Career Services

LSU Shreveport Career Services can help you realize your career goals and develop professionally before graduation. By helping you navigate your career decisions, you'll be able to confidently search for and secure experiential opportunities, and translate your classroom knowledge into real-world success. Before graduating, Career Services hopes to help you do three things:

  • Feel confident about your major and career path;
  • Learn how to uncover internship and job leads in the field you hope to enter; and
  • Understand how to present yourself to employers and/or graduate school admissions representatives effectively, both through written materials and when speaking to them.

Career Services is located in the Student Success Center, on the first floor of the Noel Memorial Library. Connect with us by emailing or calling 318-797-5062.

Employer Partners

At LSUS, we have a centralized online job board called HANDSHAKE, a service we offer to our employer partners free of charge. This system enables Career Services to share information about your organization and the opportunities you are offering with students and alumni quickly and efficiently. It is also the entry-point for recruiting.

In addition to posting opportunities on Handshake, there are a number of ways you can build your brand on campus, some of which you can utilize right now if you have urgent needs you'd like to fill. Here are a few ways you can connect with our students:
