A hiring trends survey conducted by online aviation jobs website JSfirm.com indicates that many companies predict at least moderate growth in 2021 as the economy continues to rebound from the coronavirus pandemic. Pilots, aircraft maintenance technicians, and avionics specialists remain in the highest demand, the company said.
More than 50 percent of the 200 hiring professionals, executives, and business owners responding to the company’s 2021 Hiring Trends Survey forecast at least “moderate growth” in the aviation sector. Additionally, almost 15 percent expected “significant growth.” About 20 percent predicted “no growth,” and 3.3 percent predicted declines.
JSfirm.com Managing Partner Sam Scanlon said that although “airlines make the headlines,” the small- to medium-sized companies that “make up the majority of our infrastructure made it through the past year and are now gearing up for growth.”
The company has continued to log an increase in traffic from both job seekers and companies looking to hire personnel, Scanlon said.
