ABC13 virtual job fair: Who’s Hiring event features ways women can tap into high-paying petrochemical jobs

GALVESTON, Texas (KTRK) — Petrochemical plants are introducing women to jobs, and ABC13 has a way to help women tap into those positions as well.

The 2022 Women in Industry Conference is taking place Thursday at Moody Gardens in Galveston. It features a number of petrochemical plants.

The video above is from a previous job fair.

The oil and gas companies want to introduce women to jobs. Right now, less than 5% of those jobs are filled by women.

If you can’t attend the conference, ABC13 has a way for you to learn more. At 10:00 am, we’re partnering with Workforce Solutions to host a virtual job fair.

During the half-hour event, participants can apply for jobs. There are dozens of positions from companies looking to hire quickly.

Some of the jobs pay $24 an hour. In addition to applying for jobs, there’s an ABC13 hotline, where participants can call and talk to a recruiter and get free help for items including adult education, jobs and child care assistance.

The number is 713-243-6663.

To preview the positions, visit Workforce Solutions’ website, and look for the “as seen on ABC13” section.
