Shortage of qualified applicants cited in recent survey

Now is the time to apply like never before.

Although Avjobs.com applicants are applying for jobs available in the Avjobs Applicant System, other applicants appear to be taking the day off?

A recent survey from the Manpower Group cited that almost 49% of employers in North America are reporting difficulty in filling positions due to the lack of available talent. According to Manpower, "This figure represents the highest proportion of employers reporting difficulty since the start of the economic downturn in 2008 and a 4% increase over last year's survey"  For a complete copy of the survey, click here.

Job Search Tips
Of course we can give you all kinds of tips on how to get your next job or make a career change, but in the end its all up to you. If you don't take action, you'll never experience change. You need to take the first step.

First and foremost, you need to apply for jobs. Finding the jobs and getting your paperwork together is half the battle. That's where Avjobs comes in. The Avjobs Applicant System will automatically prepare your resume to professional aviation standards, and is packed with thousands of jobs that need to be filled "yesterday." That's right, "YESTERDAY!"

It is a common misconception that all jobs are filled in 30-45 days. The fact is, most jobs go unfilled for more than 180 days due to the lack of qualified applicants. Recruiting qualified applicants is a much more complex problem than most applicants think. Applicants stop applying, because they ASSUME the position is filled, and the position goes unfilled for an even longer period of time. In most cases, the older a posting is, the fewer applicants will apply for it.

Employers post and manage their own jobs in our system. When their postings get filled, they remove them. Avjobs provides the framework to make the recruiters' job easier. If the posting is still in the system, it is there for a reason. You should apply for every position that you are qualified for and interested in.

Before developing our Applicant System, we sent a questionnaire to over 7000 participating Avjobs Employers. The request to remove the "Date Posted" field from job postings was unanimous. The average time to fill a vacant position (among responders) before using the Avjobs.com Employer System was 204 days. Some even reported that they had the same position open for up to 2 years.

Enable Windows 7 RSS Feed Reader Gadget (How To)

How To Enable Windows 7 RSS Feed Reader Gadget with Aviation Job Information
Windows 7 has a clean and simple RSS (Really Simple Syndication) Reader - Gadget built-in.

The Windows 7 Feed Reader Gadget works great, and it's a pleasant surprise to have the information at your fingertips (or on your desktop) whenever you want it. Although it's not as robust as Google Reader, it's good enough for keeping track of feeds in real-time which can be handy for aviation news or job announcements!

Windows 7 RSS Feed Reader GadgetInternet Explorer that lists your Favorites, Feeds, and History

Unlike the Gadget from Windows Vista, the new Feed Reader does not manage its own list of RSS feeds. Instead feeds are pulled directly from your Internet Explorer Feed Subscriptions. Don't worry if it doesn't make sense yet? We'll take a closer look and show you exactly how to set it up!

How to Manage and Organize Windows 7 Feed Reader

  1. First let's bring the Gadget to the visible desktop. To do this Right-Click any open space on the Desktop. Then Click Gadgets.
    bring the Gadget to the visible desktop
  2. The Gadgets window will appear and look similar to the image below. If you haven't used or installed any Gadgets before you may have less, but the "Feed Headlines" Gadget comes with Windows 7 so you shouldn't have a hard time finding it.
    The Gadgets window
  3. Next, Right-Click the "Feed Headlines" Gadget and then Click Add.
    The Gadgets window
    On your desktop you'll see the feed reader Gadget appear. The feed reader may be blank initially, but should populate with some preconfigured Microsoft information after a short period of time. No worries, we're going to fix that in a minute so we get the aviation news or job announcements we really want.
  4. When you place your mouse over the Gadget you'll see the toolbar for it appear on the right-hand side. Now click the wrench (Options).
    Note: For the dedicated RSS fan, the larger size feature is very handy and makes your RSS feeds much easier to read. (We'll show you that later)
    Gadget toolbar
  5. Now in the Feed Headlines window, click the Display this feed: drop-list menu. If you've never used the Feed Headlines Gadget before, you'll have a pretty limited selection to choose from, and it should look very similar to the image below.
    Display Feed Headlines
    You can select to display all of your subscribed IE feeds, or just one of your favorites. But we really wanted aviation news or job announcements so let's set that up now.
  6. Let's head over to Avjobs.com and subscribe to one of the free RSS Feeds. Open Internet Explorer (is probably already open). Just in case you don't know, Internet Explorer is the Microsoft version of the Web Browser and also comes free with every copy of Windows 7. With Internet Explorer open go to www.avjobs.com
    Go To www.avjobs.com
  7. Once the Avjobs.com site has loaded you can get to your list of RSS Feeds by pressing "CTRL+SHIFT+H". This should open a window on the left side of Internet Explorer that lists your "Favorites", "Feeds", and "History". Click the "Feeds" tab. You should see something pretty similar to the image below.
    Internet Explorer that lists your Favorites, Feeds, and History
  8. Now look for the ORANGE RSS icon or the GREEN Web Slices icon at the top of your browser (it may be located on the left or the right if you have other toolbars installed). You can pick whatever you like, but for now, let's click on "Avjobs – Live Job Feed"
    the ORANGE RSS icon or the GREEN Web Slices icon
  9. The next page you see should look something like the image below. The important part to pay attention to for now is the Yellow box at the top.
    RSS Feed Page
  10. In the Yellow box click "Subscribe to this feed"
    Subscribe to this feed
  11. Now we need to go back to your list of RSS Feeds. Click the "Feeds" tab. You should see something pretty similar to the image below.
    Internet Explorer that lists your Favorites, Feeds, and History
  12. Now let's place your mouse over the Feed Headlines Gadget on the desktop and click the wrench (Options) to reopen the feed selection dialogue again.
    Note: This may still be open from earlier in the set up process. If it is, just click "Cancel" in the bottom right corner and then click the wrench (Options) to reopen the feed selection dialogue again. Now you should see "Avjobs, Inc. (Avjobs.com) last 50 posts." In the list. Click it, and then click "OK".
    Display Feed Headlines
  13. All done! Your Windows 7 Feed Reader Gadget should be full of aviation job announcements directly from Avjobs.com. We have lots of other aviation specific feeds available too. So why not set them all up?
    Well, it's up to you, but now you know how to do it and have the information at your fingertips (or on your desktop) whenever you want it.
    Note: For the dedicated RSS fan, the larger size feature is very handy and makes your RSS feeds much easier to read.
