How can I get a job or shadow.....?
Hello. How are you doing? I'm a high school student and the December break is coming up. My dream is to be a commercial pilot actually. I need help finding a holiday job or something similar, perhaps even shadowing a professional.
I hope you're having a great day.
Research local flight schools or airlines: Many flight schools and airlines offer holiday jobs or internships for students. Contact them and inquire about any opportunities they may have.
Connect with alumni: Reach out to alumni from your high school who work in the aviation industry, they might be able to provide you with some leads or opportunities.
Join aviation clubs or organizations: Joining aviation-related clubs or organizations can be a great way to learn about opportunities and make connections in the industry.
Look for volunteer opportunities: Many airports and aviation-related organizations offer volunteer opportunities, this can be a great way to gain experience and make connections in the industry.
Research online: Many of the aviation companies have a website, Look for an "about us" or "careers" page, if you see an open position that interests you and is suitable for a high school student, apply for it.
It's also important to remember that, starting early to gain experience and make connections in the aviation industry can be beneficial. While it may be challenging to find a holiday job or shadowing opportunity, it's important to be persistent and keep exploring different options, as well as be open to the different opportunities that arise.
If that's not cool, look more on the inside for your creativity and talents, one can create and sell one's intellectual work especially at this period.
