Women in Aviation Conference: Itís For Men, Too!

By March 22, 2012

Follow me on:

There's no better place for an aviation enthusiast to go this spring than to the 23rd Annual International Women in Aviation Conference, to be held March 8-10 in Dallas. People (notice I said people, not women) from all over the world attend this conference for education sessions, industry exposure, networking and scholarships. Whether you're a student, business owner, pilot, mechanic, educator, writer, or a lobbyist, you are sure to benefit from the conference somehow.

Education Sessions
The education sessions aren't just about flying. They are about safety, work/family life, how to grow your business, how to become a mechanic, aviation history, and leadership. OK, maybe there are also a few sessions about flying, too. Industry representatives are on hand to host panel discussions, training seminars, and information sessions.

Industry Exposure
If you're a student, recent graduate, job-seeker or company representative, the exhibit hall is a great place to get your foot in the door. Treat the exhibit like a job fair; there are always companies hiring.

If women know anything, it's the value of chatting, right? There's no better place to network than at a conference. I know this firsthand; I attended an earlier conference and was offered interviews, jobs, advice, and made lots of connections just by showing up! Read this helpful information about networking before you go.

By far, my favorite part of the conference is seeing fellow peers getting free money! From business scholarships to Boeing 737 Type Ratings, there are scholarships for everyone. It's so much fun to see people walking away with an attainable piece of their dream in their hands.

If you're an aviation enthusiast, the Women in Aviation Conference is the place to be! Network with industry peers, find a job, interview job candidates, learn about other companies, grab a scholarship or two, and of course, mingle!

See you there!
