The future of aviation is exciting, especially when you get to see it up close.
The Airport got the chance to do so during our Career and Internship Fair last month, when nearly 300 professionals, college and high school students packed our Arrivals building to discover opportunities in the industry.
Representatives from King County International Airport / Boeing Field and several of our tenants offered the attendees – who represented schools from across the state – a glimpse into what we do.
Companies and organizations represented at this year’s fair included:
- King County International Airport/Boeing Field
- The Boeing Company
- Signature Flight Support Corp.
- Kenmore Aero Services
- Galvin Flying
- ATOMIC Helicopters
- Federal Aviation Administration
- Department of Homeland Security
- Green River College
- Renton Municipal Airport
- Port of Seattle
More importantly, the young professionals learned about internship and job opportunities in aviation, which range from operations to mechanical careers to administrative and office support.
We look forward to seeing how these budding aviation professionals will shape our industry. It’s exciting stuff.
