The National Air Transportation Association (NATA) has launched the NATA Career Center, a “comprehensive resource for [aviation] industry recruitment and career development.” The center will seek to assist members in building connections with aviation professionals globally, in addition to providing education and guidance for potential new members of the industry.
NATA detailed examples of the resources which the center will provide to job seekers and employers. In addition to NATA member benefits, the center will provide job seekers control over which employers are able to see completed applicant details through anonymously posted resumes and optional alerts for newly available jobs.
“Among our members’ top challenges is employee recruitment and retention,” an NATA spokeswoman said. “By offering job seekers tools for career development and providing them information that highlights our industry, NATA’s Career Center is much more than a job board.”
The career center promises “extensive employment brand advertising opportunities for employers” and exposure to aviation professionals seeking jobs. It will incorporate social media and emails to registered job seekers to connect them with employers. In addition to the center, NATA is working on implementing aviation pathway programs into universities.
