How do I find a good electromechanical technician?

I'm working to help one of my clients hire an electromechanical technician. An ideal candidate would be an electrician or electronics technician, E-6 or above, with six years or more military experience. Military experience isn't required, but the client is looking for someone who can both do hands-on corrective and preventive maintenance as well as manage a preventive maintenance schedule, research and order parts, research new equipment, document processes.

We'd love introductions to military recruiters who specialize in placing candidates E-6 or above who are electricians or electronics technicians.

Here are the job responsibilities. The position is in the New York metro area. If you know anyone who might be a good fit, or could help us find a good candidate, please leave a comment.
