Aviation enthusiasts across the nation will gather soon in OshKosh, Wisconsin to participate in the World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration, EAA Airventure OshKosh. At OshKosh aviation hobbyists, current pilots and aspiring pilots will have the opportunity to attend airshows and exhibits. Attendees can network with aviation professionals at airline booths in the Education and Career Center. Read more to learn how pilots can prepare for OshKosh, and how to connect with GoJet recruiters at booth C29, or in exclusive events.
If you’ve never attended OshKosh before you’re in for a treat! Whether you’re a brand-new pilot or a seasoned veteran pilot, there’s something for everyone at OshKosh.
“I love that OshKosh gives aviation enthusiasts the opportunity to come and talk to professionals within the airline industry,” Zenia Bharucha, Manager of GoJet’s Pilot Recruiting said. “New pilots fresh from training, those considering a pilot career and individuals seeing airline pilots for the first time get to discuss challenges they’ve faced and where they aspire to go. New and aspirant pilots also have the chance to hear from veteran pilots on the experiences that have helped them become the pilots that they are today.”
Pilot candidates are encouraged to bring their resumes and to dress professionally. Recruiters also suggest that pilots do their research, read online reviews, and study interview questions.
“The idea is to come prepared so that you can impress pilot recruiters and potentially leave with a job offer in hand, or a promising lead for future job openings.” Zenia said.
Interested GoJet candidates can expect to learn more about the company’s many programs, which include the Wingman Program—a program designed to provide student pilots with the opportunity to build flight hours and receive tuition reimbursement, while interning with GoJet. Additionally, GoJet offers unique pathway programs which include the Mountain Air Cargo (MAC) to GoJet Fast Track, GoJet to Spirit Pathway Program, and the Atlas Guaranteed Interview Program. Moreover, GoJet offers an array of options for military pilot transition, flight instructors, and more. Once on property, GoJet pilots may also earn a $10,000 bonus for each successful pilot candidate they refer to the company.
During OshKosh, GoJet will provide giveaways and host events to give pilot candidates an inside look into the company.
“We’re going to give away amazing swag and two aircraft models of the CRJ,” Zenia said. “You can also bring your resume or drop off your contact card to be included in our drawings. If you’re a social media savvy individual, we encourage you to use our Snapchat filter by our Booth C29 or in the career center.” Zenia said.
You can also indulge in delicious food at GoJet’s invite-only BBQ. To inquire about receiving an invitation, stop by Booth C29 either Monday or Tuesday to speak with a pilot recruiter.
