You are probably already aware of how critically important the role personal connections play in your job search. So if you are applying to an airline with whom you have a good contact who's willing to recommend you for employment, you should draft the cover letter differently.
On most of the airlines' pages in our database, APC includes a notation of "Most junior captain hired: (date)." This info is valuable for a few reasons. It shows how long it has taken the most junior captain at the airline currently to reach that seat. Simply subtract the date of hire from the date today, and you'll know approximately how many years it's taking new captains to upgrade.
Having writer's block, or just can't find that perfect phrase for your resume cover letter? Well, APC has you covered. Review the following pilot-specific cover letter phrases and you will be well on your way to writing an effective cover letter.
E-resumes are the current trend with pilot employers, with more and more companies moving away from paper. Fortunately this benefits pilot applicants. Your information is now delivered within seconds instead of days, time and expense to print and mail your resume is eliminated, and your information now often sits in an employer-searchable database.
There are airlines today that hire primarily through internal referrals. Some won't even interview a candidate-- no matter how exceedingly qualified-- unless that person has been referred by someone at the airline. On the face of it, this might seem unfair. But looking through the employers' eyes, you can see why this works for some of them.
