Baton Rouge, La — The Baton Rouge Area Chamber and the LSU Laboratory School have announced that they will come together in a partnership to facilitate BRAC’s talent development program among LSU Laboratory School alumni.
BRAC will partner with Lab School at events to promote the region and employment activities within it.
Also, BRAC will work to find career opportunities for out-of-region Lab School graduates and provide the resumes of alumni interested in returning to the Capitol City to companies with open positions.
Wade Smith, superintendent of the LSU Laboratory School, stated, “Partnering with BRAC to advance talent development efforts among University High alumni certainly enhances our program initiatives and commitment to serve our alumni to the best of our ability. As we plan to embark on the Laboratory School’s 100th anniversary, we look forward to assisting outstanding alumni that desire to return home to our great city,”
“Our talent program hinges on having access to talent outside of Louisiana who are looking to return,” said Adam Knapp, President and CEO of BRAC. “Through partnerships like the one recently signed with Laboratory School, we are able to build a diverse talent database that not only helps regional businesses access talented individuals, but helps get the region’s talented alumni home. We look forward to working with the Laboratory School to help their past graduates reconnect to our region.”
BRAC is currently building a talent database that can be accessed when regional companies are searching for candidates for hard-to-fill positions. Those interested in being a part of the database can find more information on the “call for resumes” and confidentially submit a resume at www.brac.org/resumes .
