If you're looking for work, train your relatives to job hunt for you. Teach them the basic components of your qualifications, and teach them what to ask.
I am proud to say that my mother managed to determine that her pilates instructor's receptionist's husband is the chief pilot of an air operator that is looking for pilots matching my mother's version of my qualifications. My mother even left an intelligible message on my answering machine, including the aircraft type, the company name and the contact information. Mrs. Meerkat now has my resume, and will be showing it to Steve Meerkat.
Way to go mom! I will now stop mocking you for all the times you have told me you met someone whose name you didn't obtain, who recommended I apply to "Air something, or maybe it was something Air."
And I got a telephone call from the Air Canada training department. Really. Air Canada called me. That's really fun to say. But I haven't got the heart to tease you too badly. It was a friend of a friend returning my call to help me out with some information on requirements and strategy. I now have it directly from the hiring decision makers at Air Canada: it's not lying if you leave some of your experience and hours off your resume.
