Everett Community College’s Advanced Manufacturing Training and Education Center (AMTEC) hosted its first in-person event in more than two years on May 24th, a successful hiring event that included twenty local employers, all actively hiring. The skills taught at AMTEC are in demand, with employers hiring students on the spot from mechatronics, composites, precision machining, welding, and engineering technology programs. 

Employers included Boeing, Travis Industries, Janicki, Safran, Ironworkers Local 86, Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, Vigor, Systima, Senior Aerospace AMT, Seacast, OSW, Soundair, Systems Interface, Freefly Systems, Snohomish County PUD, Helion Energy, Nichols Brothers/Everett Ship Repair, Royell Manufacturing, and Hexcel, many of whom were interviewed and hired during that day at AMTEC. 

Two employers brought EvCC graduates along to share with students their experiences. Several employers noted that they identified multiple candidates to hire and look forward to the next in-person event at AMTEC. Staff are planning for that event now.
