Culinary art students sought for galley

HARLINGEN — Texas State Technical College recently hosted recruiters from Seafarers International Union of North America, the largest North American union representing merchant mariners from the Port of Houston, at the Culinary Arts dining room. Recruiters from the company were invited to TSTC by State Rep. Eddie Lucio III and TSTC Provost Dr. Stella Garcia after the workers union showed interest in hiring graduates from Culinary Arts for its sea vessels. The company is looking for skilled and talented chefs who have experience cooking and supervising in a kitchen setting.

Seafarers International Union will work closely with TSTC’s Talent Management and Career Services to return later in the year for a recruitment event with the opportunity of speaking to current students and alumni about the job opportunities and benefits available to them if they join the company.
