LAX AIRPORT - Success!
LAX Edge4Vets workshop series was expanded this spring!
"Mentors" from airport companies and LAWA departments worked with vets (left) to help them translate their military strengths to earn jobs at LAX during a workshop April 24, 2018. The program was so successful in 2017 that LAWA led an expansion this spring, along with private companies, including airline carriers, retail, concessions, security - even construction companies. Check back soon for details on the next round of expansion.
