I wanted to post a question to our members in Spain, whom are knowledgeable of the best process to go about seeking an airline management job in Spain. More specifically, what are the most common avenues for identifying the job openings for airlines in Spain? The individual airlines' websites do not offer much help (only ramp/customer facing positions).
Thanks and I look forward to any insight that could be provided.
Twinjets...if one fails, work the other one twice as hard!!!

In other words, it all depends on who you know!! Don't expect to get a good management position in Spain by applying online or sending your Resume to HR. It is very difficult to do so unless you know someone in the company or unless you have experience and education and you know a "head hunter".
But in todays economy, it will be more by networking!

In the smaller companies I would send a curriculum to personnel with a cover letter of your intentions and what your looking for.
For IB to be honest most jobs are covered in house. So to access a middle management job directly would be difficult. Don't believe those who say only people who know someone get in to the company. That was many years ago, I have many colleagues who work with me and didn't know anyone in IB when they started.
These are my principles but if you don't like them I have others

Also make sure you have work status in Spain, cause airlines nowadays are not willing to cover sponsorship anymore rarely anymore with exception for the Middle East where they still accept foreign management.
The sad news regarding US carriers is that they wont hire Station Managers for foreign stations unless they already have the legal right to work in that country, so that means I am out of luck trying to be Station Manager for something like US Airways at MBJ or LGW etc.
