Personal Issues / Backgrounds

Every effort will be made to help graduates obtain satisfying gainful employment. Students at one time or another may have had personal issues in their lives that may hinder their ability to get a job and be successful. Due to the nature of the aviation industry there are rules and regulations affecting employment which are beyond our control. Since 9-11 heightened security has led to multiple layers of federal laws regarding criminal backgrounds. If your background includes a Misdemeanor or Felony please discuss it with the Director of Career Services so s/he will be better able to present an accurate employment picture.

Students and graduates need to be aware not all positions desired are open to everyone; factors such as criminal history, credit, current debt to income ratio and bankruptcy at times play a role in the employers’ decision making process. Every effort will be made to help the student explore alternative employment opportunities or ways to legally remedy their individual situation.
