Queens Borough President Donovan Richards Jr. and the Council for Airport Opportunity (CAO) on Tuesday announced that the June iteration of Richards’ series of monthly job recruitment fairs at Queens Borough Hall will focus on the aviation industry, connecting residents with hundreds of job opportunities at The World’s Borough’s two airports.
“Kennedy and LaGuardia airports are more than just gateways to the entire New York region. They are two of the largest drivers of the Queens economy, supporting tens of thousands of jobs and generating billions of dollars in economic activity,” Richards said. “As the redevelopment of both airports continue and thousands more jobs are created, we are leaving no stone unturned to ensure that we are hiring locally right here in our borough. Our June 30 job fair will help us achieve that goal by enabling talented prospective employees to meet with airlines and other aviation companies hiring right now.”
The Queens Aviation Jobs Recruitment Fair, co-sponsored by Richards and the CAO, will be held in-person on Thursday, June 30, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Helen Marshall Cultural Center at Queens Borough Hall, located at 120-55 Queens Blvd. in Kew Gardens.
More than 35 companies in the borough’s burgeoning aviation industry will participate in the fair including, but not limited to, JetBlue, Delta Air Lines, Southwest Airlines, Endeavor Air, Airway LLC, OTG Management, Villa Restaurant, Prosegur Security, Modern Aviation, EULEN America, Worldwide Flight Services and more.
These companies are filling vacant positions for pilots, flight attendants, customer service representatives, food service workers, security guards, retail workers, drivers, technicians, ground services personnel, logistics personnel and more.
Walk-ins will be welcome at the June 30 fair, although it is recommended that attendees RSVP in advance at queensbp.org/rsvp.
All attendees must wear a mask while at Queens Borough Hall, in accordance with COVID-19 guidelines.
