Aviation Company Directory

by Pat 4. January 2012 16:30

Avjobs applicants have easy access to company specifics and are able to link directly to participating employer web sites. The Aviation Directory contains over 50,000 + listings, and is an online aviation employer directory.

While many aviation job seekers place great importance on perfecting their resumes or honing their interview skills (and, yes, these are crucial), one component is often neglected from the job search process:
Company Research and Networking!

You can use the Aviation Directory to find aviation companies by location or company name and utilize the contact information to get in touch with potential employers, even allowing you to send invitations to view your resume via e-mail, print and fax your pertinent information and even map the location of the company.

Not only does the directory provide you with ways to get in touch with industry professionals, the Aviation Directory streamlines the process of making contact with these companies.

Telephone Provides you with a contact number.
Mobile Phone Provides you with the individual’s cell phone number.
Fax Clicking this icon will automatically print a fax cover page, a cover letter and your resume. All you have to do is fax the information to the company.
Email Clicking on this icon will send a notification to the provided e-mail address, inviting them to view your online resume.
Website This icon will take you to the company website. You can also click on the thumbnail of their website or click on the company name above the contact information.
Print This icon will automatically print a cover letter and resume to send to the company you are interested in. The cover letter is formatted so that, when folded properly, it will fit into a #10 window envelope with the address aligned in the window. This gives your letter a professional look and saves time, omitting the need to hand address each envelope you send.
#10 window Envelopes can be purchased at any office supply store.
Print Clicking this icon will print a cover letter to be sent to the company. This is a good way to inquire about opportunities with the company. The compatibility with #10 window envelopes from above applies to this as well.
Map Clicking on this icon allows you to map the company’s location.

What's the best way to find out what it's like to work at a company? Ask the people who work there! In other words, ya gotta network.

When conducting research on a particular company, networking can benefit you in two ways:

  1. It will give you an "insider's perspective" on what it's like to work at the company; and

  2. It will give you a chance to make allies with people that can help you land a job. Many companies have employee referral programs, so getting to know current employees may be one way to get in the door.

When you find someone, send him/her a friendly e-mail naming the friend that you have in common and mentioning that you are considering applying to the company in question. Ask if they would mind answering some questions about what it's like to work at the company.

If the person doesn't respond to your e-mail or says "no," don't take it personally. Instead, look for someone else who might be able to offer insight.

If the person agrees, consider asking questions such as:

  • What's the company culture like?
  • Are employees generally happy there?
  • What can they tell you about _________ department?
  • Could they direct you to anyone else who might provide useful information?

Remember to be professional and polite. Spell-check and grammar-check your e-mail before you send it. Keep it brief and make sure that it won't take an inordinate amount of time to answer.

Most companies are looking for individuals that will improve their bottom line. If you display knowledge not only about a company but also their competition, you will likely give the impression that you are conscientious, up-to-date, driven and knowledgeable -- qualities that most employers highly value.
