Even with a wealth of technical experience, many pilots find the pilot selection process frustrating. In addition to technical experience today’s airline pilot must also demonstrate highly developed leadership, decision-making and communication skills. Discussing one’s abilities in these introspective areas requires a different kind of preparation than most pilots have experienced.
This is where Checklist for Success comes in. Written by Cheryl Cage, whose name has become synonymous with exceptional career guidance, Checklist takes you from application through to the interview. Cheryl not only offers a step-by-step interview preparation program, but illustrates her points clearly by stepping aside often to reflect on her own experiences in counseling aspiring pilots, furloughed pilots, and career changers. The program Cheryl provides in Checklist will help lower your stress level and shorten the time it takes to reach your highest career goals.
