Flying High

In the spring of 2015, Chris Biocchi was in his third year of a Bachelor of Business Administration program at Algoma University when an ad in the Sault Star caught his attention. The Sault Ste. Marie Airport was looking for a communications coordinator intern. The Sault College graduate in commercial aviation saw an opportunity to combine his two passions: aviation and business communications. He applied for, and got, the one-year paid internship. And much more than he’d hoped for. “I was hired to set up a new website and social media for the airport, which I did,” he says. “But I also got involved in different aspects of the business, including stakeholder relations and strategic planning. It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.” Best of all, it led to a full-time job as Security and Business Administration Manager.
