The eighth annual Professional Career Reception was held today at the Picard Center.
The event is hosted every year by University of Louisiana at Lafayette Career Services, Louisiana Workforce Commission, One Acadiana, and Lafayette Economic Development Authority.
Job seekers were able to meet with hiring managers from a variety of companies that are hiring for openings in management, sales, finance and banking, engineering, technology, software development, customer service, accounting, marketing, healthcare and more.
Attendees were encouraged to bring copies of their resumes and to dress professionally.
“The career reception provides an intimate atmosphere for job seekers to connect with companies that are looking to fill professional positions,” said Ryan LaGrange, LEDA’s Manager of workforce Development. “This is a great opportunity for experienced professionals and recent graduates to meet with local hiring managers.”
