JetBlue's website has a Fax number as well as an address for sending resumes. Besides completing the online application, has anyone sent them a physical resume to their address at Kew Gardens? I realize that they pride themselves by catering to the computer-savy applicant, but was wondering if anyone has had any success/feedback with the archaic method of sending a "paper" resume.

Thanks

Do you pronounce it Pecan or Pecahn?

I interviewed on December 12th and I only used the online application with a pasted resume (make sure it is left justified and .txt file when you cut and paste). No one I talked with mentioned having sent a resume via snail mail, and I know of several others who definitely did not send in a paper copy. I'd say sending one would be overkill, but if it makes you feel better have at it. I agree that they are leading edge with their use of computers, but they are definitely not the type of organization that would hold it against you for sending one in.

Good luck,

Resume Update

Hello,

I've sent resume updates via email to dean.melonas@jetblue.com but haven't received acknowledgement. Maybe they'll be impressed with my persistence. :mad:

I recently e-mailed Dean Meloans and this is what he replied:

"Here's the deal. The next available round of interviews will take place in April as everything until then is full. We are also in the process
of replacing our existing web application with a new one. This will require all applicants to resubmit data into the new system in order to stay active because the two systems unfortunately don't interface.

Be on the lookout for an announcement of the new application system via the JetBlue website in mid February. One great feature of the new system is the ability for applicants to update data anytime online.

We conduct web searches for competitive candidates periodically and invite the strongest Pilots in for interviews based on those searches."

He attached a word document which specifically says they "do not accept resumes in lieu of web applications."

But I don't think it will hurt-

BTW, it looks like it'll be Mike Barger doing the interview on Monday, not Dave Barger. Mike is the Director of Training.

What in the world is a "Web Search"?

How does jetBlue do a "web search"?

Do they go to Google and enter "Highly qualified pilot"?

Just asking.

Publisher, that's being disingenuous, don't you think? I know you want to hawk your product and imply that JB uses AEPS, but that's out of line. JetBlue uses an internal application service, and no other. The only way to get hired at Jetblue is to fill out the web-based application on the JetBlue.com site.

"Web-search" isn't a terribly accurate term, but it's somehow come into common use. It refers to doing a database search of the web application results to determine who will be on the interview invite list. That's all it means. It definitely does *not* mean going to a third party, such as AEPS, to get referrals for candidates.

BTW, you can fax resumes, but I seriously doubt they do anything for you. This airline tries to be paperless, you see. Sending paper in spite of instructions to the contrary isn't a very good idea. Adding to Dean's workload and paperwork content doesn't seem to me to be the best way to get on his good side. Fortunately, the interview list is generated without regard for this kind of thing. But that also means that sending a resume won't help you get on that list either. You either have the requisite experience or you don't, and that's determined from the web application. Don't bother to send more paper.

sorry if I did not understand the question.... Yesterday on AvCareer.TV, he was clear that they wanted the online application filled out as that is how they did things.

AEPS has had an excellent relationship with JB from the beginning. They were our first feature in AviationCareer.net and they requested reprints of the article for the employee pack. I sent them the disk but do not know if they were able to print them as they wanted.

They have supported AEPS job fairs and do search our database for various reasons. Even if they find someone there, they wil be told to go find the online app form on JB site.

There are jobs other than pilot jobs that they do post or search for.

Did not mean to make a big deal of it
