Job Fair Attendee

Hello.... By the way, the job fair was very well-executed today. Nice job. I bet your premier memberships go way up after this. I didn’t wait in line AT ALL. I was #273 Premier. Went in when the board said 250 American, 300 All others. The woman from American approached me and asked if wanted to speak to an American representative. When I said yes, she brought me to the table where they took my resume for a minute, handed it back and brought me to the waiting Captain. It couldn’t have gone smoother. I’m a new fan of the premier-exclusive line now.
