EKU Aviation Hosts Annual Career Day

2016 EKU Aviation Career Day students

On Friday, April 14, EKU Aviation students will be dressed to impress and ready to interview.

This year, 2017, is the Second Annual EKU Aviation Career Day - nearly a full day of interviews and networking with aviation industry professionals from around the country.

Last year, students were interviewed by ExpressJet Airline recruiters for First Officer pilot jobs, which really highlighted EKU Aviation achievements and successes. EKU's partnership with regional airlines gives professional flight students the opportunity to begin airline interviews during their junior year. These carriers include airlines such as ExpressJet and Envoy Airlines. Many have “pathway programs” to not only offer guaranteed interviews, but to also offer guaranteed jobs after graduation.

Aerospace Management students will also have the opportunity to network with representatives seeking their talents in aviation management areas.

While open to all EKU Aviation majors, the day will also satisfy the BTS 400 - College to Careers Seminar requirement for graduating seniors. Graduating seniors must register for the departmental BTS 400 session in EKU Direct using CRN 24356.

The event is scheduled from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 pm on EKU's main campus. For more information on how to participate, contact Joe Marthaler at
