Aviation Mentoring

Supporting Aviation’s Future

jennie santoroJennie Santoro, an AVIATIONPRO 40 Under 40, wrote a very illuminating article urging all in aviation to aid to our/her profession by assisting young professionals to help them navigate their professional growth within the industry, and critical to the aviation community, to develop a strong group of future leaders and experts. Her rational is that in such a dynamic industry career, providing advice to young talent will assure that the leadership of our industry will be as or more capable as aviation’s past. At an Airport Consultants Council, the HNTB architect shared some observations.

Here are the major headings of her talk:

  • Mentoring within an Organization vs. Within an Industry
    • Both internal and external assistance is useful
  • Finding Mentors
    • A key is to seek people with a compatible personality
  • The Importance of Networking
    • Can’t be underestimated and professional industry associations are target rich
  • The Path to Success
    • Mentor guidance on career path goals cited as a BIG +
  • Key Learnings
    • “Mentoring doesn’t always involve just one person but a collection of knowledge passed down from experienced people in the industry. Mentors are an essential part of every successful career.”
