Russo says, “Some recruiters have even come out to visit our school and talk to our students about their company’s employment opportunities.” How Are You Attracting Students? Promoting aviation as a career is an industrywide concern, and the aircraft maintenance schools have to get in front of students to promote the industry as well as their individual schools. “The biggest competitor for students right now is the robust job market,” says CCCC’s Gross. “Very low unemployment means students likely are already working one or two jobs, and giving all that up for 15 months is very challenging.” The school is working to make its program more flexible for potential students by offering housing at the Bridgewater State University campus, and developing a hybrid model of the program where instruction is offered online. At UDC, Russo says, “We utilize social media and community outreach as our primary means of attracting new students, allowing students to see what we do firsthand. Many high school students who have never even considered a career in aviation become inspired after visiting our facility during a field trip.” CAPE COD Community College attracts students of all ages from high school graduates to career changers and retirees who have always wanted to work in aviation.
