The Galveston Regional Chamber of Commerce hosted the 12th Annual Oceans of Opportunities Job Fair on Wednesday at the Galveston Island Convention Center at the San Luis Resort.

The job fair is a collaboration between the chamber's Work Force Development Task Force, Work Force Solutions, Congressman Randy Weber, the City of Galveston, UTMB Health, Galveston College, the Gulf Coast Center, Texas Veterans Commission and SER.

More than 100 employers from the Galveston area were present, distributing information on their companies and accepting resumes for employment.

Weber noted that when people get jobs, they can support their family and community.

“I thought of that old saying, a rising tide raises all ships,” Weber said.
