FORT WORTH, Texas (Nov. 3, 2016) – Tarrant County College invites job seekers and area employers to the upcoming Aviation, Transportation & Logistics Job Fair on Thursday, Nov. 17 from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.. The event is free and open to students, alumni and the community.
Representatives from up to two dozen companies will be on hand, recruiting for full-time, part-time and seasonal positions. Participating employers include the U.S. Army, DHL, UPS, FlightSafety International, PDS Tech and Van Bortel Aircraft, among others. The event will be held at the Erma C. Johnson Hadley Northwest Center of Excellence for Aviation, Transportation & Logistics at Alliance Airport (2301 Horizon Dr., Room 1201, Fort Worth,).
To help participants prepare for the Job Fair, Northwest Campus Career Services will host a résumé-writing workshop from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 10, at the Hadley Center of Excellence’s Learning Resource Center (Room 1104). The workshop is open to all.
“This is a great opportunity to research companies in the field, find out what they are looking for, and get a résumé into the employer’s hands,” said Tracy Williams, coordinator of Career Services for Northwest Campus. “Career Services is dedicated to opening doors in the job market and helping students build professional skills that allow them to be confident and competitive.”
Job candidates are encouraged to dress professionally and bring copies of their résumé. Recruitment focuses on candidates with skills specific to the aviation, transportation and logistics industries.
The Hadley Center of Excellence trains students for careers as pilots, aircraft maintenance specialists, dispatchers, distribution managers and more. Employment growth is projected in Tarrant County and beyond. The worldwide aviation industry, for example, is expected to need nearly 1.3 million new commercial pilots and maintenance technicians in the next two decades, according to Boeing’s 2016 Pilot & Technician Outlook, an industry forecast.
At 163,500 square feet, the Hadley Center of Excellence is the largest aviation education facility in Texas. Students learn with professional training equipment, including a fuselage mockup of a G-280 Gulfstream aircraft donated by Gulf Aerospace and aircraft windows donated by Southwest Airlines. Logistics students use a warehouse laboratory with an on-demand warehouse management system.
