Career Fair at Fort Drum

On behalf of the NFTA, John Dembik, Superintendent of Bus Maintenance, attended  the Soldier for Life Transition Assistance Program Career Fair on February 1 at the Mountain Warfare Simulation Complex in Fort Drum.  There were approximately 80 vendors which included a vast array of employers, vocational trade schools and colleges.   

In attendance was a variety of military personnel seeking employment or career direction, and many stopped by the NFTA table to ask about job opportunities and public transportation in general.  Some inquired about apprenticeships and internships that may be in  place also.
While there, John conducted a facebook live video which included information about NFTA Metro job opportunities and company benefits.  In addition, many event placement counselors and transition readiness liaisons stopped by the table and asked about recruitment packages and videos. It was a great networking event as well as another opportunity to spread the word about the jobs the NFTA has to offer. 

The event proved to be a great success and follow-up will be conducted by representatives from the NFTA within the next few weeks.
