Lehua Wood with US Oil Worker says they have been doing job fairs across the country, with this being their first one in Lafayette. "Lafayette is a great starting point to get some qualified job seekers to fill these companies' employment opportunities," says Wood.

"We recommend job seekers dress business-casual because we do have a lot of the HR managers and recruiters coming in person, face-to-face, meeting with applicants," says Wood. "We recommend either dress pants, collared shirts or blouses, dress shoes. As for the resumes, we do ask that job seekers bring at least a minimum of 15 resumes. We definitely don't want them leaving the event to go make copies. This way they're prepared. Try to keep your resumes to a minimum of one page."
