How to save your Resume as PDF in Microsoft Word

This information also applies to Microsoft Word 2003 and newer.

If you have a Resume prepared with Microsoft Office and you want (or need) to share with others but do not want them to change the format, you may want to save it as a PDF. PDF files also preserve formatting when printing, so you can feel comfortable that your Resume looks exactly the way you want it to look.

Adobe Acrobat can cost around $300, and if you only need it for 1 or 2 documents, that can be kind of spendy. With this little secret, you can quickly and easily save your Microsoft Word Resume as a PDF document is just a few steps.

  1. First open your resume in Word
  2. Next, Click the "File" tab or the "File" pull-down menu and select "Save As"
  3. After clicking "Save As you should see the following dialogue box (or something very similar)
  4. Select the "Save as Type" pull down, and choose the "PDF (*.pdf)" option
  5. In the File Name box, enter a name for your Resume, if you haven't already
  6. Click "Save" and you're done

General Aviation Mind Tricks

We recently had a chance to visit this website with some pretty good little tricks for general aviation pilots.

We all know it is very easy to make a mistake in aviation when numbers are involved. Todays flight computers and glass cockpits provide us with a plethora of numbers to help us do our job, and provided we are able to cross check them, this is quite useful. When it is not so useful is when the numbers are wrong due to a wrong entry or malfunction and we don't recognize the problem.

This website is a collection of mental math tricks to get a rough answer while flying and to crosscheck the answers given by a flight computer or GPS. All the tricks are roughly organized into the tabs above based on what phase of flight you might first use them.

Give this site a read, and you just may end up bookmarking it!

Some of What's New in Aviation Ad Network (20 SEP 2013)

  • Day Parting - Advertisers can select what day of the week their campaign will show. If an advertiser wants their campaign to run only on Fridays, they can do that.
  • Time Parting - Advertisers can also select what times they want their campaign to show.  If an advertiser wants their ad to show between 2PM and 5PM on Friday, and 1PM and 4PM all other days of the work week, they can do that.
  • Domain Blocking - If an advertiser is also a publisher, or if an advertiser simply does not want their advertising efforts to appear on a specific site, this feature allows Advertisers to block their ads from appearing on domain names they provide.

How to Interview Like a Pro

Do you remember as a child being told, “Practice makes perfect”?  Well, the same is true with job interviews.  Learning to interview like a pro takes practice.  And lots of it!

While there is generally no right or wrong answer to interview questions, there is a right and wrong way to answer.  What do we mean?  Interviewers are busy and don’t have time for the fluff.  They simply want to know what makes you better than the other candidates they have brought in for an interview.  They do not want long drawn out answers. They do not care that your dog recently had surgery.  They do not want to hear that you showed up on time every day at your last job.  Bottom line is they want to know what you bring to the table that will help them soar above their competition and into the future.

The Avjobs Interactive Practice Interview is as real as it gets and can help you interview like a pro in minutes!  Turn up the volume on your computer to hear interview questions and be given time to respond.  Refer to your resume and professional portfolio to help organize your thoughts and answers.  While you should never memorize answers, you do want to have key points to touch upon.  Our Interactive Practice Interview is included in the Ultimate and Premier registration options.

Register today and commit to spending 30 minutes a week practicing your interview skills.  You'll pat yourself on the back when your all practice pays off.

 

Jobs that don't include contact information

How can I apply for a job that doesn't include an Apply link and has no contact information?

Unfortunately this happens once in a while. Contact us with information on the job posting number, job title and company name. Well need to contact the company so they can update the job posting to include an apply method.
