Hired at SkyWest Airlines

Hi Louis, Here's a quick note to say that my nephew's experience with the premium member FAPA interview preparations was excellent. He interviewed with SkyWest yesterday and was offered a job 45 minutes later. His CRJ class begins this month. He said that his mock interview and the suggestions he received from FAPA were quite valuable and that he was told that he "hit it out of the ballpark" on the HR portion of the interview. His father and I are so pleased that his aviation career is progressing so well.
