Did you Know?

Lori Pederson
Did You Know?

Everybody who has ever been into the Aerospace Campus library knows Lori Pederson.  She is the ATC Library Coordinator who is on hand almost everyday to sign out books, answer questions and help find resources.

But what you may not know, is that Lori also sources many of the job postings seen on this page!  It's a great help to students who are looking at a career after school, and for alumni who may be thinking about the next step on their chosen career path.  In fact, Lori mentions that, "these postings help students and alumni more than you would think.  They help solidify a career plan, let you know where in the country the offers the most opportunities, what the job titles are, and in some cases, even the salary."

With that great advice in mind, we encourage you to take a few moments and look at some past postings to see what positions appeal to you, what steps you might need to get there and where you see yourself fitting in.

Thank you Lori, for continuing to support the Aviation Operations students in so many ways.
