Unless you're a Delta crew landing on the parallel taxiway with all those pretty blue lights........

Thanks for the clarification...

anyone ever get the info on how much weight is giving to showing up at the job fair? I'd like to go but will be on hot standby at home expecting a baby.

Job fairs are not part of the Atlas screening program...but some face time with HR folks could be a good thing.

I'm sure there's a reason they accept resumes as well as ask many questions similar to what's asked in the HR portion of the interview.

I'm not sure one would go so far as to say its NOT a part of the screening process.

Besides, WIA is a job fair of sorts, and more than one male has gotten a call from attending.

Otherwise DB, or any of the other nice HR folks wouldn't waste their time showing up. Not like they need to advertise.

Calls going out for Sept. 11, 12, 13 interviews.

The guy I know had completed phone interview/tech eval in December.

Gvinflight, you've got to be the most energetic pilot in the hiring market.

I guess I needed to be clearer...job fairs are not part of the "official" screening of pilot candidates, meaning that no points are likely awarded toward the final tally.

But no doubt DB and her crew remember those that attend and may place them in a special pile for consideration...

Above is pure speculation on my part...I have no inside info to support that.

Good luck.
