The interview questions are good exercise...but, could there be the possibility of getting appropriate answers too? Sometimes I really don't know the answer, but I would like to.

 


 


Everyone must understand that you are not just being evaluated on the answers to the interview questions alone, but also by your looks, personality, confidence, enthusiasm, and any other attribute that can help the interviewer decide whether or not you are right for the job. You may find out that some people get hired just because the interviewer "liked" them. Of course this is not always the case, but developing effective interviewing skills can help!

The more you practice the more prepared you will be for what ever an employer is going to throw at you. You should spend a minimum of 30 minutes each week practicing your interview skills. You may accomplish this easily by answering just 5 questions each day.

Avjobs provides you with almost 400 possible interview questions, and although there is no "right answer", there are a few things you can do to make sure you have the "best answer".  Always remember to keep your answers positive, and practice the following:

Interactive Practice Interview: The interview can often make or break your odds of landing the job regardless of experience or training. Prepare yourself with our Interactive Practice Interview loaded with real interview questions. This, is as real as it gets! The "Online Practice Interview" includes audio, video and hundreds of sample questions. So turn up your sound and practice those interview skills.

Know the Basics: Knowledge is Power. Educate yourself to remain ahead of your competition. Study Acronyms, Glossary Terms, Phonetic Alphabet, Airport Codes, Flight Attendant Announcements, company info and more

Industry News: Stay abreast of what's going on in the industry with our real time news feed.

Internal News & Announcements: Here, we highlight hard to fill positions, open interview sessions, hiring frenzies, job fairs and company news. This section is updated often so be sure to check it out each time you sign in to view special announcements from employers.

Persistence, Motivation and Dedication are intangible aspects of your job search. How much effort you put in directly affects how many interviews and job offers you will get. The one thing you cannot do in your job search is give up. A winning attitude and the ability to keep yourself motivated is paramount to finding and landing the job you want.

Practice Interview Activity: The interview is often the most critical part of your job search. Be better prepared by using the Online Practice Interview. You will be asked random questions and given an allotted time to provide your answer. Practicing interview questions often will greatly increase your chance to land the job.

Always Be Prepared for Interviews! This is the key to becoming a part of the organization, and the first impression you make is some times the ONLY impression you have. Make it work! Practice sample interview questions with our "Online Practice Interview."

Always remember to be confident & positive!  View some additional tips at http://members.avjobs.com/my_olpi_instructions.asp

    Top 3 reasons to Apply, Apply, Apply!

    Believe it or not there are employers out there who still can’t find enough applicants. Some are offering six-figure salaries to the right job seekers. The trick is finding and applying for these hidden opportunities. Be sure to apply for these jobs today - employers are waiting for you! Both Avjobs and our participating employers want you to apply for jobs.

    Top 3 reasons to APPLY, APPLY, APPLY.

    #3 - Practice Interviewing. It is incredibly important to continue to practice your interview skills. And there is NO better way to practice than with an actual job from an actual aviation related employer. Take the opportunity to polish your skills and become comfortable with your ability to answer questions as well as ask questions them professionally. You should schedule and go on at least 20 interviews to be ready for the job you want.

    #2 - Networking. What better way to network, than with the actual people you are trying to get to? Through the interview, you may find other job opportunities within that company or even with another company. Remember you must go thru one door to get to the next.

    #1 - Jackpot. You never know, it could turn out to be the dream job you never knew about. We have even seen companies use a "Dummy Job" or a "Front Job" to filter out unqualified candidates, when they are actually hiring for other positions that they are not advertising. No matter what, you will gain experience for your next job or career move.

    We cannot stress this enough...

    We strongly recommend that you APPLY for any job that looks interesting to you.

    Remember, getting a job is a two way street. Many job seekers assume that the employers have the upper hand, and that they have many applicants to choose from. Give yourself the "upper-hand"; apply for as many positions as you possibly can, in the end, you are the one who decides whether you want to take the job.

    What does your email address say about you?

    What does your email address say about you?We recently reviewed an article titled "AOL Email Address Brands You As Technologically Obsolete." The article said that having an outdated email address from a company like AOL brands a person as being someone who is not willing to move forward with technology. The article specifically discussed people looking for a job and how an employer might question a candidate’s suitability for the job simply because of the email address he or she uses.

    What does your email address say about you?

    We were intrigued by how many applicants are using various “old” email addresses as their primary means of contact. We have a rather large database of applicant email addresses due to our weekly aviation jobs newsletter (AvjobsWeekly) that we send. So we did a simple search for some common email domains with the following results.

    • AOL: 2464
    • Yahoo: 13,056
    • Hotmail: 7,511
    • Earthlink: 143
    • Roadrunner: 191
    • Comcast: 634
    • .edu: 492
    • Gmail: 5359

    Each of these email addresses are free. But in this case, "free" may be costing you a lot.

    When we receive business email that is using one of these free services we (and every other recruiter and hiring manager) - correctly or not - make some basic assumptions. Our first assumption is this person is not really serious about building or marketing themselves as a serious applicant—at least not in the aviation sector. Second, while they may be serious, they just don’t understand how to keep up with today’s technology changes and improvements, or what that email address is really saying about them.

    Every communication leaves an impression. Your email address is your online front door. Emails you send to employers and hiring managers invite them to come to your “office” (your online presence) to read your resume and learn more about what you have to offer as an employee.

    You may question our inclusion of Gmail on this list. We have several Gmail addresses. But we don’t use them for business purposes or as our primary email address. Gmail works well as an email client to manage your incoming email. It works very well for lots of people. Just don’t send employers a message from your Gmail account if you want them to really pay attention to it.

    Setting up an Avjobs hosted email account with your own name is easy and included with every applicant account.

    There is simply no reason not to have a unique email address that reminds people about your interaction and commitment to the aviation industry. And every time you send an email from your myavjobs.com email account, you’re encouraging people to view your resume, accomplishments and value in the aviation industry.

    If you are using an outdated email address for your job search, we encourage you to spend the small amount of money required to get a professional email address.

    What do you think? Does an email address make an impression?
