Successful 24th Annual Minority Job Fair at LSU in Baton Rouge
LSBA Minority Involvement Section hosted a successful 24th annual Minority Job Fair on August 18th at the Louisiana State University Paul M. Hebert Law Center in Baton Rouge from 8:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
The free Fair offered 20 employers the opportunity to compress into a single day statewide interviewing and networking of talented students and recent graduates with diverse backgrounds from area law schools. The workshop included a free networking lunch, during which Joseph K. West (President and CEO of the Minority Corporate Counsel Association) gave participants sound advice on the benefits of networking. Then, Hon. Regina H. Bartholomew, Hon. Paul A. Bonin, Hon. Ivan L.R. Lemelle, Hon. Nannette Jolivette Brown, Hon. Trudy M. White, and Hon. Max N. Tobias, Jr. facilitated with several attorneys a Speed Networking activity for approximately 40 student participants. The Speed Networking activity helped the participating law students understand the importance of networking as well as the basic fundamentals of how to make and cultivate contacts. Judge White remarked, "I enjoyed the session as much or more than the students. Speed Networking is serious, yet fun. It is a great way for a student to build relationships and to sharpen their social skills."
