Client Testimonials

Anonymous

Hired at United Airlines

Thanks for the great service FAPA provided me. Sitting down with Claudette a few days before the interview is definitely what helped me get the job offer. I will recommend the premium service to anyone that's interested for sure. Thanks again. Thank you (and Judy) so very much for your help, encouragement, and kind words along the way. Your tips and hints helped more than I realized, and will also do me well in future similar pursuits. Received a phone call today from United and I will start class… (in July) on the 737. Thanks again for all of your help! Couldn't have done it without you!
