Big name businesses and organizations gathered Wednesday at ULM to talk with upcoming graduates about possible career options.
Organizers explain it’s critical for students to prepare for what lies ahead…and to see the opportunities available in northeast Louisiana.
“It’s a great opportunity for our students to come and meet these companies because these folks are looking for our students. These folks want our students.”, explains Roslynn Pogue, Director of Career Connections at ULM
And the students feel like they’re prepared.
One construction management major says he owes it to the head of his department for helping them successfully gear up for getting a job.

“He’s really helped us with our resume, with interview skills, cover letters, stuff like that. And just kind of helped us prepare for talking to people and looking for jobs.”, says Caleb Mosher.

But with some ULM students becoming discouraged about possibly losing money through TOPS, members of the Career Connections Department say it’s important to just focus on the future.

Pogue says, “Keep moving forward, keep pushing forward. Because they’re here to get the education and theyr’e gonna get that education. They’re gonna get that degree.”
