Texas A&M University-San Antonio will host a Justice and Wellness Career Expo 1 p.m.-4 p.m. March 30 in the first floor lobby of the Science and Technology Building.

This is the first time a career fair on campus will focus on the justice and wellness fields, said Cheyenne Hayes, career adviser at the Mays Center for Experiential Learning and Community Engagement, whose Office of Career Services will host the event.

For students in the justice and wellness majors, they can focus on the opportunities they see at the career fairs, said Hayes.

The center offered an expo in fall 2022 for students interested in careers in the health professions.

“So there is a possibility for more boutique-style fairs to happen specifically catering to certain groups of majors,” Hayes said.

Hayes said the event, “can open up different opportunities whether that’s learning from a guest speaker or connecting with employers on careers they could consider.”

Students at A&M-San Antonio can seek internships, part-time jobs, graduate school and networking for their professional careers.

The event will include special guest speakers: Dr. Leonel Lopez III, medical director of the University Health System, and Assistant Chief Deputy Ricardo Esqueda with Bexar County Sheriff’s Office.

The companies and programs that will attend are Travis County Probation, the
University of the Incarnate Word School of Physical Therapy, University Health System and the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.

Dressing in business attire is best for students attending the expo, Hayes said.

Participants should keep an eye out for Jag swag or snacks at student organization tables.

Students are encouraged to bring a resume and business cards. They can visit Career Services in the Mays Center for resume assistance.

“Students that want to be successful in getting a job or internship should have the courage to introduce themselves,” Hayes said, “That’s the first step to getting an opportunity, and from there it’s showcasing the skills that are relevant to the career.”

To make an appointment, students can call the Mays Center at 210-784-1356.

They should bring their student ID or have their Jag number available when they arrive at the expo.

To access the listed opportunities or register, use the handshake app at or RSVP on the JagSync website at
