Career Placement

Career Placement

PIA’s Placement Department works diligently to maintain an extensive, nationwide network of employers in the areas of manufacturing, electronics, maintenance, and transportation. The school regularly hosts company representatives on campus for recruiting presentations and job interviews that are open to PIA students and graduates only.

If there is one thing that stands out about PIA’s Aviation and Technology programs, it is the wide array of career opportunities available to the programs’ graduates. PIA graduates are often described as having “transferable skills.” That is, they possess the technical background to pursue careers in a variety of industries.

PIA maintains an Industry Advisory Committee which makes recommendations about how PIA’s programs can best educate students to enter today’s workforce. Made up of representatives from companies across the country, the Advisory Committee is just one way that PIA strives to maintain superior instruction in precisely the areas that employers demand.

Prospective students interested in learning more about the specific opportunities open to PIA graduates can contact PIA’s Admissions Department at 1-800-444-1440 or 412-346-2100.

In addition, we encourage you to visit the  PIA CAREER PLACEMENT  page on current job postings and other placement updates.
