How to prepare documents for your job application?

How to prepare documents for your pilot job application? 

  • Make sure your resume is simple and clear, so that the recruiter could easily see if you match the requirements.
  • Prepare all supporting documents for your application. Do not add more documents than required. Some of the papers are missing? Mention it in your application, specify the reason and provide a preliminary date of when you would be able to get them. 
  •  Are you attaching the latest version of your supporting documents? Before you hit send, check if your medical certificate, license and type rating are valid.
  •  Double-check if each document you are submitting has a clear title (e.g. โ€˜โ€™Cabin Crew Attestationโ€™โ€™, โ€˜โ€™Licenseโ€™โ€™, โ€˜โ€™Reference letterโ€™โ€™). Do not merge all your documents in one PDF file. At the same time, avoid sending the same document split into separate pages. Instead of sending 3 separate scans of your logbook (logbook 1; logbook2; logbook3), combine them conveniently into one PDF file under the name โ€œLogbookโ€. 
  • When attaching your documents, make sure all copies are clear and visible. Also, check each document individually to make sure nothing is missing.
  • If you already have an application form, please fill it in carefully without missing any fields. It can take a while, but this part is very important. Sometimes applications get rejected just because you missed a field in the application. If you were asked to add a picture to the application form and sign it, make sure you do that (e-signature is also fine, but no computer typing).       

Good luck!
