Inviting students from all majors and backgrounds, Texas State University-San Marcos Career Services will host the annual summer jobs fair Feb. 4, 1:30- 4:30 p.m. at the LBJ Student Center Ballroom.
The summer jobs fair is held every spring and brings employers offering seasonal opportunities in a variety of fields. However, Jonathan Pliego, career advisor, said that though most positions featured by employers at the event are limited to the summer months, it presents a good opportunity for job seekers to meet with professionals in a multitude of industries and to find their way into more stable positions in the future.
"This is a great opportunity for students to get a summer job but there is also the opportunity to network for full time job opportunities," Pliego said. "It is a great networking tool for students."
Employers such as SeaWorld, Schlitterbahn, the City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department, summer camps from areas statewide as well as many others will be present at the event to mingle with students and discuss opportunities.
"We strongly encourage students from all majors and experience levels to attend the summer job fair because of the variety of employers attending," Pliego said.
