Guardians of the Gateway workshop to help veterans seek job opportunities at ports

The Port of Tacoma, the Port of Seattle and The Northwest Seaport Alliance are pleased to partner with U.S. Customs and Border Protection to offer veterans expedited and preferential hiring, as well as locational preference to ensure a job right here in Puget Sound.

Jobs at our seaports and airport offer numerous opportunities for veterans and transitional military personnel, from police teams such as K-9, dive team, bomb disposal and marine patrol to container terminal security officers.

The Guardians of the Gateway Veterans Career Workshop will be held on Nov. 15, from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Beijing Room at the Conference Center at Sea-Tac International Airport at 17801 International Blvd. in SeaTac.

The free workshop will include employer representatives who will brief veterans and transitioning military personnel on application processes, salaries and benefits, open positions and career growth opportunities.
