This came across my email today. I was asked to paraphrase the posting and upload the information here as the operator is seeking a fair amount of response so as to hire the right individuals.

"...Growing company in upstate New York seeks two individuals for two openings within their expanding flight department.

1. Technician

2. Captain

Technician will have experience midsized turbojet aircraft.

Captain will have experience on turbojet aircraft in both domestic and international operations.

The usual medical/dental/401k/matching, etc....

I believe the openings are also advertised locally as blind-ads, but I haven't seen them yet.

Please reply and attach resume to:

corporateflightresources@gmail.com


Good luck folks.

A gmail account?

I don't want to sound like an a**, but it just seems like most scams use some type of free mail. If they are legit, they will have an account that atleast has their carriers name or their website name. That isn't to say that this is a scam or that there aren't scams that have a website. But it sure seems like there is a high incidents of scams with free mail accounts.

Some use free/generic emails to keep their company confidential.

Legitmate operators have legitimate HR departments. This company must have a bad reputation do resort to blind ads.

Actually Hugh, the company has quite a good reputation as I know a couple of the folks over there. But I don't make their policy. They've placed the ads and I am sure they will find some excellent candidates.

Look at it this way Hugh...since you have it figured out, you don't have to respond. :)

Fly safe to Sydney...

I already have I job that I ain't given up for nothing. I just want people to be aware of scams. This may not be a scam. To be sure, send them nothing more than a resume with information they can get in a phone book. I know some dip sh*ts put their SSN on their resume. I know because I've reviewed some of those resumes. I was trying to remind people to be smart.

I guess it's their prerogative not to say where, but it would sort out some of those who may not want to move there. I have specific places in NY which would be OK, anywhere else would be a waste of my time and theirs.

I saw an Excel position posted several times for upstate New York. Could be that one, but don't know if I could find it again to post here. As far as using a private email, I don't blame them. If they divulge their identification, they'd be swamped with every 500 hour wonder out there (no offense to the regional world ;)).

We posted for a position on monster last Nov. We didn't include phone numbers, addresses, or employees names and we were all swamped with phone calls, emails and pilots walking in with resumes. I don't blame them for using a Gmail account to collect resumes.
Also, how much time would it take to attach a resume with a canned cover letter for a possible job? I've done it in less then two minutes. If they respond then ask them where they're located. If it doesn't suit you then thank them and say "no thanks."
Besides if you're unemployed you probably have plenty of time.

Just my $.02

In today's 9.4% unemployment rate more like 5000 to 10000 hrs wonders that probably flown the space shuttle and still can't get no job!!

...................

Well since the topic is brought up about scams, here is a question for all you out there unfortunately unemployed.

What kind of precautions you boys and girls are taking when sending your resumes out to an employer and further more when asked to send copies of your personal information to then find out that you were not selected? Since some these employers like to hide their company name?

Not Much you can do really, most of the info they ask for can be accessed thru the FAA website with the info that is on your CV.
Most prospective employers just want to fill the squares, nothing more.
Cheers!

FWIW Vulcan Flight Ops (Paul Allen) always uses gmail addresses.

It goes without saying your pilots license number should not be your SSN.
