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

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

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.

Life Bitch!

Do you ever have moments where you question what the fuck you’re doing with your life? Everyone probably has them right but as someone who is a logical thinker I get stuck on how to fix that.

Just lately I’ve really been questioning what to do with my life. We spend the majority of our life working. We spend at least 8 hours a day there so it has to be something we enjoy. But what if you don’t know what you enjoy? Does anyone really know what would make them happy in life? I’m not sure I do.

This is where I get stuck. Where’s my checklist to work through to understand what I should do. I wanted to be a performer my whole life and I worked hard at it but it didn’t happen. Then I was going to go into accounting but for one reason or another…

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.
