If you don’t have an “in” with the company you are applying with, you have a little better than a snowballs chance in hell of getting hired

Keywords: {0}

When companies post jobs on sites like Indeed; the majority of the time that post is there for HR reasons, and they will most likely already have a list of candidates to interview. These candidates are F/As that they have a prior connection with- by previous contract employment, a referral from inside the company, or someone that the hiring manager already knows and likes. IF they run out of those candidates, then they will move on to the hundreds of applications they got from the websites. I am telling you this because It is reality in corporate aviation, and you NEED to know it to get a job…

I advise you not to apply for jobs through LinkedIn and instead go directly to the company’s website or other job boards like Indeed or Glassdoor

Keywords: job search , networking , professional , linkedin , social media

One advantage that I do utilize LinkedIn for is your ability to search a company and then look at the employees who are currently working there. You can find people in positions similar to what you are looking for and try to connect with them that way, or see if you have any mutual connections. Better yet, after finding these potential connections try going to the company’s website and looking at their leadership/team page and see if they leave their contact information. Do they have an email address listed? Is it a uniform format for each employee? If so, you can bet that if you use that email format with the person’s name that you found on LinkedIn you want to connect with that they will receive your email.

I know what it feels like

Keywords: lifestyle

I know what it feels like to feel alone. I know what it feels like to live in a new city without knowing a single soul. I know what it feels like to be the youngest in the team. I know what it feels like to experience imposter syndrome. I know what it feels to feel like a failure. I know because I’ve been there. You are not alone. You are not a failure. You are knowledgeable. You are smart. You will figure it out. You are made for something greater than you could have ever imagined. Patience is a virtue, but with hard work, anything is possible. As always, if you need to talk, feel free to reach out.

Why do we have to put so much effort into job hunting if Employers can just not even respond to our application?

How Much Is Your Life Worth

Why should a programmer have to go through 200 questions, a programming test, have a github portfolio, a website portfolio, a custom cover letter. ONLY for an employer to not even give a call back or a human email saying they were rejected?

Oh and if you just try to simply submit your application and refuse to do these bullshit ass tests/portfolio then people think you’re lazy. How the fuck am I lazy for not wanting to throw hundreds of hours of my life away on this bullshit job application process.
