This week, the Port of Seattle announced a series of job fairs this spring aimed at hiring part-time, full-time and seasonal work for the local maritime and logistics-related industries.
More than two dozen employers related to the port industry are expected to take part in the job fairs. Port Jobs, Metro Shore Services (which represent Royal Caribbean and Celebrity Cruises) and SMS Shore Services (which represent Holland America, Princess Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Line, and Oceania Cruises, and Cruise Terminals of America) are among the job fairs’ sponsors.
“Port-related industries need to fill hundreds of jobs,” Port Commissioner Sam Cho said. “Connecting talented potential workers to port-related employers makes our facilities more efficient, improves customer service, and advances our goal of ensuring that port-related opportunities benefit everyone in our community.”
The first job fair is set for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 25-26 at Terminal 91, Magnolia
