Good morning all! I'm new here and apologize if I missed information somewhere else. I'm overseas and want to come home. I was wondering if anyone from Colgan 2000-07 timeline might be at UPS. Looking for help on my app. Any info is appreciated!

You would do much better going to a job fair than trying to get a reference from someone who vaguely remembers you from the past. It is quite possible to get hired with no internal references(or external as they do not take these) with the current hiring team. And traveling all the way from a foreign country to see them at the job fair goes a long way. This isn't secondhand information i'm giving you, it was exactly my situation so please take this advice if you really want the job, do whatever it takes to get to the next job fair. Even if it means buying round trip tickets for 2000USD.

Thank you Sir! I went to Vegas in April and have done the Hogan. It just seems I'm stalled and info I saw that an internal rec really helps. Safe trips!

I can think of two off the top of my head. One was IAH based and I don't remember where the other was based.

Where were you based?

If you passed the hogan and haven't heard from anyone and its been more than two weeks I would contact whomever sent you the link. That doesn't seem normal.

Any sponsors? If so ask them to check up on you with the HR.
