Aviation Job Interview Step-by-Step

You will knock your interviewer's socks off by being confident and ready to answer anything they have to throw at you! Additional resources are available in the Avjobs Applicant System.

  1. Pre-Interview
    Schedule Interviews

    Look through the Avjobs Applicant System or your local newspapers classified ad section. Locate and schedule at least 20 interviews for challenging and professional positions. You need not be interested in obtaining these positions, as these interviews will be used as experience, building your self confidence and interview skills. Through these experiences you become more knowledgeable and comfortable with interviewing practices. This self-induced confidence allows you to be yourself, and shows a potential employer what type of an employee you will be for their company. You should start this interview process immediately so that you are well prepared before your first potential job offer with an airline, airport, aerospace or general aviation company.
  2. Pre-Interview and Actual Interview Experience
    Dress Appropriately
    Dress as closely as possible to the uniform required for the position you are interviewing for. This allows the interviewer to see how you would look as an employee before they hire you. As a general rule most companies wear dark blue business type suits with black shoes and white shirts. Try to dress as closely to this description as possible as it gives a professional appearance regardless of the company uniform.
    • A conservative hairstyle; natural looking with no extreme shape or color.
    • Make-up appropriate for daytime business wear.
    • Nails are to be well groomed and all cut to the same length.
    • Jewelry is to be conservative. No more than 2 earrings per ear. Men may not wear earrings. Nose, tongue, or eyebrow jewelry may not be worn.
    • If you have a tattoo, make sure it is not visible. If your tattoo is located in a position such as a forearm or calf, place a band aide over it - large enough to cover the entire tattoo.
  3. Talk confidently
    Use proper English and a well-modulated voice. Always use positive statements and never offer negative comments about past employers or experiences. If a negative question is asked, try your best to turn your negative answer into a positive statement.
  4. Smile
    Show your personality to the interviewer and co-applicants as someone may be watching you from a distance. Don't present a fake or false image; simply be yourself, as you will have to continue to act this way once you are hired.
  5. Don't Give up
    If for any reason you are not hired by the first airline you interview with, "Don't give up". You may not be hired at your first interview or by your first airline, airport, aerospace or general aviation company. Multiple interviews are common practice in the aviation industry. Chalk everything up to experience, and use all previous interviews to build on your mistakes for your next opportunity for employment. Every interview you attend builds self confidence and interviewing skills, giving you an edge over your competition.

    When your applications file life expires or if you are not hired after an interview, reapply. At a later date you may possess the requirements the airline is looking for, or be recognized the second time around. Remember these requirements vary over time and need.

"Familiar Faces Attract Attention"

Everyone must understand that you are not just being evaluated on your experience and education alone, but also by your looks, personality, confidence, enthusiasm, and any other attribute that can help them decide whether or not you are right for the job. You may find out that some people get hired just because the interviewer "liked" them. Of course this is not always the case, but developing effective interviewing skills can help!

The Avjobs Applicant System has the "Practice Interview"
The staff at Avjobs along with other industry wide personnel offices agree, the interview can make or break an applicant regardless of experience or training. It has been the experience of Avjobs and its employees that there is a "best" preparatory procedure for interviews.

The Avjobs "Practice Interview" section describes this preparatory process and provides tools and tips for you to be at your best.  The "Practice Interview" includes audio, video and hundreds of sample questions. So turn up your sound and practice those interview skills.
