The Aircraft Electronics Association (AEA) has introduced the AeroCareers website as a “one-stop shop to help recruit and retain the next generation of talent.” According to AEA, the site offers a “spotlight on career paths in aviation” and links to jobs, scholarships, aviation schools, veterans’ resources, information for educators, and salary data, among others.
“Developed by a team of industry representatives who acknowledge the path to a career in aerospace can take many forms, this workforce initiative strives to provide clear and simple information for those who aspire to reach a higher altitude,” said AEA president and CEO Mike Adamson. “Business owners, aircraft technicians, pilots, engineers, marketers, and manufacturers all joined the effort to sharpen the focus on opportunities in aerospace and make the path to success easier to navigate.”
AeroCareers is designed to “inform, educate and direct students, parents, teachers, counselors, veterans, and career changers” to help attract the best talent for the industry. The online resource also includes a showcase featuring industry professionals who work in various segments of the industry. Each individual offers advice and outlines his or her personal career path to help inspire the next generation of aerospace professionals.
