All hiring information is available somewhere, there are just sites that put the information together. There is NO NEED to pay for what you can get for free. Maybe MIACapt should change his name to MIAAirlineCEO for your lack of ability to handle money.

"Checklist for success" was a great book, in 1997. Since then WFFF has been nothing but a site with outdated gouge. Of course Cheryl Cage is charging for the stuff you can get for free elsewhere- United isn't hiring and her $300, decade old, prep can't pay the bills anymore.

Wow, your response is rather inappropriate. (IMO)

The guy was just stating his opinion, obviously frustrated with the state of websites that target pilot's looking for employment. True, you are also stating your opinion, but your intentions don't appear to be helpful in any way.

Rather personal don't you think?

I realize that there are many posts on here for websites. Has anyone paid to use willflyforfood or findapilot?

Also does anyone know of 1-2 sites out of all of these lists that has lots of listings...or as many listings as these pays sites show me but dont let me get into?

This article talks about using LinkedIn and Xing as a platform for professional networking. It is geared towards IT, financial services, media and education, but less so for aviation or pilot jobs. So, if you are thinking of changing out of aviation, you might want to consider these. Studies have shown that many jobs are not listed or published, but gotten through word of mouth.

Most jobs online posted for pilots are for guys much farther along in there career. To find an entry level job right now would be rare, cause there are enough guys on the street where they can just pass them to the first guy that comes along.

I have had very good luck with www.willflyforfood.com but I'm not sure what your experience level is. There are not many low time opportunities anymore.

P.S. It's totally free too
Nathanexplosion, can you please post the exact web address for Airline Pilot Jobs site? For some reason the link was not taking me to the website. Thanks!
