Industry: The Economic Engine Among Stakeholders






Process Operations Tech

With the second-largest economy in the United States, Texas has long been a major economic driver on the world stage. In fact, CNBC ranks the Lone Star State as the No. 1 state in the United States for business in 2018, and the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas reports that the Texas economy remains in a broad-based expansion. That means more jobs and more opportunities for Texans!

However, for the Texas economy to grow, industry must have a job-ready, skilled workforce. The Legislature specifically designed Texas State Technical College to supply that workforce and then, through the Returned-Value Formula, incentivized the College to maximize its efforts. The Texas economy, especially in highly specialized, heavily industrialized sectors, depends upon TSTC’s performance.

Because job placement upon graduation is central to the College’s measure of success, it is critical that the College understand the specific skill sets needed by employers in today’s marketplace. Toward that end, TSTC engages industry leaders in 40 active advisory groups, involving 409 companies, to address program content and training needs. TSTC also routinely uses market analysis and analytics to gauge program viability and to ensure that the availability of jobs matches program offerings in each campus’ region.

TSTC has an open-door policy for employers seeking hires and hosts them almost daily on its campuses. Additionally, the College sponsors eight Job Fairs each year to link students and employers.

Through, a free service, employers are able to:

• Build a profile.• Search prospective applicants.

• Refer job postings.

• View résumés.

• Report a hire.

TSTC is committed to helping Texas employers find the exceptional employees they need to grow their industry and to grow Texas. TSTC students are both job-ready and highly trained. They are exceptional!
