Less is More - Building a resume

Let me tell you a story. Being in NAL was the best learning time I had in my working life. I learnt so much. Within the first 6 months, I had done analysis in ansys, designing in solidworks and programming in visual basic and fortran. The pace continued. I loved the work i was doing.

Then a year passed and i decided to craft a resume and send it out there. The resume i created was decent and i thought it had all the right ingredients to get me lot of interview calls.

But all i got was empty email inbox. No acknowledgement, let alone an interview call. Thinking its the fault of my resume, i tweaked and tweaked it but none got me any call.

Baffled. I analyzed why others got the call and not me even when the resume clearly matched the requirement. All this while i continue building my skills.

Then one fine day i realized my mistake. Since i had worked on so many projects, my resume was bloated. In an effort to impress the recruiter that i know so much, i crammed all my work into the resume. This list baffled the receiver of the resume. It distracted him or her and since there were so many projects, it dimmed the effect of the one that matched the profile.

Fortunately i caught this mistake early and then divided all my project and its descriptions into 3 resumes. Now i began putting only those projects in the sent resumes that were relevant to the profile. Kept the resume brief and sharp.

This did the magic and this little shift had me called for 3 interviews.

Less is more, when it comes to building your resume to get an interview call.

Brand Value !

Further to earlier post Let it shine, I request you to please not degrade the brand value of Aeronautical Society of India. Let me share few points which I have noticed and are effecting the brand value of AeSI.
1. Quality of Resumes
2. Even though profile doesn't match the job, than too applying for it.
(Example : The job is related to Ansys with 2 years exp. & the HR is receiving applications of Avionics freshers.)
3. Just attaching the resume and sending it without mentioning anything like the job code, a short summary of your profile or a cover letter.
4. Using irrelevant font and size in the resume.
5. Size of the resume sometimes exceeds 6000 Kb.

Trust me above issues not only just make a recruiter hyper but also degrade the brand value of Aeronautical Society of India. We work a lot in creating opportunities and when such mistakes are in front of us, then it really makes us to think that Are we doing right ?

Let's make a commitment with you that you'll always use the right approach while sending the resume to any organization. The way we approach to a recruitment officer entirely differs from the way we approach to a project leader in case if freshers jobs aren't available. Use the power of communication in such a way that it will allow the other person to think at least once that whether I should recruit or recommend him/her as a trainee or not ? Let the recruitment officer know that you have a passion to learn new technology (in case of a trainee) and you are looking for a long term career.
But How ?
It's what we call power of written communication, power of cover letter and so on..

Google the same on Internet, there are various websites available & I'm confident that you will shake hand with us in every possible way to promote the brand value of Aeronautical Society of India.

Getting a degree from Aeronautical Society of India means you have a special talent and you reflect a shadow of perfectness. Let's bring the perfectness in this aspect as well. As someone said that "Don't see it as something you are sending but see it from the receiver prospective."

Best Wishes !

Job Opening !

Let it shine

Sun finally broke through here yesterday; bringing some light relief from rain.

But the quality of resumes that I continue to see shows its still gloomy for the resumes.

The formatting is in shambles. Placement of the skills and experience cheeky and relevance to the job profile non existent.

Spend some time on the resume. Don't see it as something you are sending but see it from the receiver prospective.

If reading your resume only prompts him to draw out his umbrella, then the resume is worth not sending at all.

let it shine. let it raise his curiosity. let it make him meet you. That should be your goal.

Go INDIA, Go !!!

Indigo, India's largest low cost carrier, ordered 150 A320neo and 30 A320s which is the second largest order as of today.

It clearly indicates about the growth of Indian Aviation in the coming decade. There will be plenty of openings in various segments. Various market researches have already proved that India will pick up a high growth rate in maintenance segment.

Marching orders of DGCA's chief !

