Aviation Outlook Day

Event Information

Friday, April 1, 2022 from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.

Aviation Education Center - 237 Helmer Rd. N, Battle Creek, MI 49037 

Join us for Western Michigan University's aviation career fair- Aviation Outlook Day! The purpose of Aviation Outlook Day is to help students connect with aviation organizations and professionals, discuss career options, and learn about industry needs.

Employers will be provided an opportunity to speak with students about their organizations, answer questions and promote available internships and career pathways. Students looking to secure an internship or explore professional opportunities are encouraged to dress professionally and bring updated resumes.

To help companies maximize their engagement and involvement with students, Aviation Outlook Day will be held in partnership with our Annual Golf Outing, in the hopes that employers will be able to join us for both events! The Annual Golf Outing will be held on Monday, June 6th, 2022. Companies that sponsor at the Lunch level or above at the Golf Outing will receive a complimentary booth at Aviation Outlook Day.  This offer does not include Aviation Outlook Day sponsorship.

The event is free and open to the public. Wear professional business attire and bring copies of your resume.
