Resume Drop Off

#1 Post by AF1000 » Mon Nov 21, 2016 10:50 am

Has anyone walked in a resume to a Corporate Operator? If so, did you have any success applying this way? Looking for some feedback on different ways to move into the corporate side of aviation.

Thanks for the help!

:!: Proceed with caution :!:

Seems more dangerous than effective to me, if a manager is in the office, chances are they aren't looking to be bothered. There are exceptions to every rule of course. If you know they may be looking and you can politely approach an administrator/secretary/receptionist, that could be reasonable. There's definitely a nuance to being resourceful and not annoying.

If you can find an "in" through a colleague or friend, it would be far more effective; at least this has been the case in my career. Make friends with the fine people who work ground roles at FBOs, they often know the scoop before anyone.

Good luck!

It's hit and miss. Some corporate guys love to shoot the breeze with fellow pilotsthat walk in off the street, while others just want to focus on their paperwork they have to do so they can get out of the office and use the time off that corporate flying allows. A phone call first can help to determine the nature of the individual you would be visiting.
