Landing A Pilot Job

Landing A Pilot JobJust a few years ago, the aviation industry was going through a very difficult time. Recent reports, however, indicate that the airline industry today is positioned for a big turnaround. The Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA) estimates that global aviation traffic will triple between now and 2035.

Some airlines are already beginning to see big profits. Those that are not are expanding their workforces in preparation for big years to come.

With the airline industry back on the upswing, finding a job within the industry has become mush easier than it was in the past. Couple the airline economic recovery with new internet technologies and some might say finding a job in the aviation industry today is easier than it has ever been. No matter what position within the industry you seek, you are certain to find a job listing on the Internet if you know where to look.

Aviation job boards have become commonplace on the Internet. In fact, using an online aviation job board is probably the quickest way to find any position within the aviation industry. An aviation job board (sometimes called an aviation job listing service) provides its members with a list of all types of aviation industry jobs. Mechanics, baggage handlers, reservation agents, customer service agents, flight attendants, and, of course, pilots can all find listings pertaining to their fields of expertise.

To apply for jobs posted on a listing service, members can usually click on a link and automatically send their resumes to the company looking for a new hire. Resumes are stored in the job board’s database so that applying for a job takes only seconds. Many aviation job listing services will even keep track of the jobs their members apply for. This helps their members avoid accidentally applying for the same job multiple times.

Other Ways Online Job Boards Help Employees Find Work

By storing employee resumes, job boards can also furnish employers with potential hires whenever they are performing job searches. If, for example, a company is looking for pilots with 10 years of 747 experience, a job board can filter its resumes and present the employer with a list of qualified candidates. An employer might be able to make an offer to a job candidate without that candidate ever directly applying for a job.

Improving Your Odds

Experienced aviation industry professionals should find at least one job board to check frequently when looking for work. A subscription to two or more job boards will increase the number of potential job opportunities somewhat, but there will undoubtedly be some redundancy from one job board to the next. To truly increase the odds of landing a good aviation industry job, a job seeker must check a job board and post his or her resume with a listing service that sends out resumes to companies looking to hire employees without going through the traditional job posting process.

College Degree From Aviation Training School

One final note–individuals who do not have a college degree and have limited job experience may need to attend an aviation training school before they can land a premiere aviation industry job. Training schools not only prepare their students for the business, they also assist their students with job searches after graduation. As is the case with aviation job boards, aviation industry training schools can be easily found by looking online.
