Global technology firm CGI will conduct a career fair next week in Lafayette to fill professional positions for the company’s Louisiana operations.

The event will take place on Tuesday, February 11 from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette Research Park.

CGI says they are seeking both entry level and experienced IT professionals to fill up to 160 positions in Louisiana.

Those job roles include: business analyst and reporting, database engineer, DevOps engineer, software engineer, operations support roles, and developers and architects for multiple languages and platforms.

Louisiana Economic Development says that the company is also seeking more than 70 new college recruits available for employment by this summer. Soon-to-graduate college students and recent college graduates are encouraged to attend.

More than 80 additional professionals are being sought for technology positions that are currently open, as well as cybersecurity positions that will be filled later this year.

Those interested may apply in person, and submit their resumes and register at CGICareerFair2020.eventbrite.com. The event is open to the public and is stated to include opportunities to learn about the company and to speak with CGI representatives.

Interviews will take place on-site for qualified candidates. Attendees are asked to dress professionally and to bring copies of their resumes.

In June 2018, CGI announced a significant expansion of its Lafayette-based U.S. Delivery Center and the creation of 400 new direct jobs that will bring total company employment in Louisiana to 800.
