JSFirm Makes $3,000 Young Eagles Donation
Company strives to promote awareness of aviation career opportunities via job search platform
July 28, 2018 - JSFirm.com announced that it’s donating $3,000 to EAA’s Young Eagles program on Saturday afternoon during EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018.
Abbey Hutter, JSFirm.com marketing coordinator, said that this year the company decided to use the donation as a way to show the diversity of AirVenture attendees.
“This year we’re making a donation to the Young Eagles,” Hutter said. “We had the idea to put a map in our booth and everyone who comes through, we have them pinning where they came from, which is cool. We’re in the part where the career fair is taking place and we really wanted to show EAA how much traffic actually comes through, and we thought what better way to donate to the Young Eagles [than] for every pin [gathered] up to $3,000, which we surpassed.”
Although Abbey acknowledged that some other companies may give more to charitable causes like Young Eagles, she said JSFirm.com just wants to support the program as best they can.
“Other places are giving millions, but we’re a small company, and we just thought we’d love to have a part of what EAA is doing with the Young Eagles,” Abbey said.
With partnerships with EAA, AOPA, and the SUN ’n FUN International Fly-In & Expo, Abbey said JSFirm.com’s mission is to support aviation.
“JSfirm.com’s goal is to keep pushing at the grassroots level and raise awareness of the possibilities within aviation through career fairs, scholarships and donations, and creating partnerships throughout the industry,” Abbey said.
Abbey said that JSFirm.com is built as a way for job seekers to find the right open positions in various aviation industries.
“It’s completely free for job-seekers to search and apply for jobs, and then we charge the companies to advertise in front of our members,” Abbey said. “[It’s] just like Indeed, but for aviation jobs only, and it’s not just for pilots and maintenance. We have avionics, flight attendants, tech writers, every facet of aviation is covered on our website.”
