Twenty-one aviation and related support businesses from various sectors will be participating including the Airports Department, City of Fresno, airline partners, California Air National Guard, air cargo, Fixed Based Operators as well as federal partners such as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Transportation Security Administration (TSA). Combined, employers are looking to fill over 200 positions with many of them offering onsite interviews.

Bringing these industry employers together provides a valuable service for FAT’s partners and related businesses by supporting their hiring needs and connecting community members with available employment opportunities at their hometown airport.
