HAI is a great experience. I’d dress in business casual attire and take some resumes to leave at the job fair. You’ll find that the job fair isn’t anything more than standing in line, dropping off a resume and hoping to get to speak with a representative of the company you’re interested in for about 5-10 minutes.

If I were you I’d look at attending one of the professional pilot courses that are offered. You’ll find a room full of experienced pilots who I’m sure wouldn’t mind talking with you about their side of the industry. I wouldn’t just pick any course because they are pricey. I’d attend a course that I see myself utilizing in my day to day operations as well as in the future, when I meet the necessary requirements for the position I truly want.

Networking, it’s a great tool, but don’t badger. Introduce yourself and listen. You’ll find that if you listen more than speak people will tend to start asking you question. This will allow for a more fluid conversation rather than you divulging everything about yourself up front. Remember, most pilots are there to see the new equipment, meet up with friends and all in all have a great time. Since you’re only there for a day, enjoy the show, attend a class, mingle, and grab as much free stuff as you can. Good luck!
