How to send your resume as an attachment

In a perfect world the Avjobs system should...

Allow me to send my Avjobs resume as an attachment.

Of course, and Avjobs has created a shortcut for that.

From time to time you will notice that some employers request that you email your resume as an attachment. Or, once you have applied for a job, an employer may request an additional copy of your complete resume as an attachment.

Once you have completed the Online Job Application & Resume Builder, and you are ready to apply for open positions, you can select "Save Resume to Desktop" from the Navigation Menu, under "My Resume".

This will allow you to download a copy of your resume as a Word document, and save it to your Desktop, or destination of your choice.

Once you click "Save Resume to Desktop", you will receive a prompt, asking "Do you want to open or save this file? Click "Save"

A Dialogue Box will appear, prompting you to select where you want to save the file, and allowing you to change the name of the file if you like.

Remember - If you have made any additions or changes to your resume online, you will need to repeat the procedure above to ensure that you are sending the most updated version of your Avjobs Resume.

The best way to keep track of the positions you have applied for via email with an attachment, is to save the positions to your "Saved Jobs", and add a note that you applied via email, or attached as Word doc, etc.

Avjobs is always here to help.
Feel free to contact our office for additional assistance.

TIP: When you initially open your resume doc in Word, you will be able to see the actual table, however, it will not print this way. If you save the file as a .rtf it will remove the table lines. Word will spell check for you too!

Automated Document Preparation: Select (preview cover letter) on the job posting you are applying for and copy the text to insert into the body of your email. This will create a custom cover letter specifically for the job you are applying for.

Salary range and compensation data for job postings

In a perfect world the Avjobs system should...

Always provide the salary range and compensation data in each job posting.

What are Aviation employers willing to pay?

Since Avjobs applicants can search for positions by both wage type and salary; Avjobs highly encourages employers to provide a salary range for each position posted (low to high). We believe that you need to know whether the position will be paid by the hour or salary, as well as how much; unfortunately many companies are not able, or willing, to disclose this information on every job.

For this reason, Avjobs also offers a list of current Salary & Hourly "New Hire" earnings as reported by Participating Employers. "This is what aviation employers are offering to new employees today."

The aviation industry offers career opportunities to suit many interests and backgrounds. Avjobs provides this look at careers in aviation for you as you plan for your future.

Combine the Career Overviews, Salary Table and Job Search Tools to help you achieve your Aviation Career goal today!

You may check the current salary for any job any time! Go to the "Salaries" page. Select Salaries from the Navigation Menu.
(Each time an employer enters salary data into their posting, they contribute to the most recent industry salaries and the table is updated in "real-time".)

FOR BEST RESULTS: Update your Resume now and often to go to the top of the Employer search results list.

You may turn this notification service on and off by changing your selections in the Personalization Settings area under My Account.

Copy and paste my existing resume

In a perfect world the Avjobs system should...

Allow me to copy and paste my existing resume.

You can copy and paste your existing resume...
If you already have your resume typed into a word processing program you can copy and paste the appropriate information into each corresponding field.

The resume database was created as a "Searchable" system for Employers to narrow their search and find the right candidate for the job. Employers have the option of searching many of the fields separately to help in the process. Therefore, it is important to fill out as many of the fields as possible.

What will the employer see?
As you complete and save each portion of your resume, you can click on the "View Resume" link located in the My Resume sub menu. This is exactly how an employer will see your resume in the resume database. Employers also have the option to view more detailed information about your resume/application but the initial view will be formatted as a professional aviation formatted resume.

Taking the extra time to complete the Online Job Application & Resume Builder correctly greatly increases your chances of coming back in an Employer's search.

Avjobs continues to connect job seekers and HR professionals in the aviation community everyday. We are positive that the Online Job Application &
Resume Builder will do just that.

TIP: The system will time-out after 30 minutes of sitting on any one page. If you have a lot of text to type on a particular page, you may want type the info in a word processing program first and then copy and paste the information into each field. This will spell check for you too!

*More: If you do not care about coming back in an employer search, and you absolutely want to copy and paste your existing resume; you can paste your entire resume into the system instead of copying and pasting parts of your current resume into their appropriate fields. You would do this under the "Personal Information" section of your resume, in the "Career Objective" field. You must still have provided your primary career interest and personal contact information, or your resume will not show up at all.

* Please remember that we do not promote this decision because the system is fully searchable for employers by the information entered into each field. Therefore you may not come back in an employer's specific search for employees.
