Orlando Grads Hired for the Holidays at HAECO

Posted by on Feb 15, 2016

In mid-December, HAECO (formerly TIMCO), one of the largest Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) services providers in the U.S., visited AIM Orlando to give a career presentation, interview graduates for mechanic positions, and offer jobs on the spot. They were hiring for more than a dozen positions in their Lake City, FL and Greensboro, NC locations.

A total of 12 graduates and 3 pending graduates attended the presentation. Eleven of the graduates stayed after the presentation to be interviewed for structural mechanic and general A&P mechanic positions. Not only did the full-time positions offer full benefits, but also incentives such as relocation assistance. All 11 graduates they interviewed were offered full-time employment, with start dates landing just after the end of the holidays. To just about every graduate, that was the best holiday gift they could have imagined.

We are all so proud of our graduates who continue to make a positive impact with leading aviation employers in the country. Way to go AIM Grads! Never forget to #AIM4Success!

The students at AIM Orlando were checking their school calendar, counting the days left before their winter break; a time of no classes, no books, no projects and a time of traditional cultural and family celebrations. At AIM Orlando, the sounds of power tools were slowly being replaced with sounds of melodies and songs.

Personal Data Privacy and You

In the expanding online and digitally connected world, privacy is gaining increasing attention. While the average American is beginning to recognize and understand the true value of their personal information, people also continue to express concerns about their privacy online.

Lately, a slew of research has been released about how the public perceives the digital economy’s impact on their privacy. According to research conducted by the Pew Research Center, 91% of Americans believe they’ve lost control over how their personal information is collected and used by companies, and 64% believe the government needs to do more to regulate the way advertisers use our personal information.  In light of the recent Sony and Anthem hack, the latter affecting upwards of 80 million Americans, personal information security should be a concern for us all. Just ask those folks who had their credit card information stolen after shopping at Target…
