The third annual Aviation Career Week was an incredible success. In past years, the week featured on-site networking events, where students and job seekers would interface with professionals in face-to-face discussions. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, we were forced to cancel these live events. However, it proved to be a win!
Throughout the week, we flooded our social media accounts with announcements, recognitions, job postings, career tips, and promotions. We also hosted four online workshops, featuring aviation and aerospace executives. The combination of messaging and events attracted students, job seekers, mentors, and recruiters from nine states and three non-US countries. As such, we transitioned from a local reach, mostly in northern Nevada and northern California, to an organization with an international presence.
The week was made stellar thanks to the participation of our board members, mentors, and panelist. Special thanks to the executives representing Click Bond, Sierra Nevada Corporation, American Airlines, United Airlines, Dassault Falcon Jet, GA Telesis, and JSfirm.com. Their leadership, mentoring, and advice were spectacular.
The fun doesn’t end here. Our weekly Career Conversations Workshop resumes on Wednesday, June 3 at a new time. To accommodate the multiple time zones, we’ll conduct the online workshop at 4:00pm PST. Go to our mainpage to RSVP for the workshop. The topic is Your Career Plan.
