2012-10-05 · By Editor
As a direct result of the Airport Modernization Program, the concessionaire for Long Beach Airport (LGB) will recruit new employees from October 15 through 20 at the Long Beach Airport Marriott Hotel, 4700 Airport Plaza Dr. The job fair will be open daily from 9 am to 6 pm, and aims to fill more than 110 new permanent jobs in retail and food service.
“These jobs will help local businesses grow, and help support the Airport’s role as a major economic engine for Long Beach and the region,” Mayor Bob Foster said.
Jobseekers should be prepared for on-the-spot interviews and are encouraged to dress professionally and bring resumes. New hires may need to start as early as mid-November.
“We are so pleased to have the opportunity to benefit the community by connecting people to much needed local jobs. We will continue to make your Long Beach Airport more valuable to the community by building its economic impact as well as improving the quality of the travel experience,” said Director Mario Rodriguez. “Furthermore, this job fair should attract local candidates from the City of Long Beach who will make the LGB experience even better.”
The Long Beach Airport Area Complex is directly responsible for supporting nearly 18,000 local jobs, or nine percent of all jobs in Long Beach, according to a recent study conducted by California State University, Long Beach.
The Airport Modernization Plan includes a new Passenger Concourse and the Historic Terminal Modernization.
