Mention present instructing position?? (Resume)

#1 Post by marakii » Thu Sep 21, 2017 12:27 pm

If applying for a better suited flight instructor position do you mention the present one you have on your resume??

Is that a negative (why leave) or positive (experience ).

Thanks

It’s going to be pretty obvious if you claim to be an experienced instructor, that you’ve been working *somewhere*.

What are you trying to hide?

I'm not hiding anything at all, just a measly class 4 trying to do more that's all. I'm not claiming to be an experienced instructor as well because I'm not just trying to get better that's it that's all.

It's just if they ask "why do you want to leave"

You have to list your current employer on your resume no matter what industry you're in.

Answering why you leave a company is not a resume type of thing. Resumes are like a limits section in a manual. Just a list of facts and figures. That's all. Why you left or are seeking to leave a current job is an interview question and a common one at that.

Oh - they will ask, I mean, wouldn’t you?

I think you misunderstand me. If you’re an instructor who’s given a single hour of instruction then you’re “experienced”: you’re going to get asked about where, and for whom. You can’t pretend you’ve never worked as an instructor and it just looks shifty if you don’t say where.
