2019 MAC Public Safety Job Fair

Are you interested in a possible career in Public Safety? Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a police officer, fire fighter or a 911 dispatcher at the Minneapolis - St. Paul International Airport? How about serving as a traffic control agent or providing administrative support? If you answered yes, come and learn more about potential career opportunities in these and other areas.

The Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) will be hosting a Public Safety Job Fair on Saturday, September 28, 2019 from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm. The event will be held at the MAC General Office Building at 6040 28th Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN 55450.

The job fair is a great way for you to connect and network with representatives from MAC's Public Safety and Human Resources departments. You will have the opportunity to learn more about positions that are necessary to keep the airport community safe. Information about future openings, as well as current vacancies, will be available. Additionally, state of the art equipment used in the performance of these jobs will be on display.

There are bus routes available to the MAC from the VA, Southdale and downtown. To plan your route, please call 612.373.333 and select #2. Questions regarding the job fair can be directed to Lori Holt at or 612.725.6116.

Hope to see you there! • This is a free job fair - no registration necessary.
