Get Hired in Cyberspace: Texas A&M's Virtual Career Fair Is June 30th


Unemployment is at an historic high, the global economy has seen better days, and a pandemic has shaken communities to their core. What a fine time graduate college, am I right? Well, thankfully, the professionals in charge of Career Services are doing all they can to take care of the students coming out of the Texas A&M system with their landmark Summer 2020 Virtual Career Fair, taking place on Tuesday, June 30th across the entire cyber landscape. I spoke with Karl Kimsey about it on High Plains Morning; he’s the Employer Relations Coordinator at West Texas A&M in Canyon.

Here’s how it works: students can view employers, and employers can view students. There’s an option to enter into a chat room with certain employers, and you can even escalate it into a video chat. (So, students,  be dressed for success!) You can hear my full interview below. You can register up until June 30th, but why wait? Register now! if you have any questions beyond that, just give Karl a call at 806.651-2345 or send an email.

Jenny Inzerillo joined HPPR in 2015 as the host of High Plains Morning, our live music program that airs weekdays at 9 am to noon CST. Broadcasting from KJJP in beautiful downtown Amarillo, she helps listeners wake up with inspired music from our region and beyond. Tune in for new voices in folk/Americana, deep cuts from your favorite artists, soulful tracks from singer/songwriters across the world, and toe-tapping classics dating as far back as the 1920s. Plus, discover underground greats that just might be your new favorite band.
