Aviation is a large professional sector including a multitude of industries, such as the entire airline industry, aircraft manufacturing, military aviation, researchers, air safety specialists, aviation maintenance technicians, supply and cargo logistics, security, restaurant operations, airport customer services, and airfield operations.
The Port of Seattle’s strategy to develop the workforce in aviation industries involves creating more access to SEA employment opportunities for job seekers by developing career pathways for entry workers at the airport, with a focus on historically underrepresented populations and underserved communities. We focus on recruitment, retention support, education and training, and aviation career pathway programs.
Port Jobs, located in the main terminal of SEA, is the primary recruiting tool and the principal resource for people seeking employment at the airport. Providing free services to community residents, Port Jobs assists with job placement, career navigation, badging assistance, skills training, continued education, and accessing community resources.