In a very sudden development, the Civil Aviation Ministry gave marching orders to the DGCA chief EK Bharat Bhushan on Tuesday evening with immediate effect. The 1979 batch Kerala cadre IAS officer had  got six months extension just a week ago.

He handed over charges to Prashant Narain Sukul, a Joint Secretary in the Ministry, who would also be holding the position as an additional charge, they said.

There was no official word on the reasons for his removal, but there were speculation that DGCA notice to Kingfisher to ground its operation for breach of safety norms, may have led to his exit.  Mr. Bhushan had also issued notices to Air India and Kingfisher Airlines to pay dues to their employees.

As the Director General of Civil Aviation, he brought in stringent measures to prevent airlines from compromising on safety matters on account of their financial trouble.

He had bluntly told loss-making Air India and Kingfisher Airlines to pay up the employees’ dues. Both the airlines have defaulted on timely payment of salaries and allowances for several months. Mr. Bhushan had said that safety could be adversely affected by a demotivated staff, particularly a pilot, an engineer or a cabin crew if they were not paid their salaries and dues.

During his 20-month tenure as the head of the aviation regulatory body, 57-year-old he handled a series of major cases of flouting of aviation rules, including the fake pilots scam and fudging of records by flying schools.

Mr. Bhushan was actively involved in the Mangalore air crash investigation and had brought in big changes by computerising licensing examinations for pilots and engineers.

Ministry sources were tight-lipped on what prompted the sudden move.

Dear Fellow alumnus,

Sub: Letter to Ministry of HRD for granting equivalence of completion of section "A" & "B" of the Aeronautical Society of India to a Bachelor's Degree in Aeronautical Engineering awarded by Indian university

This has reference to the letter received from Shri RK Rustgi, Secretary (EXAM), AeSI.

AeSI HQ is preparing a paper for submission on the above subject matter and has requested AeSIAA to provide help in preparing the list of AeSI Graduates occupying important positions in different industries/R&D organisations.

In this connection I request you all to help AeSIAA is mapping the existing alumnus in each organisation we know.

This will go a long way in securing a Bachelor's Degree instead of Equivalent to Bachelor's Degree awarded to all of us.

Mr. Kuldeep Kumar employee of Aetos, Bangalore and member of Executive Committee, AeSI ALUMNI ASSOCIATION has been entrusted with the task of compiling the database for submitting to AeSI HQ, NEW DELHI

It will be appreciated if you help Kuldeep in collecting the details of AeSI GRADS working in your organisation.

Don't waste your time! Move on...

An interesting post is brewing at the ouraesi group.

I want to repost it here for all your comments and discussion.

The points are practical distillations of the person who posted them, but I don't completely agree with him.

Career path is never a straight line. Even for an IIT graduate it's always zigzag. And no two person have the same trajectories in career. So I will take advice, although practical with a pinch of salt.

Your comments as always are welcome.

So here we go...

Hi friends,

My humble request to u all

If you are just now started AeSI, Better to move to something else If you are halfway in AeSI, try to finish as soon as possible.

Try to get more than 60%,other regular Engg guys ( Below Avg) will come with 70 to 80 % marks.

Very few company will be ready to take AesI Guys.but not good salary, no increment.. (ex: Infot.. h)

AesI wont help you for your life if you have taken more years or Not able to finish quickly or dont have min 60% Look for some other plan for life.

The Best thing is finish try to get into HAL,NAL,ISRO as a scientist
(Full of politics,Nonsense. but this is one of the best option) then move to co like HoneyWell
Gate -> IIT-> Look for some oppertunity by hiding AesI with the help of MTech Ex Honey well or fly somewhere else

In any job you get better hike, when you jump from one company to other.
But with AeSI you can not jump easily,so your growth is very much limited.

Please think about it and dont recommend AeSI even for your enemies

Any help related to CATIA and Automation in CATIA V5 feel free to mail me..

Even after 6yrs exp and 1.5+ onsite AIRBUS France & Germany My Pain continues

Thanks & Regards

LinkedIn : A supplement to the resume !!

