The Coastal Bend College (CBC) Beeville Campus, along with Kicker 106 and Workforce Solutions of the Coastal Bend (WFSCB), hosted the Coastal Bend College Community Career & Job Fair on March 25 in the Peter S. Marecek Physical Fitness Center.

CBC provided students and community members with opportunities to connect with over 40 local and state employers in a variety of professions. Individuals were able to speak one-on-one with various representatives about employment opportunities that are currently available within their businesses/agencies.

“Our goal at CBC is to provide our students with the tools and opportunities that are necessary to be successful not only in the classroom, but also in their future professions,” CBC’s Dean of Student Services Lupe Ganceres said. “This year we were able to attract employers seeking our current students that have majored in various programs that CBC offers. We hope that this event continues to grow and aid in the future endeavors of past, present and future CBC students.”

Each academic and workforce program that CBC offers equips students with the skills and knowledge to help them have a successful transition into the workforce. Producing high quality employees to meet the demands of the Coastal Bend economy and workforce is a top priority at CBC.

“Coastal Bend College has a lot to offer not only the Victoria Police Department, but the City of Victoria as a whole,” Patrol Officer Andy Garcia said. “The students that they have to offer graduate college with a certificate or two-year degree and that is exactly what we are looking for. A two-year degree from a college with a distinguished program is a perfect fit for the Victoria Police Department.”

Employers who were unable to attend the career fair should contact the CBC Career Services Office via phone or via email to make arrangements for job postings to appear on a career service and employer network that is available to all current CBC students.

If you have any questions regarding the upcoming career fairs at the Alice, Kingsville or Pleasanton Site, please contact the CBC Career Services Office via phone at 361-354-2728, or via email at careerfair@coastalbend.edu.
