Students Participate in Back Office Day

Eight OPSS Students Win Scholarships
Posted on 03/08/2018

Students from five high schools in Ouachita Parish recently had the opportunity to learn about business careers in the region by participating in “Back Office Day” at the University of Louisiana at Monroe. Students heard from ULM faculty and area business leaders about careers in management, marketing, accounting, finance, risk management and insurance, computer information services and information technology. Following the presentations, students traveled to CenturyLink to hear from human resource directors about the various careers available at their headquarters. The goal of “Back Office Day” is for students to discover what interests them most in business, what it takes to get a degree in that field, and the types of jobs available in our community once they graduate from college.

“Back Office Day” is a collaboration of the ULM College of Business and Social Sciences, the Monroe Chamber of Commerce, the Monroe City School Board, the Ouachita Parish School Board and CenturyLink. In addition, a host of local business professionals assisted with the presentations. Students participating in the event had the opportunity to win one of nine scholarships to attend the ULM College of Business. By random drawing, 8 of the 9 scholarship recipients were Ouachita Parish students from Sterlington High, West Monroe High, and Ouachita Parish High.
