This year’s Texas Southmost College Career Fair is being hailed a success with nearly 40 employers that were available and ready to accept resumes and hire TSC students, graduates and community members, alike.

Carol Sandoval, TSC student services specialist for the Office of Career and Employment Services, said she is happy to finally be able to host this career fair in person since the beginning of the pandemic, especially as one of the college’s signature events.

“The purpose of this career fair is to give our soon-to-be-graduates and students the opportunity to network and have conversations with our industry partners,” said Sandoval. “Although we were having virtual career fairs, there’s nothing like an in-person event to prepare our students for employment.”

The career fair hosted various employers such as Doctor’s Hospital at Renaissance, Harlingen Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Brownsville and Los Fresnos school districts, IDEA Public Schools, SteelCoast, Advance Auto Parts and military and law enforcement agencies.

For TSC Respiratory Care student Alejandro Bazan, he found some potential employers.

“It’s great that TSC gives us, as students, the opportunity to network with possible employers, ask them questions and gain insight,” said the 26-year-old. “There were many perfect possibilities for me and my classmates with health care companies being well represented at this career fair.”

For Brownsville Independent School District Adult Education student and Brownsville community member Zoriea Castillo, TSC’s Career Fair is something that will benefit her and her family in the long run.

“There were plenty of great opportunities for us to take advantage of at TSC’s Career Fair,” said Castillo. “I’m already preparing to submit applications to a few places, and by hopefully gaining employment, this will help me support my family and come out ahead. Thank you TSC, this is an exciting moment.”

Sandoval explained that a successful event is when her department hears positive feedback from students and community members about opportunities they find during the career fair, so knowing that people were applying and finding positions that fit their needs is rewarding.

“Our ultimate goal here at TSC is to create more opportunity for our students and community, and events like our career fair, align with that mission,” she said. “Overall, this event has been a great success. Every employer is hiring, instructors brought in their students, community members have joined us, and all this means that we are creating connections that ultimately will create jobs and careers.”

TSC’s Office of Career and Employment Services helps students transition from community college to a career and/or transfer to a four-year university by assisting in areas such as job searches, resume building, cover letter writing, mock interviews and dressing for success.
