Aircraft Technologies Group has launched the Beta test of Aviation NETWorX, a new high-tech tool for seeking aviation maintenance professionals. ATG COO Jay Logie describes the service as, “a heuristic, self-serve, data-communication system designed for finding direct and contract-to-hire employees.”
NETWorX will provide immediate access to résumés, credentials, experience and availability of thousands of technicians with the click of a mouse. Logie says each technician will be automatically vetted, so firms know new hires can hit the ground running.
“Simply use the job posting option to start and follow the directions,” Logie explains. He believes the work histories and heuristic capabilities of NETWorX will virtually eliminate unsuccessful hires and are preferable to shotgun recruiting.
Firms seeking to use NETWorX can use a self-serve video and PowerPoint introduction help them with profiles, company details, posting and search processes. ATG staff can also walk them through the process. Once onboard, MRO recruiters can access NETWorX from any computer or device for quick changes or responses to situations. Certificates and personal documents can be downloaded as in a filing cabinet. All technicians in the system remain anonymous until they accept a job.
NETWorX already has 6,000 skilled techs in the system, and Logie says customer reactions are favorable. “We expect to see dozens of customers signing up over the next year while we go through our Beta test.” Customers who sign up before July 7, 2017. will never pay a subscription fee.
The ATG says NETWorX differs from other recruitment tools in several ways. Employers can view technicians’ experience as if they were their own employees. “It is patented and trademarked with more features and benefits than any other system available today.” The tool also provides incentives for techs to find and reference other techs to meet company requirements.
And ATG will enhance NETWorX with an Aero Skills Tournament, photo galleries, webmail platform and an Innovative Works feature that would help technicians determine the viability of their STC ideas.
