When beating down doors isn’t working…
No one, including myself, ever said that becoming a corporate flight attendant was easy. In fact, can be just the opposite. After investing in trainings, and resume building, networking, and repeatedly visiting every FBO and Jet operator in your geographic area.. What is there left to do?
Crew staffing agencies could be your answer. Companies such as: Aircare Crews and Jet Professionals are two of the best. Of course you have to go through a process with them as well, but once you are accepted, you WILL work. Keeping the jobs and getting repeat clients will be up to you and your job performance of course..
So what do these agencies do?
First, they are a resource for clients looking to staff planes with full time and contract flight attendants and pilots. Their clients are looking for “ the best of the best”, and these staffing companies is often where they go for this.
Second, They help YOU get a job and make it less tedious for you than the process of making call after call, sending email after email to operators, etc. They have your full profile and will fit you to the right opportunity.
What are they looking for in an Business aviation professional?
The staffing companies need to maintain a reputation to stay in business and keep their clients. This means that they will not just accept anyone that is looking for a job. You must have approved safety training, a clean background, drug free, experience in outstanding customer service, communication skills ,and an overall great attitude. ( just to name the basics).
What happens if they turn you down?
If you are brand new with limitations in the above requirements, chances are good that they will turn you down. But they will also advice you to get what you need and then return down the road for consideration. If this happens, don’t be discouraged. And it doesn’t mean you wont get a job without them. However, the requirements that they have are pretty standard to what any corporate jet company may be looking for.
My advice, Take a look at their websites and make sure you have “ your ducks in a row” before applying anywhere. When you do, you will have a much better chance at landing a job in this amazing industry!
