If you are in the job market (and you definitely will some day be in the job market!) you will discover that sending out resumes and using the "shotgun approach" will probably not work very well.

Virtually every job I've ever had, other than the Air Force, was obtained through networking:

Networking with Bill Arnott got me my interview with Clay Lacy Aviation

Networking with Bill Arnott got me my interview with United

Networking with Gordie Cohen got me my interview with Lockheed

I got my job teaching at Metro by walking in to the Aviation Department and chatting with the Department Head. No networking. But I got my job (at the same time) teaching for Embry-Riddle through networking with Jim Savard, who had used my B727 training videos and recommended me.

I got my job interview at FlightSafety International by networking with my friend Harv LaFollett.

I suspect someone recommended me for my job at Jet Airways.

I got my job interview as an IOSA auditor with ARGUS Pros through networking with former Denver Chief Pilot Joe Swenson.

I got my interview at Boeing through a former Jet Airways pilot who hand-carried in my resume.

I got my telephone interview at Omni Air International through the recommendation of another Boeing instructor.

I got my interview with United (this time) through networking with former RFT guest Nick Hinch, who works at United.
