Roanoke, Texas (February 2, 2021) - After the global events of 2020 brought aviation hiring to a screeching halt, JSfirm.com says that activity on their website shows aviation hiring is on the rise once again. Not only has job seeker activity shown a marked increase, but the number of companies advertising their openings on the site is also returning to pre-Covid levels.
JSfirm.com has seen an overall increase of 19% in job postings over the last quarter, and January alone has seen a record number of job postings on JSfirm.com, even compared to pre-pandemic numbers. Website traffic on JSfirm.com from job seekers has been on a steady increase over the past month, as well, with January 2021 (to-date) seeing a 48% increase in job seeker activity compared to December 2020.
Abbey Hutter, Executive Director of JSfirm.com, said, “After the sudden and unexpected downturn of hiring in the aviation industry in 2020, we were all eager to see what 2021 would bring us. The increase of job advertisements from companies is astounding. This is a very promising start to 2021.” She continued, “Our concern now is that due to retirements and people leaving the industry during the past year, the industry will be left with an even bigger shortage of talent than before Covid. Smart companies are hiring now, so they don’t find themselves dealing with work-stopping understaffing issues as the industry begins to regain steam.”
