A unique opportunity for aviation and business executives to talk about careers with high school and college students.
Pathways to Aviation and the Truckee Tahoe Airport are hosting a networking workshop on Thursday, April 19 from 5-7pm at the airport’s terminal building. All high school and college students, as well as aviation and local business leaders, are invited to attend.
The event is the culmination of a popular aviation career mentoring workshop series, where students gained great understanding of their hard and soft skills, developed ways to articulate skills onto resumes, and learned how to engage in meaningful face-to-face conversations. The students will be ready to meet with aviation and business executives to showcase what they’ve learned, describe their career aspirations, and build new relationships.
The role which professionals play in the event will be significant. They will provide feedback, suggestions for improvement, and career advice to the students. Those seeking to fill internships and jobs will find career-ready young talent.
“The new career mentoring program has attracted 75 students who are far more career-ready than their counterparts, whether or not they choose to pursue careers in aviation,” says Eric Henry, board chair for Pathways to Aviation. “Aviation and non-industry professionals will meet outstanding young leaders who are equipped with valuable career skills.”
There’s no requirement to register for the free event, but RSVPs are encouraged. Event details and a RSVP form can be found at www.pathwaystoaviation.org/KTRKnetworking2018 or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
