Aviation Job Search


When it comes to Aviation History Month in November, there’s plenty to celebrate. From the first balloons sent up into the atmosphere to every device invented that elevated humans above the earth, our imaginations have been captured by the idea of flight. Aviation History Month recognizes the achievements of the men and women who make it happen.


Looking back, many of us quickly identify Wilbur and Orville Wright. However, long before the brothers took to the air, others were lifting off in other devices. In fact, the Wrights were inspired by these inventive pioneers in aviation. For example, Otto Lilienthal built gliders and flew them near Berlin, Germany. His very invention aided the Wright brothers in the design of a powered aeroplane.

Another notable figure in aviation history many will name is Amelia Erhardt. While she earned many records, the one record she never successfully circumnavigated the globe. The first woman to gain that honor was Geraldine Mock. In 1964, Jerrie Mock completed her feat in twenty-nine days, eleven hours, and fifty-nine minutes. She flew a Cessna 180 named the “Spirit of Columbus.”

In 1941, The 99th Pursuit Squadron was activated at Tuskegee comprised of black pilots and ground crews. They became known as the Tuskegee Airmen, a segregated military unit. Because the NAACP had forced the military’s hand, the airmen were under-trained and expected to fail. Though they did not perform at the same level as their counterparts, they completed their missions and met demands while overcoming obstacles. As a result, they led the way for integrated units in the U.S. Air Force.

How Employers Notify Applicants About Interviews

Aviation Job Interviews

When and How Employers Let Job Seekers Know About Interviews

When should you expect to hear whether you were selected for an interview? It could be shortly after you apply - or it could be never.

When Employers Notify Candidates

Unfortunately, in many cases, you may never know definitively that your application was rejected by a company. Some employers do notify applicants that they were not selected, others do not. In some cases, it's because they receive hundreds of applications for every available job opening and they may not have an automated system or the resources to notify applicants.

Some job postings state that only candidates who are selected for interviews will be contacted. In other cases, you simply won't know if you'll hear back or not.

In addition, the hiring process can be lengthy with multiple interviews and the employer may not notify applicants until they have filled the job. That could take weeks or months, depending on the position within the company.

For candidates who are invited to interview, you may be notified by phone, email or by an automated messaging system if you applied via an applicant management system.

Check Your Messages

Since you don't know how the company will contact you, check both email and voicemail at least daily, if not more often. You don't want to lose out on an interview because the company couldn't reach you in a timely manner.

How Employers Contact Applicants

Employers most frequently notify applicants by phone or email, but you may even receive a written letter inviting you to interview. The email message, letter or phone call you receive will include details on who you will be meeting with. You may be assigned a pre-scheduled time or you may be offered a choice of interview times.

If the company requires that you prepare materials (like a pilot check ride, for example) you will be informed as to what you should bring and how you should prepare. You should also be notified about the format of the interview/ For example, the company should let you know if you are meeting with a group of individuals rather than a single interviewer.

Please make time to check and manage your existing Avjobs email account as quickly as possible to insure any of your saved items are not lost during the transition.
