Last Friday, we hosted our second annual Aviation Career Day. The event was a huge success with over 200 guests attending, including students, alumni, and industry professionals. During the event, students had the opportunity to seek advice and learn from the leading industry professionals and management from airlines through multiple industry-focused panels and a Career Fair session. This year, a diversity panel was also added as part of the main event along with the alumni and industry panel to promote and improve cultural and gender diversity in the aviation industry.
Thank you again to all the alumni and industry professionals for taking time out of their busy schedule to join us. We would also like to thank our valued industry sponsors Air Canada, Chartright Air Group, Great Lakes Helicopter, Jazz Aviation, Porter Airlines, Sunwing Airlines and Waterloo Wellington Flight Centre for supporting us. As well, a special thanks to Dr. Kearns, Dr. Ian McKenzie and all the student volunteers for making this event possible.
