Client Testimonials

Mark

Hired at United Airlines

I've had the pleasure of working with Judy Tarver over the past few years and highly recommend her and her team for any airline prep. Judy came to us at Comair during our shut down to provide instruction on resume writing and interview tactics and spent several days speaking to our group in each of our crew bases. Judy has an extensive interviewing background and knows everything there is about resume writing and helped many of us seek new employment at other carriers. I was able to work with Judy during my recent interview with United airlines and her prep was spot on. I had complete confidence on how to answer each question presented and had a great feeling when the interview concluded. I have been recently hired on at United and no doubt Judy played a huge role in this success. I highly recommend her for ANY airline interview you may have coming up. Look no further as Judy is clearly the best.
