Building an aviation resume is the single most important item in your job search. There are countless websites, some free and some fee-based, that offer resume building techniques, advice and tips.  Your computer will have basic software that will enable you to begin a resume, as well.

Your resume advertises your qualifications, and it is important to create a winning advertisement that is certain to catch the eye of an aviation employer; there is a technique for creating aviation resumes for technicians.

Companies use websites to mine aviation resumes. These sites have Boolean or keyword searching capabilities. This means that employers may search the resume database using terms such as “Avionics and Garmin,” or even more complicated searches such as “(Avionics or Technician) and (Garmin 530 or garmin530 or g530 or g-530) and (Citation7 or citation 7).” Make sure your resume is written in such a way that your experience is encompassed by these key terms.

General Resume Guidelines (Source, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University)

  • Most employers spend less than 20 seconds scanning a resume before making a preliminary decision about the candidate. Put yourself in the reader’s position and think about what they are looking for in an employee
  • Margins should never be smaller than .5″
  • Use easy-to-read fonts such as Arial, Helvetica, Calibri or Times New Roman
  • Avoid over-formatting text. Make your section headings bold and only use italics or underlines if necessary
  • Use active phrases instead of passive
  • Entry-level candidates should limit their resume to one page, while mid-career and experienced candidates may have a two-page resume. Do not go over two pages
  • Use 10-12 point font. Avoid very small or very large text
  • Do not rely on your computer’s spell check function. Review each word carefully. It is easy to miss typos when you are familiar with the content of the document
  • Have at least two other people review your resume for spelling, grammar and other errors
  • Do not lie about your experience. Augmenting your credentials with a little fiction might help you get the job, but you can easily lose it if you are found out. Many employers conduct background checks
