LSC-O promoting local businesses, employment at annual career fair

ORANGE — Are you seeking employment or qualified employees? Lamar State College-Orange is partnering with the Greater Orange Area Chamber of Commerce to host the 2012 Annual Career Fair from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m., Thursday, April 11, inside the LSC-O Student Center. LSC-O students and alumni of all majors are invited, as well as a number of local employers.

The career fair will provide a forum for employers to discuss career opportunities with a diverse group of around 150 technical and associate degree students and graduates. All are urged to use the career fair to distribute job applications so prospective candidates may complete them that day, so as to not burden current personnel or disrupt daily business.

Judy Choate, academic adviser and job placement coordinator at LSC-O, says that employers will have ample time and space to discuss career opportunities with students.

“Employers will benefit from cost-effective recruiting, maximum visibility and the ability to network and obtain knowledge of available training programs,” she said, “as well as gain access to qualified minority, traditional, nontraditional and special population candidates.”

Any employer with full and/or part-time co-operative education programs, internships or employment opportunities is invited to attend the career fair.

For those LSC-O students and alumni seeking employment, the career fair will provide an opportunity to network with numerous area employers. Job seekers are encouraged to bring resumes with them, as some employers may be interviewing on the spot, eliminating the need to schedule interviews at a later date.

Part of the career fair is also dedicated to the teaching field, as a number of local schools will be on hand to answer questions about the hiring process within their individual districts. Many schools will set up appointments with potential employees for interviews and will collect resumes on the spot.

Businesses who have confirmed to be at the job fair to date include Clear Channel Media and Entertainment, C&E’s Let’s Party, Claybar Funeral Home, Colonial Life, Comfort Inn & Suites, G4S Secure Solutions Inc., Department of Assisted and Rehabilitative Services, Firestone Community Federal Credit Union, Granger Chevrolet, Honeywell, KBMT-TV, Odyssey, Orange Savings Bank, Orange Workforce and PowerZone, Pampered Chef, Rape and Suicide Crisis of Southeast Texas, Signal International, Texas Department of Public Safety, The Oaks at Beaumont, The Stark Foundation, the United States Army and the United States Marines.

School districts who have confirmed include Port Arthur ISD, Little Cypress-Mauriceville CISD, St. Mary Catholic School, and West Orange-Cove CISD.

Admission is free and parents of students are welcome to attend. Employers will be eligible for door prizes and will be served a continental breakfast and lunch. Booth space is free to employers. Participants may reserve tables by calling Judy Choate, event coordinator, at 409-882-3379, email at or by fax, at 409-882-3049.
