Online Job Application & Resume Builder Help:
Each page of the application is self-explanatory and user friendly. Simply fill in the fields and our system will extract the necessary information from your application and produce a complete aviation standard resume.
If you already have a resume saved on your pc, you may copy and paste much of the information into our application. Both the application and resume feature a standard aviation format. Click Save after completing each page, and your resume will be added to our system for Employer viewing.
Save or Submit each page frequently.
In order to avoid losing any information by having the page time-out, be sure to click the Save button at the bottom of each page every 20 minutes or so. You can easily go back to any page to add, modify or delete any information at any time by selecting the appropriate location from the navigation bar on the left hand side of your screen.
You may find that some of the questions on each page do not apply to you. If this is the case, you may leave those fields blank.
There are also fields within the application that you may not necessarily want to show up on your printed resume, even though they may apply. These fields are designed for the Employer and will not show up on your resume. Answering these questions will make it easier for an Employer to find the right candidate for the position available and will only be shown in the application view.
You should periodically click on View Resume to see how your resume looks as you are entering your information.
To stay at the top of the list, make updates or changes to your resume often. The system is setup to sort resumes by the most recent posted. So don't forget to keep your credentials up-to-date and remain at the top of the list when an employer does a search.
How long will this take?
The entire process will depend on how extensive your resume credentials are, but on an average it may take 15-30 minutes. You can easily go back to any page to add, modify or delete any information, at any time, by selecting the appropriate location from the navigation bar on the left hand side of your screen.
How do I enter my information?
Each section of your resume will be entered on a separate screen. By simply hitting the Save button at the bottom of each page, you will be walked through to the next screen/section.
Can I copy and paste my existing resume?
Yes, however, we do not recommend that. The resume database was created as a Searchable system to better help employers narrow their search and find the right candidate for the job. But NOT having your information in the appropriate fields you may not come back when an employer is doing a search. If you already have a resume typed into a word processing program you can copy and paste the appropriate information into each field. If you still want to copy and paste your entire resume please paste it into the Career Objective field under the Personal Information section.
What will the employer see?
As you complete each portion of your resume, you can click on the View Resume link located on navigation menu. This is exactly how an employer will see your resume in the resume database. Employers will also have the option to view more detailed information about your resume/application but the initial view will be formatted as a professional aviation related resume.
