A virtual career fair will take place on Wednesday, November 3 from 9:00 am until noon.

The 2021 Professional Career Fair will be held virtually via the Brazen online software.

According to the Lafayette Economic Development Authority, participating companies are currently hiring for openings in project management, finance and accounting, engineering, technology, software development, customer service, marketing, healthcare, sales and more.

“The professional career fair provides an intimate opportunity 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, early career professionals, and December 2021 graduates to meet with local hiring managers.”

The event is hosted by Lafayette Economic Development Authority, Opportunity Machine, University of Louisiana at Lafayette, Cox Business, and Rally Marketing as part of the three-day conference, Innovate South.

Job seekers are asked to register via Brazen and fully complete their profiles, including uploading their resumes, before the event begins.

LEDA says Brazen allows job seekers to create a profile, upload a resume, and review participating companies and their job openings. During the event job seekers will participate in text-based or video chats with hiring managers via smartphone, tablet, or computer.
