Came across this, maybe it will be of use to someone. You can also see the job posting on the general mills website. It's for a Citation X, I think.

Thanks for the info. Good to see a flight department hiring.
Most of those type jobs are filled then posted as an human resources eoe function. If not, there's only about 200,000 resumes to review.
Yeah, frustrating trying to get into these kinds of places. You HAVE to know somebody... and know them well!
Funny thing is a buddy of mine is an account manager and says that GM just let go of a bunch of them, including him.
That's pretty restrictive medical requirements: "Glasses wearers need not apply". (• First Class medical certificate with no restrictions.)