The primary question while updating your LinkedIn Profile during your unemployment days is what to mention in current position and headline sections of your profile. It is important to have a positive impression on whosoever happens to read your profile even if you are unemployed. Equally important is to stay honest about everything you want to write about yourself. Hence, the choice of writing your profile headline and current position should be carefully selected.
‘Open to opportunities’ is the phrase suggested by professional people which you may include in your profile during your unemployment.

Examples for your LinkedIn headline

Headline is the first thing the reader of your profile comes across. Some Headline examples are mentioned below to give you a clearer view of what to include in your profile while you are jobless.
• Looking for Work in Aircraft System
• Experienced Ansys Professional looking for New Opportunity
• Marketing expert Exploring New Options
• Fresh Graduate Looking for Work
• Market Analyst Seeking Work
• Administrative Assistant Needs a Job
If you have recently left a job and now you are looking for a new one then you may update the status field in your LinkedIn Profile telling the same. Some examples are; “Mayur is looking for a challenging position in DO-178 and abc, do you know someone who needs staff in such technology?”. Or “Mary is looking for a marketing job. Let her know of any good opportunities you know of”. In this way, a simple status update informs all of your LinkedIn connections about your unemployment and you might get instant help on that.
Keep your LinkedIn profile updated all the time and there are always chances that someone in your network knows someone who is hiring people matching your professional profile.
My Experience about LinkedIn :
I've been to several job portals but found LinkedIn as the most helpful network. Even I got an interview call from a non-aviation company just because the HR was interested in my profile. Most of the big brands have their separate dedicated page for careers at LinkedIn. Besides it, recommendation matters a lot to have a better understanding of your profile.

Resumes and First Impressions

Today I received 3 resumes. As I was scanning them I saw a really unprofessional one.

That resume looked most inconsistent, less tight and thin on content.

Without looking at the college, I thought this one might be from an unknown college. And to my surprise found it came from someone who has AeSI as his BE and some unknown college in M tech.

I felt sad. Among the 3 resumes, his shined the most, in the WRONG way.

That lack of proper presentation, inconsistent fonts, paragraph spacing and use of big and small letters just ruined the guys chances.

As I showed the 3 resumes to the client, I saw his face crib as he got to this resume.

The guy was rejected even before the resume was read. That's the first impression.

After deliberation and reading through, it was decided that maybe this guy will be considered last IF the other two failed.

Whatever marks you get, how many papers you publish or whatever be your achievements be, first impressions counts.

Don't be the IF guy and crafting a good resume is the first step to be not being one.

5 steps to master something

It's just after exam time and a perfect time to add some new skills. It maybe learning a new programming language, an analysis tool like Ansys or just plain painting.

Here are 5 steps that I have always found useful in getting those new skills. Give them a try and be sure to add your comments if you do something interesting.

Pick techniques
Mastering something is knowing the little techniques and getting natural with them. When you begin a new language or tool, aim to master techniques. Master the simple first and the complex one will automatically follow.

Don't hop around
Learning a new language, tool etc is all about putting in the time. Going on after the initial burst of energy has dimmed. Keep the patience and keep doing the task and learning tiny bits one at a time.

Don't be a multitasker
Let your laptop, smartphone be the multi tasker. We humans are linear and single tasking is the best that we do. So avoid multitasking. Learn one thing and learn it well.

Keep things separate
Just like you don't mix eating with sleeping. Don't mix learning with more learning. Keep a balance. Separate your work and play time. The better you do it, the more productive you will get in both the areas.

Exhaust a model and go deep
Learnt a feature, used a model. Don't stop there. Keep exploring that new feature. Delve deep into the feature you just learnt. Once you get the feeling that you have learnt all there is to learn. Take a break and again go deep. This is the zone where real insights sprouts!

Hope you will try some of this in your learning. If you do try, do let us know which one worked for you..

Good luck!!
