Hear what Senior Management has to say about the ADEPT Program:

"I am a huge fan of the ADEPT program here at American Airlines. I try and get as many ADEPTs in my org as possible each year. Their recent college experiences bring a fresh perspective to our organization and help us think about problems differently. Because we are very intentional about the type of person we hire into this program, I have had the privilege to work with some very talented people who will be the future leaders of our IT organization.”
