All pilots have been taught the importance of using written checklists. They become a part of their standard operation, a part of their uniform approach. A mindful focus point on what is about to happen. A key to a safe takeoff and landing.
Most pilots use written checklists, while others don't because they feel they are experienced enough, and/or too busy, and don't need them.
Flow patterns and mental checklists are often used as well but do not substitute a written Normal Checklist on takeoff and landing. It is a good idea to say it aloud and refer to a written checklist to make sure you don't miss anything.
The preflight check even begins before the pilot gets to the aircraft. It starts with doing a preflight check on themselves and making sure they are fit to fly.
The walkaround is also very important
Are both wings attached to the aircraft?
Do you see any flat tires?
Is there a crack running down the fuselage?
Then they enter the aircraft and start preparing the cockpit before takeoff.
This kind of approach is very applicable to job search, to get into gear and shape for job hunting. It is vital to prepare for your career takeoff.
How useful would it be for you to have a tailormade checklist for your job development?
A checklist that you apply if you are looking for a job and you don't know exactly where to begin and what boxes you need to tick to carry out a successful recruitment process.
