It’s 38th Annual Washington Women in Trades Career Fair!
When: Friday, May 12, 2017 at 9am – 2pm

Where:Fisher Pavilion at Seattle Center

Free!  All are welcome

IF…
…you’re considering a career in the construction trades,
…you’re seeking to meet great apprentices for your training program,
…you’re ready to place workers on a project,
…your students are looking for options other than IT or college careers,
…you need a job,

OR finally…
…you’re just curious,

…stop by on Fisher Pavilion at Seattle Center Friday, May 12.
Exhibitors:  Register here
Schools:  Register here
(schools are encouraged to register, but it’s not required)

More Info here
Don’t hesitate to contact us if you need more information.

Just what IS this event, you ask?

Every spring for the last 38 years, Washington Women in Trades has created a place where over 1,000 people gather; some teach, some learn, some recruit, some apply for jobs, some are hired!

About the Exhibitors:
They include apprenticeship programs, governmental agencies, colleges, vocational training and corporations. Among many others, past participants have included King County, Gary Merlino Construction Company, Inc., the Boeing Company, and the Seattle Fire Department. Training programs include apprenticeships with the Sprinkler Fitters, Carpenters, Laborers, Operating Engineers, Pipefitters, Electricians, Elevator Engineers and of course, the Ironworkers. This is only a sampling. We estimate over 80 exhibitors in 2017.

Some exhibits are outside. Seattle City Light’s famous climbing pole is right next to the equally famous Seattle Center Fountain. King County Solid Waste brings a giant pink semi and King County Facilities sets up a build project!  Indoor, the options are varied and fun, too. Learn to operate a virtual crane with the Operators, move some metal with the Ironworkers or pound a nail in three concise strokes with the Carpenters.

Exhibitors are encouraged to create interactive and enticing displays. Not only does it make learning more fun, it gives attendees an real live look at the craft. Also, the most creative exhibitors win a “best of” ribbon at the end of the day.

About the Attendees:
Schools from all over the region attend. Middle & High School aged students are introduced to the high paying, spirit empowering positions in the skilled trades.

Work ready women (and men) attend to explore options, too. Sometimes, a match is made on the spot. The exhibitor walks away with a new enthusiastic hire and the woman walks away with a living wage job.

We estimate 7-800 attendees in 2017.
We look forward to seeing you ALL on May 12 at Fisher Pavilion.

Thanks!
