Boeing hiring fair produces job offers for SEATech students

This week representatives from The Boeing Company held a hiring fair at SEATech’s Advanced Manufacturing & Welding Technology program. Students received an overview of current jobs available at Boeing related to manufacturing. Seniors were allowed to conduct an interview as part of the process and eight were offered positions on the spot. These positions start at $20 to $21 per hour with the potential to earn nearly $50 per hour within six years. Instructor James Polson said Boeing also offers a full benefits package including retirement. He said the company is looking to 4000 new employees to keep pace with the demands of its busy production schedule. 

“The students will receive their official offers in about a week that detail each position's compensation,” said Polson. “Each student was offered multiple positions, and I believe all of my seniors will eventually be offered jobs.”

The Boeing Company is an American multinational corporation that designs, manufactures, and sells airplanes, rotorcraft, rockets, satellites, telecommunications equipment, and missiles worldwide. SEATech has had a relationship with Boeing for several years and continues to regularly produce potential employees for the company.
