Kansas City, MO, 2023-Aug-10 — /Travel PR News/ — The Kansas City Aviation Department is teaming up with several airport partners for the Kansas City International Airport Hiring Fair. It will be held Tuesday, August 15, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the new airport terminal. Employers will be on hand to interview and hire on the spot, so interested applicants are encouraged to bring a photo ID. That is why it is called a hiring fair as opposed to a job or career fair.
The new $1.5 billion terminal opened in February 2023, serving millions of travelers since then. It takes an extended team of dedicated employees to serve nearly 40,000 travelers per day. A wide range of career options is available, including police officers, traffic controllers, dispatchers, security screeners, cooks, bartenders, retail clerks, managers, customer service, baggage handlers, maintenance mechanics, utility workers, and many more.
