Airports Authority Sponsors Job Fair With District Government

The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority will sponsor a Job Fair in conjunction with the District of Columbia Department of Employment Services on Tuesday, March 27th.  This event will provide information to District residents about job opportunities at Washington Dulles International and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airports.



The Job Fair will be held at the Sheraton Four Points Hotel at 1201 K Street, N.W. in Washington, D.C., from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.




This special event is designed to highlight the range of employment options at Washington’s airports which include: food and retail sales; electrical and other skilled trade positions; grounds keeper; baggage handler; administrative and clerical; and security positions.




Representatives will be available to discuss these and other positions that are available.




This Job Fair is part of the ongoing programs of the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority to involve the greater Washington community in the operations of the airports.




Dulles and National Airports together employ over 25,000 people in the region, generate over $6.5 billion in business revenue and contribute over $230 million in state and local taxes.
