ven if you've got the right training and the drive, finding a job is no easy task. After Madeleine Schneider-Weiffenbach, a licensed pilot, came up short in her job search for a flying gig, she took matters into her own hands.
Now, she's more successful than she could ever imagine.
After an exhausting job search failed to yield a gig, she decided to try a new line of work that was WAY different.
Well, there are some similarities. As we know, to be a pilot, you have to love to travel, right?
Madeleine’s certainly got wanderlust in her blood.
So she took her love of travel and used it to create a travel blog and an Instagram account under the name "Pilot Madeleine."
With those two resources, she’s letting the world join her on her adventures around the world.
Doesn’t look too bad, does it? (I’m talking about the ocean view, btw.)
Here she is in Bora Bora, recreating one of those very familiar "pulling my loved one forward to adventure" shots.
Out of frame holding her hand is her boyfriend, who joins her on the adventures.
(I think he might actually have the better gig here, actually.)
She's clearly got an eye for photos and what plays well on social media. It takes more than a pretty face to find the success she has.
You can read her blog, which supplements the pics, right here.
In fact, she keeps her face out of frame for many of the pics.
That’s not an accident. She explains on her blog that she’d like to one day return to work as a pilot, so she walks a fine line between anonymity and Internet stardom, which sounds like a really tricky act to pull off!
