2f13ccfOne of the hardest parts about getting a new job is not always finding the job, but getting through the interview. It can be scary, nerve racking, and you often only get one chance to make a good impression. Wouldn’t it be great if there was someone out there that could help you with this process, to give you tips on what to do and what not to do?

Judy Tarver is just that kind of person. For more than 30 years Judy has been helping people get jobs in aviation. From being Manager of Pilot Recruitment at American Airlines, to VP of Global Strategies at Future and Active Pilot Advisors (FAPA), Judy helps people to prepare for interview questions, how to dress to look professional, and advises interviewees to be themselves and be honest.

Judy and I Discuss:

  • Being prepared for an interview, your personality is not all you need
  • How to handle tough questions
  • Disclosure of blemishes on your personnel or criminal record
  • Dressing professionally
  • Being yourself
