Summer Camp Job Fair
Thursday, February 4 (11 AM - 2 PM)
Are you looking for students to work at your summer camp? Tarleton State University, Texas A&M University Corpus Christi, and West Texas A&M University have partnered up to bring you a pool of great students from across the state of Texas!
This virtual format will allow you to connect with students from your home or office at work and is of no cost to you. You will register through Handshake, but may utilize another video conferencing platform on the day of the fair. You will simply provide a link to that source when setting up your schedule. Please note that, when using programs others than Handshake, students may have issues downloading and connecting the day of the fair so the utilization of Handshake is encouraged.

This fair is being hosted ON the Handshake platform, so that's the only software you need to connect with our terrific students! The team at Handshake is working overtime to provide us all with tools, please visit their Virtual Career Fair Launch Kit for an overview of the experience, as well as for resources and videos on how to register, set up schedules and sessions.
