Crowds thronged the first day of the OneAviation Career fair on 27 May 2022. With about 2,000 jobs available and interviews conducted on-site, it was a vibrant start to this 2-day event organised by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore and supported by AAIS, amongst other organisations.
Senior Minister of State (Transport) and Dy Sec Gen of NTUC, Chee Hong Tat, gave an upbeat opening speech to kick off the career fair. He spoke of how Changi Airport passenger traffic had reached 50% of pre-COVID levels sooner than expected and predicted that the industry would recover 80-90% of its employment levels by end of year.
On day 2, AAIS MC member Desmond Goh moderated a panel discussion on “The Aviation Engineer: Powering Our Future”, featuring industry professionals from Safran Electronics & Defense, SIA Engineering Company, Singapore Aero Engine Services, and Changi Airport Group. The career fair also featured other talks on topics such as aviation sustainability, aviation engineering and technology frontiers.
