We're Accepting Resumes -- AND Hiring! ANN Puts Out 'Help Wanted' Sign

BIG Upgrades In The Works --- ANN Is Seeking EXCEPTIONAL New Staffers

The last few years have been about as challenging a time as we can recall... but we survive (yeah, we're kinda surprised, too) and look forward to 2023 and what we see as a very rewarding (and yes, still challenging) new generation of activities at ANN.

After some truly weird times during the pandemic, ANN continues to expand slowly, but surely, and we have some truly intriguing upgrades coming up over the next few months.

In other words, we're about to grow again -- REALLY/TRULY -- and in some novel directions. The much-appreciated expansion of "AIRBORNE UNLIMITED", the incredible potential of the all-new digital edition of the SportPlane Resource Guide (eSPRG), some really exciting projects for SUN 'n FUN 2023, a new Aero-Reality series, and a number of upcoming books and projects are but the tip of the iceberg.

BUT.... after years of prep, skullduggery, negotiation, and some truly inspired brain-storming, we're ready to take the wraps off even more new products and developments that will further continue ANN's streak of creativity, innovation and aviation advocacy.

We're about as excited about our future as we've ever been, but we're concerned about finding good people -- the RIGHT people -- for a number of jobs we need to fill now and in the near future.

We have major staff positions to fill in the near future. So... we're looking for a few (actually, not so few) good aviation professionals.

Might one of them be YOU?


Searching For ANN's Next Associate Editor

We've added some new folks to the roster lately, but we will need a fair amount of additional editorial staff -- both for ANN as well as special projects like Sun 'n Fun, AEA, AUVSI... and of course... OSHKOSH. These are pretty flexible gigs... needing several hours each day, on assigned duty days, on an adaptable schedule. You can work from anywhere so long as you have a good high-speed net connection and the appropriate tools to pursue the day's stories.

The qualified respondent needs the following… SOLID aviation/aerospace writing and journalism credentials/abilities, SOLID photographic/graphic web smarts, proper working disciplines, Good basic web skills (light HTML know-how and some grasp of photo-editing) and E-Mail skills, a strong work/journalism ethic, and an ability to meet and adhere to tight deadlines; as well as RELIABLE full-time access to a fairly speedy Internet connection (DSL, ADSL, T1, T3, Starlink, Pipeline to the Almighty, etc...), a computer with the ability to keep up with a number of graphic chores and editorial efforts, and the ability to work with a very strange crew of ANN weirdos. Since this job is computer-based, it does not matter where you live and we are, of course, unconcerned about your workspace so long as the job gets done (and the less info we have about someone working in pink shorts and fuzzy bunny slippers, the better).

We are also looking for SportPlane/LSA/Sport Aviation conversant fly-writers to help us with projects for the SportPlane Resource Guide... this will be our BIGGEST effort... EVER... so we need all the help we can get. If this fits you, let us know... we have projects, right now, that need extra attention. 


We Need Web-Geeks!

We’re also looking for the following… an experienced Web Designer/Programmer to help us with a great number of new projects. We're going to be dumping a huge amount of work on our normal web-geeks over the next few months, and it's high-time that we developed a solid gig for someone else with the skills to help us with a number of projects that are getting left by the wayside for lack of the staffing necessary to pursue them. We need someone with EXTENSIVE ColdFusion/SQL/Win2K/IMail/CMS experience and the ability to do a little bit of everything when the electrons hit the fan.

Strong experience in NewMedia and Multi-Media applications is absolutely a must. Solid graphic design skills would also be a BIG plus. Work may be offered on a contract/fee basis OR term contract, depending on the qualifications and availability of the appropriate applicant. To the right person, this is an on-going gig as we have a LOT of projects in the offing and there is enough to provide a competent web-geek a long-term scenario.

We’re also looking for the following… an experienced web/print-conversant graphic artist to help us with a number of small projects ranging from print ads and marketing documents, to book layout and cover designs. Experience with motion graphics, animated GIFs, and similar formats are particularly valuable. Work will be offered on a contract/fee basis and requires no on-site work (which, of course, means you have to have all the requisite computer assets at your disposal).



We're looking for several bright, hard-working, disciplined and technically adept persons to help produce Aero-TV (and affiliated programming for our content partners) newscasts and features, webcast over a variety of broadband networks and outlets, under the ANN or Aero-TV banner (or that of our syndication partners).

Let me explain... there are even BIGGER and more enticing changes coming for Airborne and we're going to be hiring for that project as fast as we can locate suitable staffers. NO KIDDING.

Applicant should be able to bring extensive expertise in Apple's Final Cut Studio, Adobe After Effects and related CS3-CS6/CC software to the mix. Strong knowledge of web production techniques (online compression technologies as well as Flash/QT/WMV conversions), and chromakey techniques, studio operations, and field operations, are a huge benefit to this position as is some experience as a camera operator (Canon XH-A1, XF305, XF105 HDV, C100) for either studio or occasional field assignments. 4K experience is most welcome and shooters with on-air skills and real talent will be given FIRST priority in the hiring sequence.

Of particular interest is another staffer near Northern Florida to augment the "Home-Team" here in Orange Park (Jacksonville), FL, but we will also consider personnel who prefer to stay where they are currently located. We're looking for someone with solid reporting or journalistic credentials -- while a strong technical aptitude, especially in aerospace or aviation is preferred. Some on-location travel will be necessary on a regular basis. Reply with resume, clips, pix, etc...

For all the above... Please send your resume, an intro letter, and contact information to ANN right away... as these positions are ready and waiting for the right person, right now.

And that's all you have to do! We'll be in touch!
