TCC to host aviation, transportation, logistics job fair

🕐 2 min read

Tarrant County College invites job seekers and area employers to the Aviation, Transportation & Logistics Job Fair on Nov. 17 from 2:30-to 5:30 p.m.

The event is free and open to students, alumni and the community and will be at the Erma C. Johnson Hadley Northwest Center of Excellence for Aviation, Transportation & Logistics at Alliance Airport, 2301 Horizon Dr. in Fort Worth.

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.

Job candidates are encouraged to dress professionally and bring copies of their résumé.

“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.

To help participants prepare for the job fair, Northwest Campus Career Services will host a résumé-writing workshop from 3-4 p.m. on Nov. 10 at the Hadley Center of Excellence’s Learning Resource Center (Room 1104).

The Hadley Center of Excellence, the largest aviation education facility in Texas, trains students for careers, including pilots, aircraft maintenance specialists, dispatchers and distribution managers. 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.

Employment in the aviation, transportation and logistics fields is projected to grow 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.

Employers and job seekers may contact Carmen Wise at carmen.wise@tccd.edu or 817-515-7267 for additional information. The job fair is hosted by Northwest Campus Career Services and the Aviation Technology Department.
