This industry uses many skillsets that are directly related to your airframe license. You should know that engineer jobs will almost exclusively require a 4-year degree. I looked, you can find many interesting jobs if you search for "technician" do not limit your search with "airframe". I saw composites, sheetmetal, mechanisms and propulsion jobs listed. Look these descriptions over, submit a resume and good luck!
Space is not merely a matter of life or death, it is considerably more important than that!

Thank you so much ! By the way I havent been able to apply my license on the field since my issue date 2016, But i do have 3+ years of experience in the practice (school) with some Power-plant studies. Will this be taken as "Experience" or not at all ?
Once again Thanks !

Those are usually considered training hours. Experience is hours after licensing... It really depends on what you are applying for exactly like fabrication. They may looking at experience using equipment only such as welders etc...

Hmm... OK Thanks for the advice ! I have come up with about 10 positions that im very interested in, non the less i will send my resume to all of them and see what happens. I am pretty sure that they must have some specific training for their purposes in case that im missing some knowledge on their field of work (most likely).
