Corpus Christi Jobs: Overview

If you like the sea and surf, you'll love Corpus Christi, Texas. The city covers 452.2 square miles, with 327.9, or nearly three-fourths of it, under water. People who have downtown Corpus Christi jobs are only 25 minutes from Padre Island, the largest barrier island in the U.S. For students who want to be seaside, the Corpus Christi campus of Texas A&M University is the only U.S. university on an island. The campus has natural wetlands nearby and a hike-and-bike trail with beautiful views of the beach and bays.

With its high windspeeds over the surf, the city draws kiteboarding enthusiasts from all over the world. To escape from the wind and rain, visitors to the bayfront can slip into one of the eight Miradores del Mar—gazebos that are built into the seawall. Since their restoration, wedding parties often use these gazebos to put a breath of fresh air into their small ceremonies or photos. Ready for your own photo op in one of the miradores? If you plan to set sail for jobs in Corpus Christi, you might want to expand your search to inland cities like San Antonio, Galveston, and Houston as well.
