Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) will hold a job fair to fill immediate openings in businesses located at the Airport.  The job fair will take place Tuesday, April 19, from 10 AM to 3 PM at the Temple University Liacouras Center, 1776 N. Broad Street.

More than 30 businesses including airlines, restaurants, car rental companies, retailers, and government agencies are expected to participate in the job fair. Employers are seeking to fill 400 immediate openings, including 200 for police officers at the Philadelphia Police Department.  The private business employers have openings for customer service representatives, sales associates, bartenders, servers, bookkeepers, baristas, massage therapists, cosmetologists, managers, cashiers, and more.

The job fair is free and pre-registration is not required. There will be several on-site resources for job seekers, including a computer lab and one-on-one resume reviews.

“The Airport supports more than 141,000 jobs in the region. Nearly 20,000 of those positions are right here at the Airport,” said Airport CEO Chellie Cameron. “We are committed to ensuring that area residents and businesses have access to opportunities at the Airport and to building a workforce that benefits from the Airport’s growth.”

As part of comprehensive outreach efforts throughout the year, PHL also sponsors an online job portal, phljorportal.org, job readiness skills development workshops, capacity-building workshops for small firms, business opportunity events, and employer networking events.

For the job fair, job seekers are encouraged to wear business attire and to bring at least 25 copies of their resume. For more information, visit phl.org for a list of open positions and participating employers.

In surveys conducted two weeks after each job fair, employers indicated they offered jobs on the spot to 14 people in 2013, 29 in 2014, and 16 in 2015.  They anticipated hiring an additional 63 people in 2013, 209 in 2014, and 103 in 2015.
