The success of the annual Oceans of Opportunities Job Fair in Galveston always depends on those who attend the job fair and who are looking for a job or a better job.
On April 19, the Galveston Island Convention Center will have 100 employers from the Gulf Coast area looking for qualified job seekers to fill their job openings. This is the largest job fair in Galveston County. If you are a recent graduate, unemployed, or just looking for new opportunities the job fair is for you.
I encourage you to make plans to attend the job fair. Dress for success with at least 25 resumes in hand and be prepared to meet employers and to network. There also will be workshops on interviewing and resume tips.
Congressman Randy Weber, the city of Galveston, Galveston Regional Chamber of Commerce, University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston College and your local Workforce Solutions Office have been sponsoring the Oceans of Opportunities for 12 years. These sponsors have been working tirelessly each year to enlist employers who can offer opportunities to job seekers.
Let’s make the 12th annual Oceans of Opportunities Job Fair another successful event.
