Fall Job Fair at Eastfield College Draws A Crowd


(Mesquite, TX) – Eastfield College Career Services presented its annual Fall Job Fair on Thursday, October 14. Twenty four organizations with forty seven recruiters participated in the event. An estimated 600 job seekers were present to talk with recruiters about employment opportunities with their organizations. Groups of students from Terrell ISD, Dallas ISD, and McKinney Job Corps came very well-prepared for the job fair and learned a great deal. Many interviews were scheduled, resumes accepted, and applications completed at the event. Door prizes were given away to job seekers, including two $300 Eastfield College scholarships funded by previous Job Fair sponsors. Twenty four volunteers assisted with the event--thirteen students, ten staff and faculty members, and one staffer from State Representative Robert Miklos' office. Employers were delighted with the friendliness and helpfulness of volunteers.

A door prize drawing allowed several job seekers to win prizes, including two $300 Eastfield College scholarships. The winners were Unique Price, a Job Corps student, and Jairo Aguilar, a current Eastfield College student and Graphic Design major from Dallas (picture attached).

The Job Fair was co-sponsored by Career Services, Office of Student Life, State Representative Robert Miklos, and the USDE Job Location & Development Program.
