Veterans: The Aerospace Industry Needs You
THE AEROSPACE INDUSTRY IS ACTIVELY SEEKING VETERANS AND EX-MILITARY PERSONNEL TO JOIN ITS RANKS.
Recognizing the value of their unique skill sets and attributes, the sector is eager to tap into this talent pool, offering an array of exciting career opportunities for those transitioning from military service.
With a unique and highly sought-after blend of skills and attributes, many of these individuals are already fully equipped for careers in aerospace and space, they just don’t know it yet.
Why Veterans are the Perfect Match for Aerospace
LEADERSHIP, TEAMWORK, AND DECISION-MAKING ABILITIES
Ex-military personnel bring invaluable leadership skills, teamwork, and decision-making abilities to the table. These traits are crucial in addressing the complex challenges faced by the aerospace and space industry. Their experience in high-pressure, time-sensitive situations uniquely qualifies them to handle the rigors of this demanding sector.
CUTTING-EDGE TECHNOLOGY EXPERIENCE
Veterans have already honed their skills working with cutting-edge technologies that directly support military objectives and mission goals. Their innate ability to adapt, think critically, and maintain an agile mindset is especially relevant for roles such as avionics technicians, aircraft mechanics, and systems engineers. This experience allows them to hit the ground running, reducing the need for extensive training and accelerating their integration into the workforce.
HANDS-ON EXPERIENCE WITH AIRCRAFT SYSTEMS
Many veterans already have hands-on experience with the same aircraft that leading aerospace organizations own and develop, highlighting the seamless integration of their technical acumen and soft skills. These individuals’ hands-on approach and expertise in diagnostics and manual tasks make them indispensable as aerospace mechanics, a critical role in maintaining vehicles vital to national security. Additionally, their potential experience with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and advanced radar systems would allow them to contribute to the development of innovative aerospace technologies that will shape the industry’s future.
ADAPTABILITY TO REMOTE ENVIRONMENTS AND DEPLOYMENTS
Due to the nature of their work, aerospace organizations are often based in remote environments, such as the Californian desert. With many deployable roles on offer, some staff could find them stationed in a hotel in Germany for one month, then spending the next three in a tent on an airfield in Angola, living off ration packs with limited facilities. Ex-military personnel are well-versed in working on a shift basis and adapting to deployments worldwide. They possess security clearance and have acclimated to challenging and extreme conditions. This adaptability is an essential quality within the aerospace industry.
