Title: HR Cadet Pilot Recruiter
How long have you worked for PSA? I have been with PSA for six months.
How long have you been in the airline industry? PSA has given me my first opportunity in the airline industry.
Give us a brief overview of what you do: As an HR Cadet Pilot Recruiter, my role is to travel to our partnered schools across the nation and provide information to students about our Cadet Program. In addition to this, I plan and coordinate events at our partnered schools and assist with the strategy behind our Cadet Program.
What is one of the biggest challenges of your job? One of the biggest challenges of my job would be overcoming challenges with technology. Throughout the recruiting process, there are many stages in which we like to track candidates. With this comes many different systems that we use that may not sync, which can make tracking difficult.
How many roles have you had at PSA? Which is your favorite? I have only held one role with PSA.
Where’s your favorite place you have traveled? I have had the opportunity to travel to many places as a recruiter. As much as I would love to say Dayton, OH is my favorite, I will have to say Salt Lake City, UT is the best! The scenery was beautiful and, oddly, their jambalaya was delicious.
What are some of your hobbies? When I am not working, I enjoy hanging out with my wonderful fiancé Alicia and our dog Max. We enjoy spending time with our families, friends, taking hikes and traveling anytime we get the chance.
What do you love about working for PSA? I really enjoy working with members from our recruiting team, our pilot group and the opportunity to travel to different schools and learn more about different areas.
Would you recommend PSA and why? Of course! First off, PSA is a growing company in a robust industry. Being with this company provides many opportunities to learn and try something new. Not many companies allow you to use your creativity and PSA certainly does.
What did you do before coming to PSA? Prior to PSA I was a Project Coordinator for Wells Fargo Securities Campus Recruiting team supporting the Investment Banking and Sales Trading Internship Program.
Tell us something about your role that most people don’t know: Most people only see the surface of what we do in Recruiting. However, a lot goes on behind the scenes such as planning, coordinating and data reporting.
What has been the most rewarding part of your job? The most rewarding part of my job is knowing that I have helped a young student who has aspired to be a pilot for as long as they can remember put their right foot forward and get them started on their pathway to the cockpit at PSA by joining our Cadet Program.
Tell us something no one knows about you: Prior to my job at PSA I had only flown a handful of times, now I think it’s safe to say I have caught the wanderlust bug!
