By Sheryl E. Taylor

The Career Development Center and UHD Sports & Fitness are joining forces to host the first-ever Jobs 4 Gators Job Fair from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, July 30 at the Jesse L. Jones Student Life Center.

This event provides all UHD departments and offices the opportunity to speak with multiple candidates for Federal-Work Study, Texas Work-Study or PT Non-CWS assistant positions in a convenient setting.Interested departments and offices must:

  • Register and post job (s)
  • Create a Contact Profile
  • Request an Information Session

Tables will be provided; however, departments are encouraged to bring table cover and canopy.

All current UHD students and incoming students for the fall 2019 semester are invited to attend. Interested students should:

  • Register
  • Required Attire: Business Casual (no shorts or T-shirts)
  • Bring Copies of Resume (strongly recommended)

“As the employer for over 30 student employees at UHD at any given time, we knew that we needed to increase our pool of great candidates,” said Rhonda Scherer, associate director, UHD Sports & Fitness. “When we approached Kathy Knapp, director of UHD Career Development Center, and her team, they were excited to spearhead a job fair. The Center emphasized that students should apply earlier for job opportunities on campus. The interview process will also aid them in getting a job no, but also in the future after graduating from UHD. We hope that other colleges and departments will take this opportunity to meet interested student employee candidates at the July 30 fair.”
