    Here are a few suggestions:
    Caterpillar, M&M Mars, Allergan, SpaceX, Trane, L3, Manatou, FEDEX and AHP. The above represent stable companies that have good benefits and are growing.

    Michael Dutton covered the ones I would choose. L3 and Spacex are companies that I’ve applied to. Baylor Univ. and Aramark would be good too. Coca Cola, Glazer, & ICS are good also.
    Thanks,

    Good morning, This is Chuck. This area is not my expertise. Probably would invite “newer” employers in the area that may be unaware of Campusjobxpress.com. The Chamber of Commerce may have a list of newer employers.Would encourage companies that have had SUCCESS with finding the right employees with you, to bring a “business” friend with them. You probably have a list of HR people that your company stays in touch with. Maybe some “store” managers from Walmart, Lowes, Home Depot, City of Waco. Not sure if you want a “shotgun” approach or “target” certain industries. Probably also needs to be repeated quarterly.. To keep it in their mind for future reference.

    Baylor of course has a lot of opportunities but they are limited in the non-education backgrounds. That doesn’t mean the don’t exist and I have applied for several over the last year. Unfortunately I don’t always fill all of their requirements…but I apply anyway.

    Just some additional thoughts from Chuck. Some of the “newer” companies could be Aldi’s Foods, Conns , SpaceX,;Expanding companies, Allen Samuels Dodge, Richard Carr Motors, even QTI promotions.I know Melvin wants to know “why”, Many of these companies may be unaware of the resources, contacts, and tools that you offer.In todays high tech world, the connections that campusjobxpress.com offer more reaching area, down to San Antonio, Austin, the I35 corridor. Wishing you a successful breakfast.

    Hello Everyone, I would like to see people from the Social Work Field( all agencies that job seekers are going to college to better themselves would be nice to sit down and have breaskfast with and ask question on our behalf). Im currently in college working on my Social Worker degree, so to see some of the agencies looking for someone to do their intern there and possiable a job line up afterwards would interest me. The reason why I suggest this is because alot of job seekers have went back to school to change there degree and it would be nice to find a new career job in the feild we are currently going to college for.

    One more idea, a new company to Waco, ; Building 8 new locations, that will need staffing. The company is “STRIPES” convenience stores. Based in South Texas. Campusjobxpress.com, has connections for quality employees contacts. Again, they may not be aware or your company web-site, and your edge, able to work fast…

    I agree with MDutton’s list. I would like to see companies look pass one’s resume and not take the job seeker seriously, because he/she is not seeking a job in the area of his most recent employment. For intense, I taught for 18 years, but I am not seeking a teaching job. I feel that the companies, where I have applied for a cashier’s or secretarial positions, just ignore my experience in those areas, because I did those types of jobs earlier in my career. I, also, hesitate to apply for some jobs, because I’m afraid they must companies want the people that they hire to “hit the job running”! I would need some training, but I don’t think they have time to give, at least, some minimual training! I appreciate the fact that you are trying get a variety of busineses, for this closer encounter (the breakfast) with us job seekers! This is Ionia Jones, wishing everyone a great week.

    The suggestions already made sound good to me- I would just add the major hospitals in the area (i.e. Hillcrest, Providence, Scott & White)

    I would like to see something in the field of psychology or counseling. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Supervisor and am going back to school to become a Clinical Psychologist.

    By the way, I got the job to work on the Mobile Assessment Team. Although it is per diem, I have three shifts per week and am paid per number of call outs I receive. I could still potentially be paid more than I am currently being paid. I had orientation last night. My last day at my current job is next Friday.

    You may be interested in some of the utility type companies that operate in the Waco and surrounding areas such as Osmose, Atmos and Driver Pipeline. These are construction related career opportunities.

    I would like to see outsides sales companies. I have
    experience selling for food companies; however, I am open
    to any good opportunity.

    This is for Charles Becker who indicated that STRIPES is
    coming into the Waco Area. I had a phone interview with
    them this past Monday. They require that the candidate will spend 10 weeks in Houston for training. Unfortunately, I was not able to spend that much time away from home.

    I think the majority of the companies/trades have been covered. I like the idea of “bring a business friend”. This way you may get to reach out to businesses that are not aware of the services you provide.

    Which jobs can set up to work from a home computer?

    This could be a viable option for some folks.

    I really want to work for city or any government job that on my field. Unfortunately , the government cut the budget, and it’s even harder to find one now.

    I work in the Information Technology sector – providing solid computer hardware and software services insuring data protection for 2 sites in Texas for the past 12 years – another company bought us out – my office was forced to close.

    I have deep roots in this area, I am looking for a company to support in McLennan and/or surrounding counties.

    I love to teach and train, but have no current credentials in this field. I would like to speak with a company who would value skills I have acquired from life experience, not just job experience.

    It looks like most of the bases have been covered. I would suggest looking into ways to develop relationships with school districts both large and small, so if they have a need they have a bigger selection of possible candidates. Also, independently owned medical/dental offices that might need positions filled,possibly Family Health Center and area non-profits.
