Client Testimonials

Hired at United Airlines

Claudette, I wanted to thank you for the interview prep a couple of weeks ago. I'm happy to report I was offered a job with United Airlines. What's incredibly amazing is the first 6 or 7 questions you asked me turned out to be the identical questions I was asked. Thanks again from one happy pilot, Bryan Q.
