The career fair brought out an amazing number of students and recent graduates hopeful to find connections and a possible position at one of the many businesses represented today around Lafayette.  Businesses like Stuller, Inc. all the way to Frank's Casing Crew and Rental Tools, Inc. set up booths at today's career fair.  With copius amounts of students and graduates looking to find jobs.  The general consensus of the participants here today was hopeful, but also very anxious about landing a job in the current world of business.

"It's a little nerve-wracking.  A lot of interviews, a lot of going out there trying to find work, but it's a process," says Donald Broussard, a recent graduate of UL.

"Scared, to be totally honest with you, just completely scared and just ready to see if there's anything out there for me," says Andrew Green, student at Louisiana College graduating in May.

Participants were glad to have an event like the career fair here today to have an opportunity to meet and consult with potential employers.  The fair welcomed all majors with multiple employers recruiting for internships, co-ops, and full-time positions.
