In a perfect world the Avjobs system should...
Allow me to copy and paste my existing resume.
You can copy and paste your existing resume...
If you already have your resume typed into a word processing program you can copy and paste the appropriate information into each corresponding field.
The resume database was created as a "Searchable" system for Employers to narrow their search and find the right candidate for the job. Employers have the option of searching many of the fields separately to help in the process. Therefore, it is important to fill out as many of the fields as possible.
What will the employer see?
As you complete and save each portion of your resume, you can click on the "View Resume" link located in the My Resume sub menu. This is exactly how an employer will see your resume in the resume database. Employers also have the option to view more detailed information about your resume/application but the initial view will be formatted as a professional aviation formatted resume.
Taking the extra time to complete the Online Job Application & Resume Builder correctly greatly increases your chances of coming back in an Employer's search.
Avjobs continues to connect job seekers and HR professionals in the aviation community everyday. We are positive that the Online Job Application &
Resume Builder will do just that.
TIP: The system will time-out after 30 minutes of sitting on any one page. If you have a lot of text to type on a particular page, you may want type the info in a word processing program first and then copy and paste the information into each field. This will spell check for you too!
*More: If you do not care about coming back in an employer search, and you absolutely want to copy and paste your existing resume; you can paste your entire resume into the system instead of copying and pasting parts of your current resume into their appropriate fields. You would do this under the "Personal Information" section of your resume, in the "Career Objective" field. You must still have provided your primary career interest and personal contact information, or your resume will not show up at all.
* Please remember that we do not promote this decision because the system is fully searchable for employers by the information entered into each field. Therefore you may not come back in an employer's specific search for employees.
