Client Testimonials


Hired at Mesa Airlines

Hi Mr. Washka, Thanks for the information, but... I just got off the phone with Mesa Airlines and I was just offered the FO position! Without FAPA's job fair, it wouldn't have happened this easily. The face to face time really got the ball rolling. Thanks for all you do for us!
