HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- If you're looking for a job or a way to earn a free education, ABC13 hosted a job fair that offers hundreds of opportunities.
This week, ABC13+, an Eyewitness News series that strives to capture the good in every Houston-area community, is exploring the Montrose neighborhood. The job fair is in partnership with Workforce Solutions that will primarily highlight jobs in Montrose.
It featured other positions available throughout the Houston area, like jobs at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, which you can land rather quickly.
"I can tell, you could pretty much start the same day," said museum spokesperson Latha Thomas.
Thomas said the museum needs immediate help in various departments such as ticket sales, help in the museum's retail store and even summer camp jobs.
"It's been challenging," Thomas said. "I think everybody is looking to hire so we are in the same boat. You can probably get a similar type of job somewhere else, but the museum is just fantastic. I mean, where else, during your break, can you walk through the dinosaur hall?"
ABC13 doesn't just want to get you a paying job. The job fair will feature free education opportunities.
The University of Saint Thomas is offering a free fall semester for the first 100 students in its new associate programs.
You can study cybersecurity, applied science in networking and electronic technology. Those degrees can land you jobs paying up to $120,000 a year, according to UST.
The job fair will feature about 600 open positions.
