AOPA Aviation Job Board launches

Tap into pool of aviation-related jobs, applicants

Looking for an aviation-related job or have a job opening that you would like to advertise to AOPA members? The just-released AOPA Aviation Job Board allows free posting of resumes and searches for aviation-related jobs—more than 1,000 jobs are already posted. Employers can list new job openings for a fee.

“The AOPA Aviation Job Board is a great tool to connect our base of passionate aviators with opportunities in the aviation industry,” said AOPA Vice President of eMedia Chris Ward. “We believe that companies will see the advantage of hiring individuals who understand business from the perspective of a pilot, whether the role is in in the cockpit, in the hangar, or in the accounting department.”

The site spans the world of aviation, with career opportunities directly related to aviation and indirectly supporting the aviation community. Companies such as Honeywell, General Electric, Rockwell Collins, Northrop Grumman, United Technologies, and Mayo Clinic have listed jobs, as well as government agencies, including the FAA, Army National Guard, and Navy.

Through this member benefit, members can post their resumes directly to the job board for free, and employers can review them right there. Job seekers can search the growing list of openings around the country in fields ranging from engineering to management, post their resume, and set up an email job alert based on positions and locations in which they are interested.

Employers who are AOPA members can get a discount on posting open positions. Single job postings can be purchased for 30, 60, or 90 days. Prices start at $125 for 30 days for AOPA members and $200 for nonmembers. Packages also are available for multiple job listings for different time periods as well as a one-year unlimited job posting option ($5,700 for members, $9,000 for nonmembers).
