In just a few weeks, on Wednesday, September 24, Eagle Ford Shale – one of the largest economic developments ever in Texas – is holding a job fair, and whether you’re looking for a job or not this is something everyone in our area should be pretty excited about.
Not only is Eagle Ford Shale significant in terms of our state, but based on the amount of capital invested (nearly $30 billion), this group of oil fields also ranks as one of the biggest oil and gas developments in the world. Two hundred rigs are currently running in Eagle Ford, with further development expected for decades.
This all means big business for our local economy. The Eagle Ford had a $60 billion dollar impact on the local South Texas economy in 2012 and supported more than 116,000 jobs in the area. The goal of the job fair is to continue filling positions that range from entry-level labor to professional management roles and everything in between.
If you’re new to the area or considering moving here to take advantage of the opportunities Eagle Ford represents, we encourage you to check out Springs at Corpus Christi. You won’t be alone; Eagle Ford brings hundreds of people to live and work in Corpus Christi, many of whom now call Springs at Corpus Christi home. Why? Because our brand new community has services, amenities and the attitude about serving residents that people value, including:
Resort-style pool and outdoor cooking area
Free car care area
Pets allowed, including many large breed dogs
Ground-level, private entries
All apartments have washers and dryers
Proximity to nightlife, shopping, a number of major employers, the beautiful local beaches, schools and more
