(HARLINGEN, Texas) – The Office of Career Services at Texas State Technical College is not letting working remotely stop it from helping TSTC students on their path to a new career.
The department is set to host an On-the-Go Drive-Thru from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, March 10, to reiterate to students that despite the fact that most of the TSTC staff is working from home, they are still available to assist whenever and wherever they can.
Office of Career Services director Viviana Espinosa said that the purpose of the event is to benefit students and alumni.
“We want to promote our services to them,” she said. “We actually have a Virtual Job Fair coming up in late March, and employers are eager to connect with our students and alumni.”
The event will follow TSTC’s coronavirus protocols, and while students will not be able to meet with staff indoors that day, they will still be given guidance that they need.
“They will be able to schedule appointments to meet with our Career Services staff face-to-face or virtually after the event,” Espinosa said.
TSTC Career Services associate Ashley Perez said that she hopes students leave the event with a clear understanding of the department.
“We want our TSTC students to become more informed about the services we have to offer,” she said. “This includes resume assistance, interviewing assistance, career placement and job fairs. We want to let students know we are still here to help them, even while working remotely.”
Espinosa shared the same sentiment.
“Our hope is that through this event we will remind students that we are readily available to assist them as they prepare to enter the workforce,” she said. “We want to hear from our students, we want them to stay engaged, and ultimately we want to connect them to all available options.”
