Looking for that next step to the rest of your life? Still searching for that one job that will lead to the career of your dreams? The first step is here the Tarleton State University 2013 Job Fair.

Tarleton is inviting community members looking for work to join students and alumni at the university's annual fall job fair on Tuesday, Oct. 8. In a press release earlier this week, Tarleton officials said the fair is open to anyone looking for a job, not just students and TSU alumni.

Representatives from various companies in the area, as well as across the state, will be in the Thompson Student Center Ballroom from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. that Tuesday. Some businesses on hand will be the Texas National Guard, Providence Medical, Fastenal, FMC, Sanderson Farms, Enterprise and CornerStone Staffing.

Opportunities will include career options, full-time jobs, part-time employment and internships. So no matter if you are a first-year student at Tarleton, graduating this semester, a Tarleton alumni or a community member looking for a change in careers, this could be the break you have been looking for.

Appropriate professional attire will be required by all those wishing to attend the fair and officials ask that all job seekers come with a resume and prepared for an interview.

Tarleton officials said they are still accepting applications from companies that would like to participate. If your company would like to attend the fair, contact the Tarleton Career Services office at 254-968-9078.
