Engineers, inspectors and aircraft technicians do mock job interviews with students in ongoing STEM education effort

MIAMI, FL – Sophomores and juniors from Miami Central High School had a chance to experience the job seeker’s “hot seat” when they visited AAR Aircraft Services on Friday morning for a career day tour and job skills workshop.

Job interviews were conducted by engineers, aircraft technicians and inspectors from the local AAR team, who also gave students a tutorial on facility operations and shared stories about their personal journeys into aviation careers. The opportunity to meet and interview with aviation industry professionals will prepare students for upcoming summer internships that, for many of them, will be their first job experience.

Getting students excited about and prepared for aviation careers is a long-term goal for AAR, which is working to close the gap between business needs and education.

“High schools are increasingly focusing their career education efforts on technology,” says AAR Senior Human Resources Manager Vicky Sokolowski. “We want students to know that aviation is a growing industry and that there are career opportunities available to them.”

Since 2011, AAR has teamed up with City Year Miami, a nonprofit educational intervention program, to introduce students, teachers and guidance counselors at Miami Central High School to the aviation sector, and provide tutoring in reading and math.
