Basically the only people NOT hiring right now are those depending on oil patch work.suve87 wrote:Hello guys,
I have been applying since beginning of this year and I haven't received any call or email. Just curious what's going on?
Is there anyone getting call or email for interviews? or its just quiet session of 2016.

I doubt many people who have put down roots in the West want to relocate to Ontario, hence the amount of movement still going on here.
If you are looking for a job in Canada, use the canadian terminology. AMEL / Certified Flight Instructor => that's FAA words.
unless you are looking for a flight instructor position, remove the Dual given hours. Don't lie if they ask, but don't volunteer that info. Same for that Second in command (unless they are looking for SIC time or do you mean FO time ?). Same for cross country time. Operators don't care.
If you have references, put hem on your resume. Don't put references available upon request. (but people disagree on this one)
Cover letter: Make sure you address the company you are applying to. Add the name of the person who will be reading your resume.
How many companies have you visited ? Why did you leave the US ? (you don't have to answer that here, but it might be a question employers have)
Good luck !
2) explain why you are not at your previous EMJ job (if you don't most will assume you got fired)
3) say "professionalism" less
4) probably have more luck getting a job in US with that type rating
First the bad:
I think you're sort of throwing a hail marry by applying to the companies you mentioned; I suppose you could luck out but I wouldn't hold your breath. I guess it's alright that you have a jet type rating but the long and the short of it is that you lack the experience required to sail into the Canadian 705 industry.
I googled the two companies you instructed at and what I saw didn't leave a great impression. The first one closed up shop and left 79 Vietnamese students in limbo. The first image displayed was one of a 172 with collapsed nose gear and a fire truck beside it.
The second school you worked at is at least still in business but is also clearly a puppy mill for foreign students. One of the few reviews I could see mentioned that the service was shite and the instructors could barely speak English.
You have a resume filled with spelling and grammatical errors.
Your path so far doesn't match the typical Canadian aviation experience and I think pilots in hiring positions look for candidates with experience that they can relate to. It's clear from looking beyond our borders that pilots can transition straight from a trainer into a 705 category aircraft but in Canada a more steady progression is still valued. I think that progression has been validated based on recent accidents we've seen from an assortment of international carriers.
As for the good:
You've accumulated a fair bit of time in the last few years and scored an Embraer type rating and an airline job. Somehow you acquired a temporary work permit in the USA. Keep fighting to renew that work permit and go back to the the job you had if it's at all possible. Apply internationally if that's your cup of tea. Maybe somebody will bite. If they do you'll be the envy of more than a few pilots in Canada!
In the meantime maybe pare your expectations in Canada, clean up your resume, and start looking at 703/704 opportunities.
2months waiting for IOE due to their busy schedule
15 days on IOE
then Reserve till October
Anyways I see where the problem is. Thank you guys I really appreciate it.
I didn't look at the resume and cover letter but if it's filled with grammatical errors it would be well worth the money to have someone fix it up for you. Clean it up, reapply and a call will come.
