This story is part of AIN's continuing coverage of the impact of the coronavirus on aviation.
NBAA is rolling out an initiative called "BizAv Back to Work" to provide resources to help business aviation reopen and facilitate the return of the workforce that has been shaken during the Covid-19 pandemic.
BizAv Back to Work will expand on the association’s existing employment services by providing members with free 30- or 60-day postings on its jobs board, Business Aviation Jobs, through August 31. In addition, NBAA will provide a regularly updated listing of positions available in the NBAA Insider Daily news service and in biweekly Job Flash reports. Further, job seekers can submit their resumes to the jobs board for review and inclusion in the searchable bank for free.
The BizAv Back to Work initiative also will involve the development of tips and tools for those seeking employment that will appear in various NBAA outlets, including NBAA News Hour, NBAA Flight Plan, and Business Aviation Insider. Along with this, NBAA is planning a Virtual Career Fair on August 12, and it said details will be released in upcoming weeks.
The association noted that recent surveys have highlighted that job security is now among the top concerns of its members and said BizAv Back to Work was packaged to help address that.
“Although Covid-19 has produced daunting challenges for our community, it is clear the people and companies in it are resilient and ready to get back to work,” said NBAA president and CEO Ed Bolen. “This new initiative will put the resources in people’s hands to help employers find dedicated professionals, and help qualified individuals start or resume a business aviation career as quickly as possible.”
