AEA Launches New Jobs Board

Visit AEA.net/Jobs to search the latest employment opportunities in the avionics industry

LEE'S SUMMIT, MISSOURI, Sept. 3, 2019 -- Coinciding with the recent Labor Day holiday in the United States, the Aircraft Electronics Association introduced its new online jobs board at AEA.net/Jobs

The revamped jobs board allows job seekers to find current employment opportunities with the convenient ability to search by keyword, company name, geographic location and job type. In addition, AEA member companies may post available positions free of charge for 30 days. If the position remains unfilled, AEA members may resubmit the online posting at no cost.

"The need for technical talent continues to be an issue for AEA member repair stations and manufacturers," said AEA President and CEO Mike Adamson. "The primary purpose of the new jobs board is to make it easier for AEA members to find their next avionics technician, quality manager, inspector, sales representative or engineer. We are excited to offer this additional membership benefit at no cost and add even more value to being an AEA member.

"I strongly believe that avionics is the most exciting field in aviation, as it combines high-tech with modern airframes, advanced propulsion systems and NextGen communication, navigation and connectivity solutions. But with workforce retirements, competition from other high-tech industries and a growing fleet, our industry is faced with the important challenge of recruiting and retaining the next generation of qualified aviation professionals. The AEA jobs board is an exceptional resource to link job seekers with avionics businesses and will help bridge the workforce gap that so many companies are facing. It also will assist our academic member institutions, other Part 147 aviation maintenance technician schools and career counselors as they proactively communicate industry employment opportunities with their students."

AEA members may submit a free job posting at AEA.net/Jobs after entering their username and password. Member companies that optionally choose to upgrade their job posting for a premium will have preferred online placement and also will be published in the next edition of Avionics News. Since its first issue was published in November 1963, Avionics News has been the industry's source for regulatory updates, technical articles, business news, legislative issues, and new products and technologies.
