Throughout the school year, National Aviation Academy (NAA) regularly offers students numerous career services opportunities to directly network with industry professionals and find employment.

NAA held our most recent career fair in Tampa Bay on May 12, 2022. Students and alumni networked with the 40 companies in attendance, which included esteemed industry leaders such as Embraer, Boeing, Delta, and American Airlines!

Aviation Needs Technicians!

According to the Boeing 2021 Pilot and Technician Outlook, 626,000 aviation technicians are needed worldwide. The demand for aviation maintenance work was apparent as companies were eager to interview and hire new talent. As the industry accelerates recovery from the pandemic, demand for skilled technicians rises!

Interviews and Networking

The career fair was an incredible networking opportunity for many students! With 40 company representatives in attendance, students were able to hone their interviewing skills and expand their professional networks. Employers conducted at least 173 interviews during the event, with several more planned afterward. Over 90 job offers were presented to students as well! Several employers are even planning return trips to National Aviation Academy.

At every point of training, students should be prepared to navigate professional networking settings like our career fairs. Check out our guide with helpful career tips for aviation mechanics in training!
