by CarlValeri on November 27, 2015

IMG_8034Welcome to episode 99 of the podcast where we give you an inside look at many aerospace careers and help you achieve your career goals. Joining me today is Paul Grieco, scholarship analyst and interview prep consultant; and Tom Wachowski host of The Private Jet Podcast. In this episode, we discuss Recurrent Training,  Living on starting pay, and Flying During the Holidays.

Recently I have had the pleasure of coaching some very interesting and motivated aerospace professionals and students. One thing I have been hearing from you is that we have been providing some much needed and nuanced information as to the lives of pilots, flight attendants, engineers, and other professionals. To help you decide if an aerospace career is for you and motivate you during the holidays, I want to talk about working during this holiday season.

Today we are recording this on the eve of Thanksgiving in the United States, so for all of those listening that celebrate this holiday, Happy Thanksgiving!  This is a holiday we give thanks and I want to start off with giving thanks for having you as a listener and for the amazing team we have here at Aviation Careers Podcast!

Today we discuss:

  • Preparing recurrent training.
  • Interview Preparation for Cape Air and CommutAir
  • Scholarship of the week
  • Flying during the holidays.
