Community colleges need instructors with industry experience!
The Texas Gulf Coast petrochemical industry will need more than 50,000 new workers over the next decade— thanks to plant expansions and the retirement of “Baby Boom” generation workers.
Today, 39 percent of all oil and gas jobs are located in Texas, and account for 10.7 percent of all wages in the state. The average salary for petrochemical workers in Texas is $99,700, according to the American Chemical Society.
Working together as the Community College Petrochemical Initiative, nine community colleges on the upper Texas Gulf Coast are expanding teaching capacity to train workers for these career positions, but we must have qualified instructors with “real-world” experience in the workforce who are willing to share their knowledge.
We’re looking for capable instructors for full-time and part-time faculty positions teaching petrochemical and industrial trades courses.
Our best candidates have:
- 3-5 years work experience in the subject area
- Passion for the subject
- A willingness to learn through targeted faculty training
Join a community initiative that gives back to the next generation—and build a rewarding “second career” through community college education!
