At Avjobs, we want to make sure our aviation applicants stand out from the rest! There are several things we can recommend to all aviation applicants and we offer even more tips to our active applicants. A resume is always a work in progress and it’s vital to review your resume periodically to be sure you are always marketing yourself the best you can.
Here are a few tips:
- Keep a notebook and write down any new accomplishments, projects, volunteer work, responsibilities, skills, training etc. and update your resume as necessary
- Be sure to distinguish yourself from everyone else doing the same job
- Give specifics of what you do
- Include key statistics, numbers, quotas overachieved etc.
- Check for typos and grammar issues
- Use compelling action verbs

The Avjobs Resume Builder is just that and helps you layout all your aviation training, flight hours, employment, military history, education and pilot and mechanical experience. Active applicant members can call for a free Avjobs resume review and feedback once you have completed all 6 sections of the resume builder.

As a former recruiter I can say that companies typically do pay to get a pool of qualified applicants. In this day and age they want the best bang for their buck and the market is very competitive. Utilizing Avjobs can help transition people as well as newcomers to companies they may not have considered or that don't advertise through conventional methods. Avjobs has 25 years of proven connections worldwide. As someone who is transitioning as well I had to ask; Why would I limit myself to what only I can find? Chris G
Do what you love. Love what you do.
Register with Avjobs today and you just might find the aviation job that you love.
Handeling Rejection During Job Search
You may have responsed to many job postings, sent your resume to employers, completed many online applicantions and spent time interviewing to no avail. It is important to learn from those experiences to better yourself for next time. Rejection is an important part of the interview process and you can’t take it personally. Instead, accept it and reflect upon your approach to see if there are positive changes you can make for the next go around.
- Ask yourself what you could have done differently, how you could have handeled yourself differently, how you could have prepared differently etc.
- Work on any questions that you had difficulty answering
- Did you provide too much or too little information on any particular questions?
- Did you do research on the company before you interviewed?
- Could you have asked better or more appropirate questions with regard to the vacancy or the company?
Make note of what you learned from your own self assessment for reference. It’s important that you use this renewed energy to keep moving forward and ace the next interview.
