Qlink minimum requirements - spelling

Strangely high number of spelling mistakes for such a sophisticated bunch. Check out the errors on this page: Minimum Requirements.


Maybe it's a test? If you point them out in the interview...
  • QantasLinkPIlot
  • Tainee Program
  • Teriary studies
  • Australian Commerical Pilot
  • Pilot Lcence
and that's just the one page, I didn't check anything else.

"Maintaining exacting standards of technical competency and professional discipline."

(Unless commercial pressure dictates otherwise)

and they say at the top of the application form that filling it out correctly forms part of your assessment

It's to be expected. The average education level within the aviation community in Australia is pretty poor.

I knew people in the RAAF who seemed to autodump their spelling ability at SGT level.

Did you notice that if you look through the document and match up the missing letters - it spells...
"this is a crock".

It is not limited to spelling; their grammatical knowledge seems also to be questionable. The "teriary" studies "is highly desirable". I is impressed - since when did Ali G take over at QLink recruitment?

And yeah, I got me teriary studdies, just ask da hostess bitches."

Devil

And whilst the subject is on spelling......

Rant mode ON

Why do so many PPRuNers confuse the words
to, too and two
roll and role
lose and loose
of and off
there, their and they're
breaks and brakes


Or make such a classic mistake as saying
''It could of happened'' instead of the correct 'could have' or 'could've.'

And don't get me started on the misuse of the apostrophe, such as using it to indicate a plural!!

And that's not to mention the non usage of capital letters and punctuation!!

Sorry Moderators, but it finally got to me! As the cartoon Sailor Popeye used to declare, just before he reached for his spinach (and ironically it is also incorrect English),

''That's all I can stands, I can't stands no more!!''

Rant mode OFF

Oh boy the spelling police are out in force now
One has to wonder what sort of life these "literary officers" have?
Does it make a pilot fly safer/better being able to win a prize for correct spelling? Hardly!
We all know QL want HSC subjects just to be a Dash driver, now we know what really for, so they can read PPRuNe & see just whom is paying attention !!!

Friutflyboy, it's called communication. Pilots need to be good communicators.

Pinky,

If you keep picking on the level of grammatical ability of the posters in this forum, you and I are going to have a violent agreement!

Oh, by the way, never more than three points of ellipsis and keep a space between the last word and the first point, for example,

"And whilst the subject is on spelling ...".

Thanks

Walrus

Gibberish

It's not just spelling. Some posts on here are just plain meaningless gibberish.
Precise, unambiguous verbal and written communication is essential in aviation.

....This is what happens when you out-source basic work loads to our mates over in Mumbai

You honestly think that HR were driven () enough to write up the particulars on a webpage. I mean come on boys and girls, GD can pay wage in way of Rice weight to get these things done - why should he pay cash to get a simple website written up...

and a big to you Mr G. D.
