FAA Hiring

FAA Hiring Notice

If you have or know kids between the ages of 18-31 with a high school diploma, the Federal Aviation Association is taking applications for air traffic controller school. We all have kids and know kids in the right age group (under 31) and with some effort they could reach a salary of over $100,000 with benefits in about 3 years! . You! need only a high school diploma to apply and credit is given for college on the exam. They need to go to Air Traffic Controller for details and to fill out the application immediately - even if they don't know if! they'd want to attend immediately - it's the federal government and it may take them months to call.

The key is to apply NOW.
There will be a lot of retirements coming up rather quickly and they need! to line up training to accommodate these openings. It's my understanding that the FAA rarely has an open application such as this and that the jobs are coveted. The person who shared this has a 28 year old daughter who is well into 6 figures and has plenty of time for travel/recreation and has started another career on the side. This is a great opportunity and it should be noted that choosing a site like Anchorage or Indianapolis to train is a likely acceptance into the training program - after-which you can transfer anywhere in the country that has a tower. I hope you pass this information o! n to family, friends, etc.

Free MBA from Wake Forest University - URGENT!!

FYI

I wanted to let you know about a great opportunity here at Wake Forest where you can get a FREE education and get PAID while you're doing it. Our Dean of the Schools of Business is the former CEO of PepsiCo and very committed to diversity. He's gone around to his CEO friends, who have agreed to donate a bunch of money to pay tuition and fees, provide a stipend, and a job, to diverse students. The details are below. The problem is, response to the program has been dismal! It's hard for me to believe in the age of Obama, we can't pay black people to go to school? As a faculty member, I would be embarrassed for him to have to tell his CEO friends, "thanks so much for your donation, but unfortunately I have to give it back because we couldn't find any students who wanted it."

So, I need your help. Please contact me if you, or ANYONE you know is interested in the program. I know TO has a long reach, and I want to take advantage of it and help out as many young scholars as I can.

Don't worry about whether or not you (or they) have taken the GMAT, etc. All you need to do at this point is JUST APPLY. In business, you have to act when the opportunity is presented, and that is now.
