Delayed by Hurricane Ian’s approach last month, TPA’s much-anticipated Airport-Wide Hiring Day will now be held Tuesday, Oct. 25.  The event will take place from 9 a.m. to noon at the Airport’s Main Terminal Event Space (Level 3, between the shuttles for Airsides E and F).

Twenty four companies at TPA are looking to fill more than 400 jobs at the upcoming event, which was originally scheduled for Sept. 27 but was postponed due to the storm.

Representatives from FedEx, Airborne, the Transportation Security Administration, Southwest Airlines and others will be in attendance meeting applicants and accepting applications.

The Hillsborough County Aviation Authority, which operates Tampa International Airport, will also be looking to fill open positions across several departments.

“We saw a lot of interest in this Hiring Day event, which we postponed last month in the interest of safety for our workers and passengers,” said TPA’s Executive Vice President of Operations and Customer Service John Tiliacos. “We’re pleased to still be able to help our partners hire talented employees ahead of the busy holiday travel season.”

Hiring managers suggest bringing multiple copies of your resume and two forms of ID, in case you are offered a job at the event. Parking will be validated for those parking in the Long Term Parking Garage.

More than 500 candidates attended the last Airport-wide Hiring Day on Feb. 15, with companies offering dozens of jobs on the spot.
