wbrady755 Posted November 10, 2016 Report Share Posted November 10, 2016 Welp, CFII complete over here. Now the real challenge starts: Finding a job in a place thats worth living in, where I wouldn't be stuck flying 90 hours a year. So, I've come to the conclusion that a road trip is best. Drive to every place in the region, give them a hard copy, and schmooze. But here is the problem: How do you get in contact with these people prior to visiting? Ive emailed a few ("Hello X I will be visiting your area on 12 DEC, I was looking to meet up with you and talk about the school..."), but haven't gotten any significant responses. So it comes down to networking... The "its not what you know, its who you know" conundrum. But outside of my small school, I really don't know anyone. How does a guy try to build up a network when he's at the first floor? Ive got a great network in my old job (its easy when you're working), but nothing in my new career.Any tips on the road trip? Scheduling, visits, etc?Have you seen anyone come in for an in-person resume drop off who made a serious gaffe? Thanks yall Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
