Awesome Aviation Resume!

As someone who is trying to break into the aviation industry, I’ve been spending a lot of time working on my resume. It’s tricky business: you want to be eye-catching but not annoying, brief but not understated, boastful without bragging. Resume writing is a tricky business.

If I was an HR guy, or a helo operator looking for a qualified pilot in the Pacific Northwest, I’d be on the phone in a second. And if YOU are a helicopter operator in the Pacific Northwest who needs a skilled, intelligent helicopter pilot, you should call Ms. Sargent right away!
