Halliburton kicked off the fall semester with its second Annual Career Expo for LSU College of Engineering students in the east parking lot of Patrick F. Taylor Hall on September 18, 2008. Gulf of Mexico Technology Manager, Mike Hopkins, explained the festivities, stating, “Halliburton has a dual focus pertaining to the expo. We want to convey the career opportunities available to the LSU student body. We also want to establish, from a public relations standpoint, interest in petroleum and geology departments. Recruitment is the key.”

LSU Engineering students lined up to receive a platter of jambalaya, cole slaw, beans, white bread, chocolate cookies, and a variety of beverages. “We served over 800 students today,” said Hopkins.

While students indulged in the lunch, Halliburton recruiters filled tents to inform students about the company’s employment opportunities. “The eight booths represent eight different disciplines of engineering,” Hopkins explained. “They acknowledge each product service line from drilling to sand control, pumping, and well construction.”

For the second year in a row, the Halliburton Career Expo was well received.  “You can look forward to seeing us here again next year,” said Hopkins.
