Freeport High School Students Explore Airport Employment Opportunities

Freeport High School juniors and seniors had the benefit of hearing firsthand about the vast array of employment opportunities available at John F. Kennedy International Airport. This program was another opportunity for students to explore various career pathways.

Both Verdia Noel, director of Business Development NY at the Council for Airport Opportunities of New York and New Jersey and Aaron Miner, outreach specialist, spoke with students to present information regarding the various employment opportunities at the airport. During their presentations, students learned about entry level career opportunities available immediately upon graduation, as well as opportunities available after students graduate from either college or trade schools. These include positions in catering, customer service, food service, mechanics, retail, security, flight attending, the science and medical fields and more.  The application process was also presented.

Jose Cuevas, senior manager, Commercial Customer Experience and Commercial Department, JFK International Air Terminal, facilitated a presentation titled, “Pathways to Consider for Employment Opportunities.” He discussed his background, career path, how each of his career experiences led to the next, as well as the different career pathways that are available to today’s students. While sharing his journey, he shared additional inspiring stories.  The program provided the students with a wealth of information.
