(RED OAK, Texas) – Texas Instruments recently sent representatives to talk to Texas State Technical College students about the possibility of a career at Texas Instruments and what that would look like.
Texas Instruments, a manufacturer of semiconductors and integrated circuits, sent a team of representatives to talk with TSTC students on Feb. 7. They held a session for both day and evening students and discussed job opportunities at Texas Instruments, as well as what they are searching for in new employees.
“We’re looking for people that we can train, that we can coach and that we can bring into the environment because we have a need,” Jimmy Carter, a representative for Texas Instruments, said.
In the past, Texas Instruments has primarily recruited those with experience; however, because of the growing need for technical workers, they have begun to recruit what they call “new technological college graduates.”
Kristen Haubrich, facilities system engineering manager for Texas Instruments, said that there is a need for new workers due to the amount of people retiring.
“We’re trying to hire newer,” she said. “(We’re trying) to get more people in the door that can learn from those that have been around for a while but that will then be with the company for a long time.”
Throughout the presentation, the representatives emphasized the stability that a job with Texas Instruments can offer.
“It’s not a job. It’s a career,” Jeremy Wood, a representative for Texas Instruments, said. “It’s a stable company. It’s a growing company.”
During the presentation, Wood listed multiple benefits and learning opportunities, including paid internships and the ability for full-time employees to receive educational reimbursement.
“TI is fully invested in training its technicians, training its people, to their fullest potential,” he said.
Multiple Texas Instruments locations were listed that have job openings not only in Texas, but also in other states, including Utah and Maine.
