spitfire elite Interview Basics

You’ll learn how your opponent (the interviewer) trains, what they are looking for and how they will score your answers. Then, we’ll focus on how to be an active listener who can decipher the real intent of each question and how to develop impactful answers that will resonate with your interviewers.

Expand Your Aperture

With our virtual Precision Interview Coaching (PIC) and Flightdeck Leadership Exercise (FDLE) sessions, you’ll have the opportunity to sharpen your answers with a Spitfire Coach and a group of other clients working toward the same goal. In the PIC you’ll learn how to develop compelling, personal stories to answer any question. FDLEs teach you how to succeed in a situation-based interview where you’ll be “chair flying” a scenario with the interview team.

This stage of your training isn’t one and done. You’ll do lots and lots of reps to help you grow and develop the capability to compete at the highest level.

After you’ve practiced and can authentically answer any question at any time about any subject, it’s time to see if you’re ready. Next is your Pre-Mock Interview. This is you versus you. This is the moment to prove you have what it takes.

The Spitfire Elite Mock Interview Portal provides you a list of real interview questions from your target airline and records your answers. Participating in Pre-Mocks allows you to critique and modify not just your answers, but your body language and non-verbal cues.

In the final days prior to your interview, your Spitfire Coach will conduct your Mock 1v1 Capstone, a 90-minute Zoom interview that sharpens your skills and ensures you’re ready to crush any interview. You’ll also receive a digital recording of your Mock Capstone so that you can continue to prepare until the day of your interview.

PRECISION INTERVIEW COURSE

The Spitfire Precision Interview Course (PIC) is our platinum package that teaches you the science behind the interview questions and prepares you for the process step by step. You’ll learn how to anticipate what an interview is targeting and develop a collection of your best interview stories. Level up in weekly interview workshops with the best interviewers in the industry, and practice until you can’t get it wrong! Finish strong the week before your interview with our mock interview evaluation to simulate the environment you will see on your big day.

As part of this package, you also receive access to our Flight Deck Leadership, Military Transition, and Airline Specific content.

FLIGHT DECK LEADERSHIP

Many airlines use the FDLE to demonstrate a candidate’s ability to lead under stress. In the Spitfire Flight Deck Leadership (FDLE) Course, you’ll learn the skills and processes necessary to make clear, concise, confident, timely, and specific decisions in even the hardest of scenarios. Attend weekly, unlimited workshops to get the “reps” you need to succeed.

MILITARY TRANSITION

Deciding to leave active duty is a huge, and often difficult step. Whether you’re a couple years out and planning ahead, or you’ve been out for a short time, the Spitfire Military Transition Course, designed by former military-turned-civilian pilots, is designed to prepare you for a seamless transition from one uniform to the next. Our proven roadmap guides you through every step of the preparation process – from logbooks to DD-214s, navigating the application process, and preparing for the interview. Our 121 Basic Training Course teaches you how to speak and read like a commercial aviator. We train to ensure you have a comprehensive understanding of your new career. Our course ensures a smooth transition out of the military, a successful interview, and continued success through training at your airline of choice.

AIRLINE SPECIFIC CONTENT

Part of what makes Spitfire different from any other company claiming to offer comprehensive interview preparation is our Airline Specific Training Courses. These courses walk you through exactly what to expect from start to finish at your target airline. You’ll learn about the required paperwork, how to get there, where to stay, what to wear, and get step-by-step details on the interview process. We will provide you with the tools and knowledge you need to successfully get that CJO.

APPLICATION RESUME & REVIEW

The Spitfire Elite Application and Resume review is the first line of offense in your journey to your dream job! It is the “picture” that gets painted of you before anyone at your target company ever meets you in person.

Contrary to popular belief, human reviewers aren’t looking through all the applications and resumes on file. The truth is, before your application and resume are even seen by a person, they have to pass through an algorithm that screens viable candidates. At Spitfire Elite, we are dedicated to helping you identify issues in your resume that may cause algorithmic errors including spelling and acronym mistakes, job description phrasing, employment and training inconsistencies, and several other content points that may prevent your application from ever being reviewed. We want you to be the best version of yourself right from the start…and it starts with your application and resume!

hogan assessment

While skill sets, proficiency, and experience change over time, personality remains consistent. Hogan advertises that they can assess personality reliably and accurately, and that their assessments can uncover essential insights that resumes, interviews, and skill tests are unable to. Using a Hogan Assessment as part of the hiring process is intended to objectively compare people.

We offer both the Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI) and the Hogan Development Survey (HDS) as part of our packages. These assessments are currently used by United Airlines and UPS to help determine suitability to receive an interview.

Our packages include ACTUAL Hogan assessments, not practice exams with Hogan “like” questions, and include a personalized debrief of your ACTUAL Hogan reports with one of our Hogan certified executive coaches. Each of them has years of experience and has performed hundreds of Hogan coaching sessions.
