Chicago Department of Aviation hosts largest community career fair to date at Malcolm X College

The Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA) will host a citywide job fair for Chicago residents, featuring 43 companies that operate at O’Hare and Midway International Airports. Chicago’s airports are making hundreds of full and part-time positions available at this fair, including opportunities to work with airlines, airport concessions, construction companies, freight   handlers and many other service providers at Chicago’s airports.

The CDA will provide on-site support to assist residents in applying for jobs, including IT assistance for online applications and an interview area for employers to speak with applicants. In partnership with CISCO (Construction Industry Service Corporation), the union will host a workshop with information on how to obtain an apprenticeship.

This event is the fourth of six citywide career fairs that the CDA will host in 2018 as part of its commitment to ensuring new career opportunities powered by Chicago’s growing airports are afforded to residents from all corners of the city.
