A regional job fair will take place on Oct. 4 at the Schertz Civic Center, located at 1400 Schertz Parkway, Bldg. 5, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. The New Braunfels Economic Development Corporation, the Seguin Economic Development Corporation and the Schertz Economic Development Corporation are partnering to host the free event.

The job fair will feature approximately 40 employers ready to hire for immediate openings in a diverse range of job skills.

“It’s a great time for regional employers and employees to participate in the regional job fair in Schertz as a central location between Seguin and New Braunfels,” Schertz EDC Executive Director Adrian Perez said. "We hope everyone drives a little to see a lot of the opportunity and talent our region has to offer."

Job seekers can expect to find hundreds of openings in entry-, intermediate- and advanced-level positions in a variety of industries, including manufacturing, government, health care, education, retail and more. Those attending are encouraged to arrive in business-casual attire with multiple copies of an updated resume in hand. Many employers will conduct on-site interviews and extend employment offers during job fair hours, according to city of Seguin officials.

“We hope partnering together for a job fair will help job seekers to find employment closer to home, which not only supports the economy but reduces the impact of long-distance commutes,” Seguin EDC Executive Director Josh Schneuker said.

The collaborative effort between New Braunfels, Seguin and Schertz is intended to give job seekers and employers broader opportunities to connect and engage with interested and qualifying parties all in one place. It is the intention of the EDCs to generate a successful, accessible pool of qualified talent within the region, city of Seguin officials said.

“We have a number of great employers in attendance this year with open positions ranging from tech to manufacturing. This a wonderful opportunity for job seekers in the region to find a great long-term career,” said Michele Boggs, vice president of economic development for the New Braunfels EDC.
