Talent Acquisition | LSU Human Resource Management

Talent Acquisition

The Talent Acquisition section of Human Resource Management acts as a strategic partner to departments and serves as a resource for recruiting and sourcing top talent at LSU. Through intentional recruiting, consulting, and marketing, this team supports LSU’s vision of being a leading research-extensive university to help solve the state’s economic, environmental and social challenges. 

Talent Acquisition offers several services including: job advertising suggestions, mock interviews, recruitment consultation, and more! By attracting top faculty and staff to the University, we can partner together to broaden and support research and teaching initiatives, bridge the diversity gap to foster present-day expertise and ideas, as well as support the overarching hiring process that continues to reinforce LSU as one of the largest employers in the state of Louisiana.
