Our New Year’s Resolution was to educate, engage and empower future pilots, and we’re sticking to it! As we grow our existing outreach programs to meet qualified candidates across the country, we’re adding an innovative approach to determine what aviators value in their job search: the Smart 16 bracket.
ExpressJet is hosting our own version of the March Madness Tournament as a fun way for you to share what is most important to you when determining where to begin your aviation career. We’ve come up with 16 of the best reasons ExpressJet is a great place to start your career, and we want to know which reason matters most to YOU!
Two ways to play:
- Online: Visit tinyurl.com/smart16 and “vote” on each matchup to choose which company advantage is most important to you.
- In Person: You can download the bracket at flysmartchoice.com, then snap a photo of your completed bracket (or scan the document) and email it to email@example.com with March Madness as the subject line. Please include your full name.
Rules: Anyone is welcome to enter, but you must be 18 to win. Current ExpressJet employees are encouraged to play, but are not eligible to receive prize packages. Two grand prize winners will be selected randomly from all completed entries.
Tournament Timeline: The Smart 16 campaign will run from Feb. 2-March 30, and brackets can be completed at any time during the campaign to be entered to win.
We will host a series of eight “games” on Tuesdays and Thursdays in March. The topic with the most votes at the time of its matchup will be named the “winner.” The tournament schedule is below:
|Thursday, Mar. 3||Training –or– Recognition|
|Tuesday, Mar. 8||Culture –or– Industry-Leading Technology|
|Thursday, Mar. 10||Stability –or– Diversity|
|Tuesday, Mar. 15||Performance –or– Flexible Schedule|
|Thursday, Mar. 17||Quality of Life –or– Flying for the Big 3|
|Tuesday, Mar. 22||Work Rules –or– Commuting Policies|

ExpressJet’s pilot recruiting team will use the results to share more information relevant to the topics players are most interested in. Share your vote on your personal social media accounts to encourage your family and friends to participate. Good luck!
