Air Serbia takes in Etihad graduates


Air Serbia has celebrated the graduation of nine young Serbians from a career development programme with Etihad Airways. They have now taken managerial posts at Air Serbia. The nine graduates are the first group of Serbians to finish the Etihad Graduate Management Programme (EGMP), a 24 to 30 month-long development course introduced in 2013 with the aim of developing human resources at Air Serbia. The comprehensive course involves four months of foundation level training where participants learn about the airline industry, followed by on-the-job training across key Etihad Airways business areas, before specialising in a particular airline role. Some of the posts taken by the nine graduates include those in the Sales department specialising in Eastbound Sales, Services at Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport, Aircraft Engineer in Flight Operations and others.

      You obviously must have missed out because you weren't good enough and are now very bitter.

      You should be honest about it and tell the truth. When Etihad first entered into Air Serbia back in 2013, full page adverts were run in Blic, Vecernje Novosti and Politika for these graduate positions. Over 500 people responded and it was the first time in modern times that the airline had ever run such a recruitment drive.

      What's more, Etihad did the recruitment for these positions, so it couldn't have been more transparent than it was.

      Embittered locals and cynical neighbours. The usual blah, blah, blah.

    Leave the kids alone, they went through the EY selection program and passed their courses. I can only wish them the best and hope they can improve company's employee-management relationship, which is not the best at the moment.
