“This annual event is a great opportunity for Galveston College students to practice their soft skills as they enter into their respective career fields and learn about the various four year transfer institutions in the Gulf Coast area,” said Dr. LaToya Mills-Thomas with the Galveston College Career Services and Student Success Center. “In addition, every year there is always a handful of students who leave our intimate career fair with gainful employment. This is the icing on the cake.”
Employers, universities and colleges that would like to register to participate can contact Dr. Mills-Thomas at (409) 944-1221 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
