Aviation Specific Resumes & Cover Letters
Once your career goals have been targeted, resumes and cover letters should be tailored to reflect your qualifications as they relate to the interests of prospective employers. Guidelines for developing these job search materials start with our Online Job Application, Designing Your Aviation Specific Resume, Resume Checklist, and Sample Resumes.

What Employers look for in a Resume
It's important that your resume be as strong and positive as possible. With your resume before them, employers can visualize how you will operate within the framework of their corporation, and how your skills and abilities will be utilized in the future development of the company.

Your Employment Summary
Although the Avjobs Resume Builder will automatically sort your previous positions by date, you should start with your most recent employer, and then continue in descending order. When entering your current position (present employer, student, or military), the date fields may be left blank and the system will automatically default this information to be your present position.

Unemployed Periods
Only list unemployed periods that were longer than 30 day. You'll be more likely to impress an employer if you can show that you used the time between jobs to acquire new skills or additional qualifications.

Additional Employment Information
Make the most of your skills and strengths when building your own resume. With your resume before them, employers can visualize how you will operate within the framework of their corporation, and how your skills and abilities will be utilized in the future development of the company.

Military History
Military personnel offer a great deal of experience and dedication to prospective aviation employers.

College, Trade or Military School, License and Certificate History
Emphasize those skills, the education and training that specifically pertain to the position you're looking for. List the highlights of your education and training that clearly fit the type of skills employers are looking for.

Pilot Supplement
The Pilot supplement was created with the help of 17 different major airlines, and other large aerospace and aviation companies. The information contained on this page is the only pertinent information requested by these companies. Please try to include all of your necessary skills and background information within the provided fields. This section provides employers with the general overview of your piloting experience, training and background that they request. Be as specific as possible. Provide full and abbreviated names when listing aircraft flown.

Mechanic Supplement
This area applies to all mechanical experience. Review the skills and equipment listed in the Applicant System to identify the specific skills you possess. For those skills/equipment experience you possess, check the corresponding buttons to indicate your level of expertise. You may come back at any time to change your level of experience as your training continues.
