BATON ROUGE – LSU Career Services and the College of Education will host Teacher Interviewing
Day on Monday, March 26, at the Carl Maddox Field House. Teacher Interviewing Day
connects recruiters from across the U.S. with LSU students and alumni seeking full-time
positions in the teaching, counseling, library and social work fields.
Educators and administrators representing 75 recruiting schools and school districts will participate this semester.
LSU Career Services encourages students to begin to use their services as soon as
they begin coursework at LSU. They help with every aspect from building résumés to
practicing interview skills.
Planning committee volunteers are Dot Rumfellow, committee chair; Cheryl Singer, board
chair; Nancy Hammatt and Vickie Holden. Staff support is provided by Karen Callender,
coordinator of field experiences in the LSU College of Education.
The Peabody Society offers the students more than moral support, water bottles and
healthy snacks. These volunteers know exactly how the students feel and what they
need to be successful.
“Our alumni have been on both sides of the table as interviewers and as applicants,”
said Rumfellow, an educator and administrator for more than 40 years. “Some of our
volunteers have even been recruiters for LSU’s Teacher Interviewing Day.”

semester or for another of the dozens of recruiting events held annually for LSU students
and alumni must have an active and approved résumé in the LSU Career Services “Careers2Geaux”
system. To learn more, visit http://careercenter.lsu.edu/careers2geaux or make an appointment by calling 225-578-1548.
