GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - The University of North Dakota has established a partnership to assist student pilots land jobs in SkyWest Airlines.

The university says aviation students who meet certain requirements including having a commercial pilot license will be eligible to participate in the SkyWest Pilot Cadet Program.

The school and the airline will mentor students. The cadets will also receive a retained hire date and may have opportunities to participate in SkyWest recruiting events.

Students who complete the program will not have a guaranteed job, but they will be given a conditional offer of employment and are guaranteed a final interview for a first officer position at SkyWest Airlines.
