Default Employment Duties on Airline Apps

Quick question for those who have used Airline Apps When you input your duties under employment history, did you basically copy and paste your billet description from your FitReps/OPR or did you break it down to civilian speak? Thanks for information.

Or did you just put one long period of military duty and count that as one employment since IT is the same employer.

Definitely do not list it as one employer. List every assignment separately. As for the description, put in whatever sounds the best to sell yourself.

There's a better than average chance the person reading your resume will be some mid twenty year old HR rep with zero mil experience... that's your audience. Write it as such using buzz words like leadership, supervisor, management, teamwork, etc etc etc.

It specifically says to put each assignment.

Along the same lines, how about breaking them out by OPR? Most people have 3-5 OPRs per "assignment" where they change jobs on each OPR. Shows "progression" or the military's insane turnover policy.
Thanks!

For Navy guys - In terms of "leadership experience" on airline apps, does anyone know if airlines care about or heavily favor "boat tour" jobs like shooter, TAO, ANAV, etc? Do things like that get you "more points" on app scores?

MM/YY-MM/YY SQUADRON/BOAT City, State
Job title: words. Job title: words.

Lather rinse repeat.

Every job has meaning. You're joining corporate America. That disassociated tour, IA, whatever was a leadership roll of XXX sailors, responsible for $xyz millions of dollars, supervising, leading, mentoring, etc etc etc. The pilot at your interview wants to know if he/she can share a cockpit with you and whether you can fly. The HR rep wants to know that you're well rounded, can play well with others, and will represent the brand. Everything you've done has value to someone. Your challenge is to articulate it using plain language to someone that doesn't speak military lingo.

Listing every OPR is stupid and will clutter your app/resume. It needs to fit on one page, and be short enough to not be a chore to read and long enough to tell your story.

Have a question about my app. I was the Chief of Flight Safety for my wing, so should I check Director of Safety? Or is this reserved for someone who sat as Chief of Safety.
