LSU Career Services, College of Education to Host Teacher Interviewing Day

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.”
