ASU presented students with various employment opportunities on Jan. 30 at a part-time job fair in the Houston Harte University Center.
The event welcomed representatives of food services, law enforcement, on-campus jobs, retail stores and other businesses to talk to students.
Students who are interested to work on campus and need a job that works well with their schedule should visit the Career Development tab on the ASU website.
“Our positions we have available are cashiers, cooks and servers,” said Stacey Patterson, director of marketing and guest services for Chartwells. “If you go to our website at dineoncampus.com/angelo, you can see our full range.”
While some students may want to stay close to campus, others who are interested in childcare may apply to the YMCA and their after-school programs.
“We have a starting pay at $7.75 depending on position and departments,” said Patricia Longoria, human resources director for the YMCA. “We have lifeguards, the welcome center and the fitness center.”
Longoria said the company wants employees who are hard workers, responsible, dependable, have flexible hours and good customer-service skills.
Individuals who are energetic, have a car and want to control how much they make should apply to San Angelo To Go.
“We are hiring for delivery drivers and you do get paid by how many delivers you do, plus tips,” said Carson Beavers, owner of San Angelo To Go. “If you’re going to hustle, you’re going to make a lot of money.”
Korona’s Bridal on Knickerbocker Road is looking for students who are interested in deliveries and are good with customers. The business has a starting pay of $8 to $9 an hour or more with experience.
Individuals who enjoy talking about sports, the latest news or music may want to consider work at local radio stations.
“We are looking for part-time employees who have commitment, passion for what they’re doing, availability and willingness to learn,” said Rick Andrews, Foster Communications operations manager.
Andrews said the start pay for a new employee is $7.25, but the pay can increase in the future if the employee does well. New employees will also have the night and weekend shift with the eventual possibility of better hours.
Students who attended the event and were excited to see multiple offers open to them.
“I liked how there were many businesses and opportunities for college students to get jobs,” Maxwell Garza, freshman, said. “I want someone who is going to train me properly, and not see my disability as a reason to not promote me.”
