Any suggestions on a prep course for a interview with JB. Seems that the only way to get hired.

Itís not the only way to get hired here. Many have been successful without doing interview prep.

For me - having been without formal interview prep in my career it helped....somewhat.

I did Emerald Coast. I did a couple webinars as well as went thru the course material. It is very much geared towards the military crowd, but a good deal of useful information.

If you chose not to do the prep then just go thru the gouge and be professional and personable. Show that you care about customers and co workers. Know the values and have a smile on your face. Want to work at JB.

Half of the battle is getting the interview. I spent 6 years applying and finally got on here in the summer (even then only with a BlueDart). They want people who want to be here and will likely see thru those that are looking for a stepping stone.

Good luck!

I did no interview prep for JB and got hired on the first interview. I later did emerald coast when I was trying to go to a different airline and feel like the $400 I spent was wasted. Some guys swear by it. Ymmv. But JetBlue doesnít expect you to do interview prep. They want to get to know you and make sure you did homework on the company and at least prepped yourself, though. Plenty of free gouge out there on the internet.

To each his own... I also used Emerald Coast and was glad I did. Was worth the $ just just to be more prepared and relaxed. You can do prep and not be a robot so they still get to know your personality. I recommend guys pay for the knowledge and experience. Itís so hard to get an interview at a decent airline, why risk it over $400 or whatever it is now...
