These days a lot of companies use software to sort through thousands of documents, these programs look for key words that are relevant to the role and having a professional service to help can fit you to the job you are after.
The corporate aviation industry is one that still requires photographs we cannot express enough that these need to be professional. In an age of Social Media, we still see ‘insta shots’ and ‘selfies’ these are just unacceptable. The right set of photos which include a headshot and full-length shot may be the first thing a recruiter sees and can influence where your C.V end up in the pile. Keep it classy, no glamour shots and the right attire you are not competing for a modelling job you are competing for a Professional role in Corporate Aviation.
