Hello, I am Nick Bridges and I am currently employed for JetBlue for Ground Operations. I started working here about 6 months ago but have been in the industry for about 2 years by now. I started working at Logan to pay my way through business school but quickly realized that was not the path I wanted to go down. So after my employment began at JetBlue I dropped out of college and started to focus on my flight aspirations. I am 20 years old now and about halfway through my PPL. After a year of employment here, I have the opportunity to join a mentorship program that offers guidance and a guaranteed interview once all prerequisites are met. Though this is an awesome opportunity, I am a bit skeptical of the interview aspect. Ideally, I’d like to start at ATP as soon as I can but would waive my eligibility for the mentorship program. I am curious, though I’d have a guarantee at an interview, will I actually be hired? Or am I better off working my way through ATP and regional airlines, then applying for other major airlines once I have sufficient experience?
Thank you for your help!
