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!

Be an Exhibitor!
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, Electricians, Elevator Engineers and of course, the Ironworkers. This is only a sampling. We estimate over 80 exhibitors in 2017.

Some of the exhibits are outdoors. Who could miss Seattle City Light's famous climbing pole next to the equally famous Seattle Center Fountain? Or King County Facility's build project?

We encourage exhibitors to create interactive and enticing displays. Not only does it make learning more fun, it gives students 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.


We're excited to see all who make this annual Career Fair possible;
the enthusiastic exhibitors, the hardworking volunteers, everyone at Seattle Center, the Rosies, the caterers, the Women in Trades staff, the schools and of course, all attendees.
