University of New Orleans students and alumni should apply now for jobs and internships with DXC Technology, the end-to-end IT services company that is creating 2,000 new tech jobs in New Orleans starting in January.
The company is seeking alumni and students—especially graduating seniors—from the science, technology, engineering, math and business fields who are interested in full-time jobs and internships.
On Friday, Jan. 19, representatives from DXC will conduct an informational event for its new Digital Transformation Center in New Orleans. The event will go from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. at UNO's University Center and is open to the public. It will include opportunities to learn about the company and speak with DXC Technology representatives.
DXC Technology eventually will employ 2,000 professionals in the largest technology project announced by LED and the State of Louisiana to date.
Based in Virginia, DXC recently announced its plan to establish a Digital Transformation Center in downtown New Orleans and to partner with the UNO in order increase the number of degrees awarded in key areas. Valued at more than $25 billion, DXC is about the 110th largest company in the world, with 170,000 global employees and nearly 6,000 clients.
The company plans to hire 300 IT and business enterprise professionals during 2018, then ramp up to 2,000 jobs over five years and an annual payroll exceeding $133 million by 2025. The jobs, which are expected to pay $63,000 annually on average, aren't exclusively tech jobs. They include positions such as project managers, business analysts, software developers and engineers.
Interviews will be scheduled soon, but applicants must be registered online to be considered for a position.
To participate in the Jan. 19 open event, attendees should report to UNO's University Center, which is near the intersection of Alumni Drive and Elysian Fields Avenue on the University of New Orleans campus.

“The University of New Orleans is committed to forging a close relationship with DXC Technology in order to provide it with the prepared and highly skilled graduates that it needs to flourish in New Orleans,” UNO President John Nicklow said.
DXC Technology was formed in April 2017 by the merger of CSC and the Enterprise Services Division of Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Its arrival in Louisiana cements Louisiana’s position as one of the fastest-growing software and IT destinations in the U.S.
