“Join us at the 2024 cruise job fair and meet with employers hiring for part-time and full-time positions at Pier 66 and Pier 91 cruise terminals,” states the event page.

“Positions are available at $20–25 per hour from mid-April to October. Interviews will be held on site. Parking is free.”

As well, they add that employers will work with high school and college students and teachers to accommodate academic schedules.

According to The Port of Seattle, the 2023 cruise season hosted 291 cruises with a record 1,778,193 revenue passengers.

“Cruise ships provide a much-needed economic stimulus for area businesses, especially those in downtown Seattle,” states the Port of Seattle. “It is estimated that each homeported cruise ship at berth brings $4 million in economic impact to the region, with a total of nearly $900 million in economic impact over the course of a cruise season. Most cruise passengers stay a couple of days in Seattle before or after their Alaska cruise. Over 20 percent of cruise passengers check their bags early to the airport so they can spend the day enjoying the Seattle area before boarding their flights home.”

Looking to join this exciting industry? Be sure to mark the March 16 date on your calendars!

And good luck!
