Aviation Job Fairs Offer an Additional Resource for Your Career Search

Throughout the year, many organizations, associations, and college campuses hold career fairs for jobs in the field of aviation. Although these aviation job fairs are often intertwined with conferences involving keynote speakers and educational sessions, career opportunities are often found among the exhibit hall.

 

There are many reasons why you should consider making aviation job fairs a part of your career search. Not only are they a great place to network with other aviation professionals, but also they are a great place to build relationships with potential employers. Additionally, aviation job fairs can serve as a fun and exciting way to learn about the ins and outs of the aviation industry.

 

Here are just a few of the upcoming aviation job fairs:

-Washington Aviation Association

The association’s 33rd annual northwest aviation conference and trade show will be taking place February 20-21 in Puyallup, Washington. The conference offers a large exhibit area, over 400 display booths, and national speakers.

 

-Women in Aviation International

The organization’s 27th annual conference will be taking place March 10-12 in Nashville, Tennessee. The conference offers speakers, educational sessions, and an exhibit hall that will appeal to professionals at all points in their career.

The organization’s 40th annual convention and career exposition will be taking place August 10-12 in Lombard, Illinois. Last year’s event brought out more than 1500 professionals, as well as recruiters from 30 different companies.
