Most students desire summer fun and summer cash, and Career Development Center has set out to bring them both to your convenience.
Career Development Center is hosting its annual Summer Camp Job Fair on Jan. 29-31.
This is the first year that the job fair will run for more than a few hours in a day.
Career Development assistant Adra Enos said the expansion is good because it gives students an opportunity to attend the fair between classes, and camps have the option of setting up their booth for more than one day.
“Having the fair here for more than one day is a great idea because it gives us the opportunity to find a job even if their schedule was full on the first day of the fair,” junior Samone Foster said.
Over ten camps will be a part of this job fair, Enos said. Available positions include: life guard, horse wrangler, children’s camp counselor, arts and crafts, kitchen crew, photography and many more.
There will also be a couple of paid internships participating, she said. Camp locations range from Hill Country to Fort Worth.
“I would love to work with little kids and I think it would be a good opportunity for education majors,” Foster said. “It’s nice because you get to live in San Angelo and practice your future.”
Students looking for out-of-state summer camp opportunities will have a chance to skim through a catalog at the job fair and get information on camps in places such as New York, Enos said.
“It’s a wonderful opportunity for students, and they should take advantage of the job fair if they want a summer job,” she said. “Even if you are taking summer classes most of these camps are flexible and you can work half the summer.”
This job fair is more relaxed than normal job fairs, meaning students can dress casually, Enos said.
“You always want to make a good impression, but dressing up is not required,” she said.
The job fair will be from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. each day beginning next Tuesday.
