Employers to visit San Jacinto College to find right candidates for jobs

09.21.2015 | By Jeannie Peng-Armao

PASADENA, Texas – San Jacinto College is shaking up the way career fairs are held by bringing employers directly to the students studying for careers in their industries.

The College will host Employer Information Sessions from Oct. 19 to Oct. 28 at various departments on the Central Campus, located at 8060 Spencer Highway in Pasadena, Texas. Employers will have tables located at specific buildings across the campus to meet with those students who are studying for careers in their respective industries. Alumni and community members are also invited to visit the sessions to network with employers.

"The difference in the Employer Information Sessions verses a career/job fair is that employers will be located in the building where students attend their classes," said Toni Lerch, coordinator of Career and Employment Services at San Jacinto College. "When students break for class, they will have an opportunity to speak with the employers about internships or job opportunities at their companies." 

The following is a list of Employer Information Sessions scheduled for the San Jacinto College Central Campus:
