Career Fair – Pittsburgh Campus 2020Edward Molek
PIA Pittsburgh hosted its annual Career Fair on Wednesday, February 19th. Over 30 organizations were available for soon-to-be graduates and current students to meet with. As the aviation industry continues to seek qualified individuals to fill technician roles, airlines and aviation companies dominated the fair and discussed employment opportunities with students. In addition, organizations like Advanced Acoustics Concepts, Gulfstream Aerospace, and Micron looked for expertise from students in the Aviation Electronics field.
Micron, an event sponsor of the 2020 Career Fair, was available on campus for several days preceding and following the event. In addition to a presentation to 6th and 7th quarter students in both programs, the company conducted several interviews with interested candidates. SkyWest was also able to speak with students prior to the fair, discussing the value they place on a positive team environment, stating, “Together, we can run an airline.”
PIA is thankful for the participation of all the companies who were able to attend the Career Fair. A special thanks must be extended to our event sponsors, who help make such an event possible for students at PIA. We look forward to seeing all the participants again next year!
