About Us

What We Do:

Checkedandset is ready to provide you with access to professional insight and advice on how to best represent yourself, your accomplishments, and your ambitions in this very competitive aviation marketplace. Founded by former major airline hiring manager Captain Charlie Venema, we provide three fundamental services to airline pilots seeking the next level of their career; Resume Review, Application Review, and Job Fair/Meet and Greet preparation.

We will work together to make sure that your resume and applications are accurate and reflect your accomplishments effectively.

 

How It Works:

At Checkedandset our process is simple, you pick the services that you want and schedule a session via our online availability tool. Be ready to attach your resume or application(s) so that we can look at them in advance of our time together.

All of our meetings are done online via a GoToMeeting and we will work directly with your provided documents. Internet access is required, and a microphone is helpful, but a call in number will be provided as well. Meet and Greet prep must be done via webcam and a call in number if necessary.
