AUSTIN – Five Texas cities in four weeks. It might sound like a band's tour schedule, but it was actually Samsung Austin Semiconductor's tour schedule for the Texas State Technical College's
(TSTC) spring industry job fair.
TSTC is a coeducational two-year institution of higher education offering courses of study in technical vocational education. TSTC offers more than 50 programs in a wide range of industries ranging from aviation to manufacturing at 10 campuses across Texas.
The People Operations and Fab Engineering teams started the spring job fair at TSTC's Marshall campus in northeast Texas on March 17 and wrapped up the season in Harlingen on April 7.
"At these events, we are looking for graduating students who are ready to put their degree to work as technicians in advanced manufacturing," People Operations supervisor Lois Tiller said.
This year's TSTC job fairs were also the first in-person career events held on the five campuses since the pandemic.
