Going to work excited every day is rare for just about everyone, but for those who work in aviation, it tends to be more common. Once aviation gets in your blood (and it seems to happen very easily), you are sucked right into the middle of it all as you find yourself involved with one of the most rewarding and dynamic industries in the world.
I have been in aviation for… quite some time, and I can truly say that there have only been a handful of days during my career when I was not excited about coming into work. I’ve always felt this way, and as I sit here and type this article, I can honestly say that, even after all these years, I am still excited about the work that I do and the industry we are in. Here are some reasons why…
My name is Brian Boje, and I am the Senior Director of Recruiting for STS AeroStaff Services. A few weeks ago, I was asked to write a newsletter article focused on answering the question, “Why are you excited to come to work every day, and how does that excitement translate into success for you and your team?”
For brevity’s sake, I could dive right into my response, but that would be disservice to those of you who don’t know me. So in an effort to avoid isolating my readers, I think it’s best to start with a story; or rather to tell you where my love for aviation spawned from and how that love led me to where I am today.
As the Senior Vice President of Engineering for STS Engineering Solutions (STSES), I am truly excited about the opportunity to build and grow a professional organization in uncharted territory. Whereas my management activities at both Boeing (for 5 ½ years) and Northwest Airlines (for 16 ½ years) were rewarding, there were always limitations due to the fact that I was working for “big business.” At STSES, there are no real boundaries for growth, and this make each day both new and exciting.
When STS Aviation Group’s Marketing Director asked me to write an article around the question, “What excites you about coming into work every day,” I had to do some digging. I was interested in exploring this not only on an introspective level, I also deemed it wise to pose the same question to members of my team and see how they’d respond.
Before I get too far ahead of myself, let me circle back and start this story again from its true beginning; when I applied for a job with STS more than 11 years ago.
I routinely tell my staff, “If you’re not happy and excited to go into work most days, you owe it to yourself to make a change.” I believe this to be true for every level of employee; from those in leadership roles to newly-hired interns.
There is no reason that a person working at the lowest levels of an organization should be more or less happy than those working at the highest. In other words, I don’t feel that one should spend a significant portion of their professional lives in a position that does not make them happy. This is not only something I wholeheartedly believe in, it is something I preach to each and every employee at STS Aviation Group.

If you have had any exposure to the military, then you’ve probably heard the term “grunt.” To those on the outside, it can have a negative connotation. For those that have served, they will tell you that grunts deserve an immense amount of respect.
As an “Air-winger” in the United States Marines, I looked up to infantrymen (aka “grunts”) with intense admiration. They were the ones engaged in daily combat with the enemy. They were the ones experiencing the grind and sacrifice often associated with accomplishing the mission.
