The Women Building SEPTA - Trades & Technical Career Fair will be held on June 22, 2019 at SEPTA Headquarters, 1234 Market Street, Philadelphia.

This exciting event will have two focal points:

1. For women who are currently working within the skilled trade/technical fields, this is an opportunity to quickly pre-qualify for existing vacancies.

However, the Signal and Power Trainee positions will accept one year of relevant technical education or military training in lieu of work experience.

2. For women who are interested in starting careers in the skilled trade/technical fields, we will provide useful information on potential career paths, training school information and one-on-one meetings with managers to discuss careers at SEPTA.
