The 38th Annual

Career Fair
was held on
Friday, May 12, 2017
9am - 2pm
Fisher Pavilion at Seattle Center


Thanks to all who made our 38th year
a smashing success!
 
From the hardworking ANEW volunteers to the bumper crop of exhibitors, from the fine folks at Seattle Center to the enthusiastic attendees, it was truly a stellar day. And a little rain never hurt anyone...


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!

Exhibitors!
Exhibitors 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 and Electricians. There were over 80 exhibitors in 2017.

Some of the exhibits are outdoors. There's the inimitable Seattle City Light climbing pole, Seattle DOT's shovel test and King County Facilities' build project. Each provides a hands-on dynamic experience while learning about opportunities in the construction trades.

We encourage exhibitors to create interactive and enticing displays. Not only does it make learning more fun, it gives attendees an inside look at the craft. Also, the most creative exhibitors win a "best of" ribbon at the end of the day.


Schools!
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!
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.
