How To Apply for a Job

When you fill out the resume information in our system, it’s for Aviation Employers to look at your qualifications easily online even if you have not applied for that particular job (if that’s an option you choose).

But when you see a job you want and hit the “Apply now” button, you may be redirected to the employer’s website or prompted to attach your resume:

You should always have a SIMPLE, CLEAN and EASY TO READ resume on hand.  The Following tips outline a Standard Aviation Resume Format and simple suggestions on how to avoid your resume from ending up in the trash folder:

1. Pick a good typeface

If you’re using Times New Roman, Word’s default typeface, change it. It doesn’t read well on-screen. Because it’s available on virtually all computers and designed to be readable on-screen, try Georgia instead.

If you don’t like Georgia, feel free to choose another appropriate typeface.

2. Remove extra indentations

Reduce the number of indentations. While useful in outlines, too many indentations in a résumé will cause your eyes to jump all over the place.

3. Less is more

You want your resume to be aesthetically appealing while it outlines your skill-sets and accomplishments in the most positive and effective way possible.  The average employer looks at a resume for approximately 25 seconds.  Make those seconds count! It is the combination of the resume’s content and format that will get you in the door for an interview. 

4. Make it easy to skim

To make your résumé easy to skim, you have to create a distinct typographic symmetry.  A typographic symmetry expresses an organizational system for content, emphasizing some data and diminishing others.  It helps readers scan text, knowing where to enter and exit and how to pick and choose among your qualifications.  With this in mind, a resume should always be on one page only.  More than one page will cause the reader to lose interest in the content.

5. The final résumé

This is an example of a clean and simple Aviation Resume:
