Summer job fair coming to Texas State


In this economy, it’s never too early for college students to start looking for summer jobs.

Texas State University is inviting students from all majors and backgrounds to take part in 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, bringing employers offering seasonal opportunities in a variety of fields. However, said career advisor Jonathan Pliego, the fair offers job seekers a good opportunity to meet with professionals in a multitude of industries and to find their ways into more stable positions, even if the positions featured by employers at the event are limited to the summer months.

“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, and many others will be 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.
