And on and on. So your right I have a written record of being one thing... Right on the money. In 2 years you will look back and say he was right. Then you will probably make something else up about me.. Like Mea is fat, management puke, ugly, not a pilot, RETARDED. Say what you want soon you will realize I am one thing, that is never wrong!
If you want us to take you seriously and believe that you work within Alaska Air Group, for Alaska Airlines, perhaps stop calling the company you supposedly work for "Alaskan Airways". That airline does not exist, nor has it ever. Just my two cents...

Any word on Osh Kosh? Where to find them, what to wear, what to bring? I know of other guys who seem to get this information e-mailed to them by recruiters, how do you get on such list? I filled out an app within the last window.

Thanks,

Well, when I ran into them there, they were in medium sized semi-permanent tent building up near where the fly market used to be. (Sorta across from the forums area.) They're in there with everyone else, regionals, -135 freight outfits, etc. Last year a lot of Horizon people were there too.

It's first-come, first-serve, so if it's busy, take a walk, go look at some airplanes, and come back later. It's very informal, someone will glance at your resume, (just to screen out the dreamers), and then suggest who you should wait for. (Probably the shortest line.) If you like, you can try to talk to all of them. (A couple of base chief pilots and an HR person or two, if I remember correctly.)

What to bring? Not much, all they wanted last time was a resume, not even a cover letter. They'll make annotations on it as they chat with you, and when they're finished, put it in their pile. So I'd bring few of those and maybe a couple of cover letters just in case. (And as spares for that massive coffee spill).

Whatever you do, do not wear a suit, you'll look like a fool. Remember, it's an airshow, we're all there to have fun. (And it gets pretty hot & muggy some years.) Think office casual: dockers and a nice button-down shirt are just fine.
Just be relaxed, they just want to get a feel for you. HR will do the scrutinizing back in Seattle.

There is air service into Appleton, Milwaukee and (duh), Chicago.
Good luck, and have a fun time. It's a great atmosphere to meet them in.

N19906 covered it, I'd just say try to avoid t-shirts, tennis shoes and cargo shorts and you'll be fine. Anything that leaves you looking overdressed for an airshow (blazer, tie, nice wool pants) will leave you, well, looking overdressed for an airshow.

There is a map when you buy your admission that will show you where all the vendors are.

All great info. Besides, if you dress up you'll be very sweaty by the time you reach their tent!

I don't see them listed on the EAA website as a Career Fair attendee. I went last year, am I missing something?

***I called and was told Alaska Airlines WILL be in attendance but they may have chosed not to purchase a page, whatever that mean*******
