ExxonMobil presents the College of Engineering with grant for successful recruiting

On Tuesday, Nov. 23, ExxonMobil US Recruiting presented the Lamar University College of Engineering with a grant check to acknowledge the university’s role in providing a constant source of quality engineering hires for their company. ExxonMobil has consistently hired graduates from LU for all the local sites and beyond.
“Throughout the challenges and changes the pandemic brought to the past couple of years, we continue to see the value of hiring Lamar University students,” said Carl Jenkins, ExxonMobil Team Captain for Lamar University. “LU graduates are practically trained and can stand up to any graduates from bigger schools.”
The Lamar University College of Engineering works with employers to find and hire students who will be a good fit for their organization, both through semi-annual engineering career fairs, assisting in coordinating and hosting interviews, and maintaining contact throughout the year to help connect students with jobs as they become available.

“ExxonMobil has a long history of supporting a number of LU College of Engineering’s initiatives and we very much appreciate this support,” said Brian Craig, dean of the College of Engineering. “We take pride in preparing our engineering students to be more job-ready when they graduate through our advanced, yet practical curriculum, labs, centers, and an aggressive engineering internship program. The end result is engineering graduates that are highly sought after in our region, state and nation.”
