The second in a series of workshops preparing students and job seekers for the October 5-9 Pathways to Aviation Career Symposium provided tips to making contact with with industry leaders.
What happens when you make contact either verbally or via chat on the online video sessions and the industry leader asks for your information? What do you send?
How you respond could set the tone for the professional relationship. Being prepared for the request means that you’ll have your resume looking sharp and your LinkedIn profile (if you have one) just as ready to be viewed.
This call provided basic steps to becoming prepared to make contact with industry leaders at the Career Symposium. The same steps apply to any on-site or virtual call (e.g. class presentation, networking function, career fair), where you reach out to speakers and key representatives. Below is a video of Pete providing the tips on yesterday’s Zoom workshop.
