General Resume Tips

WHAT EMPLOYERS LOOK FOR IN A RESUME
It's important that your resume be as strong and positive as possible. An incomplete resume tells employers that you are not serious about yourself. And if you are not serious about yourself, you are probably not serious about the job you are eyeing, either.

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. Make yourself fit the job.

A concise, error-free resume will add a professional, organized touch to your "paperwork" presentation. A resume also comes in handy if there is special information you want the interviewer to know but cannot find an appropriate place on the company application to list these important facts. Writing your own resume and completing company applications can be relatively "pain free" if you spend the time to collect all the information you need BEFORE beginning the writing process. This information has been provided to help you in composing both your resume and specific company applications. This information is a standard part of our Resume Builder System

POINTS TO REMEMBER

  • It is best if your resume is one page
  • Have your resume professionally printed
  • Use white or light ivory colored paper, 25lb., 100% cotton weight. Use the same paper for your resume, cover letter and reference sheet
  • Do not put the word "resume" on your resume
  • Do not include references on your resume. References should be on a separate sheet
  • Do not leave employment gaps of more than 2 months
  • Basically list only your "adult work history". If you worked during high school or college, list your descriptions under EDUCATION and place it after the listing of your degrees and/or course work title

    EXAMPLE - B.S. in Aviation Management from Metropolitan State College. To assist with college and flight training expenses worked all four years as a fueler/airplane scheduler/ground instructor for local FBO

    You may title your separate sections whatever you please (i.e., Work History could be Experience, Employment History, etc.).

    No matter what titles you choose every resume should include:
    Flight Time/Certifications/Ratings, Employment History, Education

    Individualized sections may include:
    Specialized Training, Community Involvement, Interests, Honors/Awards

    You may list your PERSONAL INFORMATION (birth date, height/weight, etc.) but it is not necessary

    APPLICATIONS

  • It is important that your application is presented as professionally as possible
  • Remember, this information is a representation of YOU on paper
  • Unless it specifically states to "PRINT" or unless you have incredibly fine penmanship it is much easier to read if it is typed
  • Leave no blank spaces. If a question is not applicable to you write "N/A"

    The company application will be the primary information source for the interviewer. For this reason it is important to use all available space on the application to point out any special traits or experiences you may possess. Many applications ask questions such as "Is there any other information you would like us to take into consideration?" Use this space to sell yourself!

    For example: if there has been no place on the application to list you community involvement, or no opportunity to discuss your college scholarships or military flying awards this type of question would be the place to briefly list these facts.

    Resume Guidelines
    The thought of writing a resume intimidates job hunters needlessly before their search has even begun. Remember, a resume is merely a capsule summary of your history; you are on your most familiar turf. Your resume should provide enough information in an easy-to-read format to interest potential employers without inundating them with irrelevant details. Before putting pen to paper, you need to think about what you have accomplished, where you are headed and how you want to represent yourself. Your resume is intended to be a verbal picture of you, designed both to give an employer your factual data and to create and leave a favorable impression. It connects you, the prospective employee, with the employer, so it must be written in a language commonly understood by both. The Avjobs Resume Builder does just that.

    We could throw some frightening statistics at you, like employers spend less than a minute screening a resume and then discard 95-99% of those screened. Rather than become discouraged by such ominous numbers, however, recognize the importance of attracting the employer's interest through a concise, attractive content and presentation. It is crucial that your resume reflects your personality and individuality, yet there are general principles which should serve as guidelines regardless of your choice of format or style. It is also important to remember that resumes may be "general" (useful for seeking positions in a variety of career fields) or "job specific" (a stated objective is usually present at the beginning of this type of resume). Resumes that are job specific tend to get the best results.

Flight Attendant Training Overview (Airline)

The flight attendant training goal is to develop a professional, self-reliant flight attendant who is focused on customer service, safety and creating an environment where customers definitely desire to fly the airline again.

The Flight Attendant Initial Training Program is designed to provide you with learning experiences that enable you to develop the skills necessary to fulfill this goal.

The training program is structured to be both challenging and satisfying for you. The Training Center staff and instructors are dedicated to provide you the opportunity and support necessary for you to be successful in meeting all key objectives of this program.

Most Training at major air carriers is incorporated over a 6-8-week period that may or may not include a minimum of one day off per week.

During training you may be eligible to receive incentive pay (normally around $1,500). Trainees who are offered an opportunity to enter Phase II training and accept such offer may receive this incentive pay.

The flight attendant trainee must agree to enter Phase II training in order to receive the incentive payment.

During the intensive training program you will be trained through a variety of learning experiences including several training flights or IOE's (Initial Operating Experience). The learning methodologies include:

  • Classroom style lectures
  • Group discussion
  • Interactive Workshops
  • On-line learning
  • Simulated practices with hands-on experience in the cabin trainers
  • Training Flights (IOE's)
  • Videos
  • Formal Assessments (i.e.- testing & quizzes)

Training proceeds at a rapid pace. You are provided with highly effective learning aids and tools to assist you in meeting the challenges of the training process. You will need to take the initiative to adapt these tools to your own learning style.

Your instructors are a team of experienced flight attendants, facilitators, management, interdepartmental trainers, and external subject matter experts. These instructors are assigned to guide your training activities. You will be assigned a supervisor during training. It is his/her responsibility to provide support and monitor your progress throughout training.

All Flight Attendants in training are responsible for their actions. Any unacceptable personal conduct may result in release from the Flight Attendant Initial Training Program at any time.
