Our Corporate Recruiting Services in the Department of Geology & Geophysics are a wonderful opportunity for employers to build a relationship with our department and our students.. If you are interested in hiring for full-time or internship positions, the information on this website will be a great deal of help to you.
There are two different services companies utilize to recruit students for jobs and internships:
1) On-Campus Interviewing and 2) Job Postings.
We offer four options for scheduling interviews in the fall semester: pre-selects only; pre-selects & fill-ins; open; and room-only. You will have to choose only one option for your interview schedules. Please call Stacey Halphen, at 225-578-3426 to schedule an interview date.
The pre-selects only schedule allows recruiters to review submitted resumes prior to their visit to campus, so they can select candidates to be interviewed before they arrive. Students who have been pre-selected then have the opportunity to sign up for interview slots. Any remaining time slots will not be filled.
Pre-selects & Fill-ins
The pre-selects & fill-ins schedule allows recruiters to review submitted resumes prior to their visit to campus, so they can select candidates to be interviewed before they arrive. Students who are pre-selected then have the opportunity to sign up first for interview slots. Any remaining time slots are then opened to other interested students.
The open schedule allows LSU students and alumni who are interested in the organization to sign up for interviews on a first-come, first-served basis.
If you choose a room-only schedule format, you will select your interview candidates from an available source, such as resumes collected at a Career & Graduate School Expo, resume drops, job postings, resume referrals, or contact with student groups. A room-only allows you to contact students directly and schedule interviews yourself after reserving your interview date with our recruiting coordinator. You must turn in an interview schedule to the recruiting coordinator prior to your visit. All interviews scheduled must be with LSU students or alumni, ONLY. By scheduling a room-only format, recruiters will not have access to the departmental pool of resumes and you will also be responsible for setting up your own Infosession.
*Both pre-select schedules and the open schedule operate during our designated 9-week recruiting period. Interested students and alumni will submit resumes to your job posting through our online system, Careers2Geaux. Recruiters will have access to these resumes through their Careers2Geaux employer profile.
Length of Interviews
After setting up your date, you will choose how long you would like each interview to last. The most popular schedule format is set up for 30-minute interviews. You may also choose to have 45-minute interviews or 60-minute interviews.
13 interviews; 8:15am-4:45pm; two 15-minute breaks; 90-minute lunch
9 interviews; 8:15am-5:00pm; two 15-minute breaks; 90-minute lunch
7 interviews; 8:15am-5:00pm; no breaks; 105 minute lunch
Many employers choose to have more than one room for interviews. You are welcome to request multiple rooms as well as request multiple days. All reservations are based upon availability.
