PIA Career Services and You

PIA’s Career Services Department takes a hand-on approach to helping you launch your career.  You will meet one-on-one with your career services coordinator on a regular basis.  This focused attention on YOU will allow us to learn about what you want, so we can give you the best tools for your success, such as:

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

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.

Recently the Hagerstown third semester class had the pleasure to hear from PIA Hagerstown Campus August 2015 graduate Steven Tolley. Mr. Tolley, originally from Hagerstown, MD, now works locally in the General Aviation field. Steven came to the Hagerstown Campus, to congratulate our third semester students for being half way done with the program and also about what the next steps in their journey entail. He spoke about how well Pittsburgh Institute of Aeronautics prepared him for his career in aviation and allowed him to prosper in it. When speaking to Steven he said, “I want them (the students of PIA) to know how lucky they are to have a school that prepares them not only to be a successful A&P, but a school who cares about where they end up and how successful we all (the graduates) have become.” Good luck in your future endeavors Steven!
