Employment in the Fort Worth Area

Other business enterprises in more distant areas of the community also employ TCU students who have means of transportation to and from the job. Employment opportunities in the area are particularly advantageous to students who are pursuing certain career fields where on-the-job training may be helpful. The Office of Career Services provides assistance in helping students locate these types of employment opportunities.

Required are leadership ability, an appreciation for the University's educational philosophy and a concern for other students' needs.
