CGTC Aircraft Structural Technology Graduates Find Employment with Gulfstream

November 15, 2017

Warner Robins, Ga. – An urgent hiring need recently brought Gulfstream Aerospace to Central Georgia Technical College (CGTC) and after interviews with candidates in the Aircraft Structural Technology (AST) program, seven students have earned employment.

Elvis Nguyen, Hunter Williams, Colton McKinney, each earned employment with the aircraft manufacturing company earlier this year, and now, after return recruitment efforts of the company, Ryan Banks, Spencer Daniely, Major Lynwood, and Dexter Osayamah will start in January.

Kelly Services, one of Gulfstream Aerospace’s preferred staffing agencies, will pay each of the three most recent hires over $17 per hour. The company has expressed interest in hiring other graduates in the spring.

As Paul Odea, program chair of Aircraft Structural Technology, said of all the recent hires of program students within the calendar year, “every graduate who wants a job can find one pretty quickly right now,” adding that meeting the requirements of the program, graduating, and actively pursuing the available opportunities is essential.

Each of the new hires graduated with Aircraft Structural Technology diploma.
Odea said career opportunities in AST abound; the program currently has 13 Pathways Interns at Robins Air Force Base. These students work 32 hours per week and attend a minimum of 6 credit hours each semester. Pathways Interns can take up to two years to complete their diploma if need be from the date of hire.
