    Futures in Aerospace

    It's a great time to pursue a career in aviation!

     

     

    Flight Plans

    We're hosting aerospace career workshops in three locations for high school and college students. They each feature presentations by aviation executives, who share their experiences, descriptions of their company specialties, overviews of hiring practices, and career-focused advice. In addition to the presentations, students receive a specially-designed career readiness workbook and career planning tips, such as skills identification, resume writing, interviewing tips, and networking instruction. Students will be prepared to meet aviation executives and recruiters at the large networking receptions (May), with resumes in hand, creating strong first impressions, conducting meaningful dialogues, and taking strategic next steps. If all goes well for the students, they’ll finish the 2019 program with job shadowing, internship, and part and full-time employment commitments.

    The 2019 program has received initial praise from two school districts, the State of Nevada Department of Education, and many aviation executives. The 2019 Futures in Aerospace workshops take place at the Reno-Tahoe International Airport, Truckee Tahoe Airport, and Carson Airport. Click the links to learn more about each!

    Aviation Career Week

    In response to the success of our Flight Plans and the overall Futures in Aerospace program, a special Aviation Career Week will culminate the Spring 2019 Flight Plan workshop series. The week of May 13-17 will be highlighted by news and information, job postings, scholarship awards, and two networking receptions.

    With an anticipated 200 students participating in the program, we seek 200 aviation, business, and community leaders to participate at the various Aviation Career Week receptions. We will showcase the students at these receptions, giving each professional an opportunity to spend time with each student in an exciting networking format.

     

    Sign up - the 2019 flight is boarding!

    If you think the 2017/2018 program was impressive, our 2019 program will reach a new sphere! The pistons are firing toward an extraordinary journey!
