Business & Hospitality Career Fair at TAMIU Today



Update your résumé, clean your suit and get ready for the Texas A&M International University Office of Career Services Business and Hospitality Fair Thursday, March 7, 1 – 4 p.m. in the Student Center (SC) Ballroom. It is an opportunity to network with employers and learn about possible internships or employment vacancies.

TAMIU students and alumni are strongly encouraged to participate, but the community is also welcome to attend.

Registration is not necessary.

“Those attending the Fair should come prepared with their résumé and dressed in casual business attire. Employers have told us time and again they are far more impressed with students when they come prepared for a potential job interview, which means having a résumé ready to turn in and dressed in appropriate business attire,” said Laura Martínez, director, employer relations, Office of Career Services.

“We encourage students and alumni interested in beginning or advancing their career to stop by the Fair for a chance to meet with potential employers. We also strongly recommend coming by the Office of Career Services for help with résumés and to learn more about networking,” Martínez added.

There will also be opportunities to polish networking skills at the “Network and Elevator Pitch Workshop,” noon – 1 p.m. and 5 – 6 p.m. in SC 114, Career Café.

At the Fair, participants will have the chance to meet with recruiters from: TAMIU Office of Graduate Studies; International Bank of Commerce; Texas Department of Public Safety; TAMIU Office of Human Resources; Laredo Independent School District; Association of Laredo Forwarding Agents, Inc.; Entravision; Texas Department of Family and Protective Services; TAMIU A. R. Sanchez, Jr. School of Business; C.H. Robinson; Federal Department Insurance Corp.; Wells Fargo Bank; Sames Motor Company; Rush Truck Center; R + L Truckload Services; State Farm Insurance; Verizon Wireless; Del-Tex Marketing Group; Doctor’s Hospital; and McDonald’s.
