Wondering who uses climb to 350.com please ?

I'd like to ask you a question regarding how good it is.

Also will let you know about a great website I use for Pilot Jobs .

Thank you very much,


paul

Do a search, a lot of people here have used it in the past and this has been discussed before.

I check it every day, I think it's a great site. I've talked to perspective employers found on that site but no luck with jobs. I do know a guy who found a pretty cushy job on a lear jet through that site though.

I've actually had a couple different outfits contact me about my resume on climbto350. They were both low end freight, not what I'm after right now, but what the hey, at least somebody reads it.

Used it. 90% of the jobs were also on planejobs & other sites. After I got on at eagle, I let it expire... If there was a lifetime membership for a hundy or something like that, I'd buy it.

How useful for someone with 800 TT and 100 Multi?

With 800 tt I wouldn't be holding my breathe, but you never know.

I found a job with PlaneJobs (pretty nice one) and my current job was on climbto350 after I was hired (needed 3 pilots). I've received several calls from my resume being on 350 and do like the site, although I am letting my subscription run out until I need a job again.....The yearly membership is much better than the monthly, much better. Generally, these jobs are lower end but I've had a couple strong leads.

Good Luck to ya.

I got a call from two frieght ops - Freight Runners Express, and Baron - without applying to them.

The one's I applied to (more than 10) only one called me back - they had been inundated with resumes.

I have found better leads elsewhere, and there is an adage that says all the good jobs in aviation can be found through word of mouth.

From my experience, you would be very lucky to get a call or call back from anyone with 800TT 100ME. I use it more to see who is always hiring (esp. those not growing), and to keep on top of competitive minimums.

I've been hired off climbto350, and have had probably a dozen offers or interview offers that I turned down. I've found in my limited time in the industry that even when you have a good job, don't ever stop sending out resumes or looking...you never know how long this job will last or what might come up in the mean time.

I maintain a subscription to Climbto350, and I think it's worth it. I'm not necessarily going to get hired or looking to get hired off it, but you never know, and it doesn't hurt to apply to everything anyway.

I was wrongfully terminated by an employer, who reinstated me when the error was discovered. The entire firing/re-hiring episode lasted a weekend and a day, but in that time, I had three offers from different employers. I also had prepared to file for unemployment, which required me to maintain a job search and keep a record...climbto350 satisfied this requirement, too.

Get a subscription to Trade A Plane. The job listings have dwindled somewhat in recent years, but they're still there, especially for low time pilots. I had my first corporate jet job out of Trade A Plane, and I still have the ad from that periodical glued in my logbook next to a picture of the airplane.
