Interview Prep

Pilot Job Fair Prep Presentations

Your goal is to get an interview as soon as possible – we can help increase your chances of getting a call. You want to walk into a job fair or meet and greet prepared. We provide helpful tips that will lower your stress and touch on areas that you might not be expecting or prepared for.

    CURRICULUM:
  • Behavior at the event – you never know who is watching. Always be aware of your surroundings and what you say in public
  • How to greet the recruiters – first impressions have a big impact on the outcome
  • What kinds of questions you can expect from them – this is different from an actual interview, however, they will still ask probing questions
  • How the airlines evaluate your resume – what they will be looking for
  • How to deal with obstacles or inconsistencies in your background
  • Subjects to avoid
  • Demonstration of a mock job fair interview to demonstrate some good and bad approaches
  • Question and answer session
