ELGL is piloting the concept of a virtual local government job fair in conjunction with the virtual #ELGLInspire event on September 14, 2021 for Texas State University students. If your Texas local government agency is interested in participating, please follow these three easy steps:
Save the date for September 14, 2021 at 6:00 p.m. Your local government should have one or more people ready to meet with students and share information about your agency.
Register for this event using this link or the QR code. This will save your spot and create a virtual room/booth for your agency during the job fair.
On September 14, 2021, follow the instructions that you will receive via email to join your virtual room/booth and meet with students who stop by. Local governments will also receive a copy of the student attendee list that can be used for direct outreach for current and future recruitments.
