ATEC and the Aeronautical Repair Station Association (ARSA) have joined together to support Hire Our Aviation Heroes, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping veterans transition into civilian aviation careers.
On June 24, that relationship will bear its first fruit when Aviation Heroes hosts an online job fair. The event will help employers build a pipeline of high-quality, well-trained aviation talent right into their workspaces. For veterans, it will be an invaluable first step towards building a new career on the foundation of their military training and years of hands-on experience.
“An online job fair is a perfect way for aviation employers and recruiters in the industry to create a live connection to transitioning aviation veterans,” Aviation Heroes Executive Director Bret Morriss said. “On the day of the event, employers chat in real-time with jobseekers in one-on-one conversations while getting a snapshot of their resume and background. It’s highly interactive and provides employers with much more insight into the candidate.”
In addition to learning about career opportunities, job seekers can build their professional network and meet front-line recruiters who are making hiring decisions in the weeks and months to come all within the comforts of their home or office.
“Hire Our Aviation Heroes is doing great things to help transition our veterans and provide a vital resource for the aviation community,” said Crystal Maguire, managing associate for Obadal, Filler, MacLeod and Klein, the firm that manages both ARSA and ATEC. “From the cockpit to the control tower to the maintenance line, businesses are hungry for workers with the right skills and training to serve the global flying public. On June 24, Hire Our Aviation Heroes is hosting a great event to help feed that need.”
