Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (SEDS) Job Fair
July 15 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
NewSpace 2019 is adding a new event to this year’s conference thanks to a generous partnership between Space Frontier Foundation and the City of Kent – an aerospace job fair for college students to bring interest into this growing hub of space industry. The City of Kent is sponsoring 50 students from the organization ‘Students for the Exploration and Development of Space’ (SEDS) to travel to Washington and attend both the job fair highlighting local companies as well as the NewSpace conference. The city’s grant will enable students from less represented regions across the country to visit and bring their talent, education, and passion to Greater Seattle Area while exploring opportunities they may not have otherwise known about due to travel limitations. This job fair is a joint effort to encourage the growth already happening in the aerospace and technology fields, and promote future leaders of the space industry to join in one of the fastest growing regions for career potential.
Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (SEDS) is a 501(c)3 non-profit that empowers young people to participate and make an impact in space exploration. SEDS helps students develop their technical and leadership skills by providing opportunities to manage and participate in national projects as well as to attend conferences, publish their work, and develop their professional network, in order to help students become more effective in their present and future careers in industry, academia, government, and education.
