As the airline industry continues to grow and expand, opportunities for employment become available in a number of areas. Whether you desire to become a pilot, a flight attendant, a manager or work in maintenance, you must prepare yourself for the job interview.

You should spend as much time perfecting interview skills as you would in preparing your resume and cover letter. Familiarize yourself with aviation lingo as a means of further perfecting these skills.
