  • Job Opportunities
  • Career Fairs
  • On-Campus Recruiting
  • Career Decision Counseling
  • Resume Writing

That sounds pretty great, but we don’t stop there.  We keep track of industry trends, such as salary and wage fluctuations to make sure you have the best understanding of the market and what you can expect. We are continuously networking and expanding our efforts, striving for the absolute best service for our students and alumni.

While the overwhelming demand for skilled aircraft technicians continues to be the hot topic within the aviation industry, your skill-set does not limit you to this profession. Our strong reputation within the industry inherently gravitates these employers to PIA, but our Career Services Department is continuously reaching out and educating other industries of the unique diversity of skills certified aviation technicians are capable of performing.
