Plenty of Coastal Bend Jobs as Del Mar Students Graduate
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -
Nearly 400 Del Mar College students took their big walk across the stage on Friday, but what will greet them once they're off the stage and hitting the workforce?
Many graduates said they already have a job lined up, and according to Workforce Solutions of the Coastal Bend, this is a great time for college graduates. There are lots of jobs available to them. Construction, hospitality and restaurants are all in high demand, as well as jobs in transportation.
They say it is a direct impact of the Eagle Ford Shale boom. In fact, some students said they are taking jobs in the oilfield, despite getting a degree in another field.
Workforce Solutions said there are at least 1,000 job openings everyday here in the Coastal Bend area.
