Why don't they simplify the process by saying you need 3 internal recommendations to apply. It would save a lot of false hopes.

(yeah, just looked at my HR record, my official title is still a PIC supposed to be dual qualified and current in a King Air and Bell Jetranger)

This will be an issue for you at almost every airline you apply at. Most have a requirement for X number of hours in the past X number of months.

Would a rec from another Alaska employee (IT manager) help? I have externals, but don't know any pilots from Alaska.

Yeah. I know. I've been trying to get a flying reserve job for a while now. Not having a a flying reserve gig wasn't a big deal when I got out, as I was supposed to fly 2-300 hours a year here. I've flown enough to be "legal" on my own dime, as far as not dropping instrument currency, but getting any sort of 100 hours + in a year is beyond my budget if I'm paying the bill 100%, especially if it's going to be in anything bigger than a 172.

I keep getting the "Graduate indicator should be set to 'ON'" prompt while updating the education section. I do not, however, see a "Graduate" container anywhere in the application. Any idea?

I am using Windows 8.

Their web application leaves a little to be desired. Their HR department is awesome. [email protected]. They will get you fixed up.

I had the same problem. This is answered somewhere earlier in the thread. Delete your old/current education and reenter it. You won't have the glitch.
