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.

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 The article said that having an outdated email address from a company like AOL brands a person as being someone who is not willing to move forward with technology.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.

A career choice is based on a thorough understanding of your needs and wants, and the requirements of the aviation labor market.
At mid-life, you have the advantage of being able to draw on many years of real-world experiences to select a career that:
- Lets you use the skills you enjoy most.
- Pays enough to support your lifestyle.
- Is in demand.
Why do you need to change your career?
Recognize what you don't like about your present career. Name specific sources of discontent. Some possible reasons are given below. Perhaps you can think of others that are relevant to your situation.
- You have skills you enjoy using, but your present job doesn't allow you to use them.
- Your current job doesn't give you the monetary benefits that your work deserves.
- You want to find a job that pays what you believe the job is worth.
- You want to find work that is its own reward, that is satisfying and meaningful and that has intrinsic value, regardless of earnings.
- You want a change of pace, to slow down and to have more time for yourself, your family and the community.
- You're ready for a new challenge.
- You want the chance to grow and learn in a direction that your present situation won't permit.
- You want to enhance your image and prestige.
- You don't like your present schedule, the hours, the shifts, the overtime or the lack of flexibility.
- You're unemployed and you want to broaden your job search and explore new fields.
- You're employed, but things at work are not as much fun anymore. Perhaps the company has changed hands or you have a new boss who doesn't support your career growth.
- You feel you're ready for a change of environment and maybe a new career too.
Before you make drastic career changes:
Stop and consider:
Can you come up with creative ways to solve your problems without changing careers? For instance, would you be content to transfer to a different department, division or even a different company where you would have the same job in the same field?
Is your discontent related to:
- The job itself?
- The company environment?
What happens when I apply online for a job thats posted on Avjobs.com?
Employers receive your resume and cover letter via email and also within their applicant tracking folders on Avjobs. You receive a confirmation page that your resume and cover letter was sent successfully. You may or may not also receive an email from the Employer confirming the receipt of your resume. Please note that some Employers and Recruiters may not respond immediately to your resume submission, and some may not respond at all. After you apply for a job, your complete application is then listed in your Job Cart under the Jobs I have Applied for section and can be tracked from there. Note Some employers use the Apply button to take you directly to their company website. For those job applications, and for applications that you send directly to the company via email, fax, or postal mail, a record of the application will not show up on your Jobs I have Applied for page unless you print the required documents from the job posting using the Avjobs automated document preparation system.
