Job Applications

From the Your Jobs section on the dashboard you will see a column for each of your job listings that says Applications. This shows you how many applicants there are for your job, and the green-blocked number is also the link that you click on to view and manage the applicants for that position.

Pilot Job Central Dashboard applicants view

Within the applicants view you are able to filter the list of applicants according to status and are also able to order the list of applicants based on newest first, name, or rating.

By clicking on the link highlighted by orange in the image above you may download your applicant data. You can then use this data in a separate application that supports the CSV file format if that better suites your workflow.

The buttons highlighted by green in the image above allow you to do several things with each applicant:

View message that applicant is allowed to attach when they apply to your position. This functions as a quasi cover letter.


This will open your email system with the applicant’s email address pre-filled in the ‘To’ field.


Attach a note on the applicant. This note is only visible to you.


Opens a panel where you can rate the applicant, delete the applicant from your job posting, or change the applicants status in relation to your job posting.


Bookmarks

On the dashboard page there is a section that shows your bookmarks. Employers are able to bookmark pilot applicants, and include notes with those bookmarks.

From your dashboard you are able to view, edit, and delete bookmarks.

Employers create bookmarks when viewing candidates. The bookmark feature is found towards the top of an applicant page.

By clicking on Bookmark This Resume a panel will open that will allow you to save the bookmark and any notes you want to attach to the bookmark.


Posting a Job

You may post a new job by either clicking on the Post Another Job button on your dashboard, or by clicking in the navigation bar on the Post a Job link.

When creating or editing a job some fields are required, with most fields being optional. Optional fields are indicated as such on the field label. Job postings that provide as much detail as possible are the most useful to would-be applicants that are searching.

When you have filled in all the fields for your job posting there is an option to submit or save a new job posting. If you save the posting you may then later access it via your dashboard.

After submitting a posting you will be presented with choosing a package to use for posting your job. You will be able to choose from a package which has already been purchased and use a credit from that package, or you may purchase a new package.

Newly registered employers will be able to post their first 3 job listings for free.

  • Desired Operation Type: the specific type of flying candidates are seeking. This is a multi-select filter where you can specify more than one value.
  • Hide Pilots Not Open to a New Position: this checkbox will hide those pilots that have profiles, but are not interested in a new job.

Clicking on the checkbox Filter Pilot Qualifications expands an additional panel that allows you to find pilots based on their qualifications. The following items are available for filtering.

  • Show Only Pilots With ATP checkbox will only show pilots that have an Airline Transport Pilot certificate.
  • Show Only Helicopter Pilots checkbox will only show pilots that have helicopter licenses/ratings.
  • Show Only Pilots With CFI checkbox will only show flight instructors.
