Pleasure Pier Job Fair

For decades, the historic Pleasure Pier served as a tourism catalyst for Galveston’s Seawall Boulevard and the Texas Gulf Coast. More than 40 years after the original Pleasure Pier was destroyed by Hurricane Carla, Landry’s has transformed the Pleasure Pier into a world-class amusement park for all ages.

Pleasure Pier will host a job fair from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Jan. 29-30 in the Moody Hall Lobby on the Galveston College campus. Learn about exciting career opportunities including:
