I think you should at least try it out. I have worked for the airlines in the USA for 7 years. The pay was never good, but being able to fly where I want when I want was great. I miss it! I was into shift trading, to get a longer span of days off.
The downside to airline work is... no retirement package, most US airlines anyway are in bankruptcy and most positions are hard laborous work.

It's an airline job. I really have no desire to do the actual job but the flight benefits that are included seem way too good to pass up.
I'm in a position where my businesses pretty much run themselves without me and I've got lots of free time.
I want to be able to do a lot of traveling to a lot of places that tickets would normally cost 2K round trip for me and my son.
I wouldn't mind working part time if I knew that I would be using thousands of dollars worth of flight benefits every month.
I'm about 5 minutes away from my local airport and one of the big airlines here is having a "job fair' tomorrow and they will be doing interviews and hiring on the spot. I'm 100% confident in my ability to nail any interview for a job that I'm qualified for.
My question here....
I've never had a resume and I guess I need one for this thing. Since I haven't had a real job in nearly 20 years, mine may look a little strange.
Does anyone know of a good resourse online that might help me create a killer resume?
Any input is appreciated.
