Senior HR Generalist Matt Clarich and Baton Rouge Lab Manager Dale Ulkins represented GeoEngineers at Hiring Our Heroes, a job fair held in Baton Rouge on September 25th. Nearly 150 people attended the event, which was staged by the US Chamber of Commerce, the Baton Rouge Area Chamber and a number of state and national agencies. The purpose of the job fair was to help veteran job seekers, active duty military members, guard and reserve members and military spouses find jobs. GeoEngineers was one of the 50 employers that exhibited at the event.
Matt and Dale provided information to attendees interested in learning about what GeoEngineers has to offer job seekers who are veterans. Matt commented after the event, “Many veterans possess abilities that GeoEngineers looks for when hiring for certain positions. For many senior-level positions, the leadership experience that many veterans have is highly desirable. And veterans seeking field support positions are often accustomed to working in challenging conditions and understand the importance of responsibility to their team and to the assignment at hand.”
Hiring Our Heroes adds another avenue for finding talented people for GeoEngineers’ job openings, Matt added. “We’re always looking for effective ways to reach out to veterans in the workforce. As an equal opportunity employer, GeoEngineers is committed to maintaining diversity in our workplace, and that includes veterans.”
