Rachele Johnson, talent acquisition specialist and Eric Wagner, Tech Ops program manager and outreach and recruitment specialist, came to Vaughn College to speak to Aviation Training Institute students about future employment opportunities with Endeavor Air.

Aviation maintenance technicians are in high demand these days with Boeing forecasting the industry will need as many as 648,000 new technicians by 2036. Endeavor’s presentation focused on the process for securing employment with Endeavor Air, including the interview process and time frame for gaining employment.

Johnson and Wagner regularly come to the New York area to interview candidates for both John F. Kennedy International and LaGuardia Airports. They reviewed a variety of job titles, the associated benefits and the opportunity to be fast-tracked to Delta Air Lines employment after two years.

When students asked about their competition for these types of jobs, Johnson noted “We hire a lot of graduates from Vaughn with their airframe and powerplant certificates because the College offers a good program and we are very familiar with it,” said Johnson. “We have been very successful with our hires from Vaughn so you have a leg up in the hiring process.”

Endeavor Air is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Delta Air Lines operating the world’s largest fleet of CRJ-900 aircraft to more than 130 cities across North America.
