Some advice from the editor Anne McKinney: "Industries are often cyclical, and downturns do occur in most sectors. So it's important to know how to transfer skills to 'greener pastures' when employment opportunities in aviation and travel are scarce. Whether you seek to get 'in the front door' of the aviation and travel industry or are exiting 'through the back door' on your way to other types of employment, this book will be a valuable aid."Praise for other books in the Real-Resumes Series:"Distinguished by its highly readable samples." - Library Journal"These excellent new guides don't just provide the usual coverage on how to write a resume. They provide industry-specific examples, industry-specific tips and cautions, and industry-specific strategies based on real-world resumes. Since many technical types aren't writers, this comes as a special gift; select a winning format, plug in your background specs, and away you go. It's that easy--with Real-Resumes in hand."-- The Midwest Book ReviewTestimonials from people who have successfully used this book:"The resumes and cover letters in the Real-Resumes books are easy to personalize. I created my own door-opening resume using these samples." A Linthrop"I couldn't figure out how to reduce my resume to one page until I saw the great samples in the Real-Resumes book. Now my resume gets me in the door." J. Porquiro"When the aviation industry could no longer offer me the employment opportunities I was seeking, I had no clue about how to make a career change. I knew my resume was critical in introducing me, and the Real-Resumes samples solved my problem." S. Estabos"I wanted to become a travel attendant, but I didn't know how to show that my skills were transferable to the aviation industry. Thanks to Real-Resumes, I got in the door and landed my first job in the aviation industry." L. Snider
