c. You understand, that there are literally 3.000 + service members leaving the military every year in avionics or crew chiefs , there are just not any civilian jobs to move into.
D. There are 20,000 highly trained, experienced civilian airline maintenance workers that are out of work looking for a job, how can you compete with just 4 years experience ?

Mark asks…

Filling out job applications 3 months before I can start?

I’m filling out job applications but because of my current job, I can’t start until August. Is that good or bad when applying for another job?

New Niche Finder answers:

Depending on your line of work, it may be feasible or it may not be. For instance, in the vast majority of retail jobs, it would not be feasible to apply 3 months in advance because retailers want to hire people for immediate start dates. On the other hand, if you’re a white collar salaried worker, 3 months isn’t a big deal. I accepted a job offer in November for a start date in July because I’ve been in school full-time, but I also have friends who have switch companies and have been able to give their current employers 6 weeks notice.

Chris asks…

Is it that important to put your most recent employment when you apply for a job ?

My most recent job was only for two months. All my other jobs previous to that are five years or longer showing stability except for the two month job. Thank you for your help.

New Niche Finder answers:

Was the job intended to be for only 2 months? Did you quit, or were you fired? Are you still employed, just looking for better? What was your employment situation before you started there? Were you laid off and took what you could get?

I think it all depends on the circumstances. If you aquired some skills that will be beneficial, then it may be worth mentioning.
