I am a school teacher with my PPL. I am going to begin ATP either in February or June. If I leave in February then I would leave midway through the school year, which might look bad on a resume. I am probably going to leave in June so that I would not have any blemish on my Resume–which would be important if anything falls through with the regional and I need a job.
My question: I am wondering if that 6 month delay would decrease my chance of getting a job with the airlines? I’ve been reading the thread a lot and I know you say there are no guarantees and things are always changing. I figure it would be two years of flight instructing before I get hired, so I’m not sure if that 6 months would be a major detriment to me finding a job with the airlines.
I figure that I could still complete my written test for my ratings during that six month period. Let me know what you think. Thanks!
