Is it wrong for someone who is not a minority to join OBAP and put it on a resume in hopes of scoring an interview? Has anyone tried this before?
 
Now this is an original idea!

I suppose that joining the OWRAP (Organization of White Redneck Airline Pilots) would be just as career enhancing?
 
Go minority...Try Norwegian American....0,00421%

Hey, why not...?


A good friend of mine changed his name from a good old "white" US male name to a hispanic name, then applied to Northwest, and got hired...When they asked him about the name-change he explained that his parents were missionaries in Panama and since he grew up there, he felt closer to the latin culture and changed his first and last name....

The system is in place, use the system.

It sure worked for him
Whatever it takes, lie, cheat and steal, everybody else does, just get on that seniority list..Even after the 9/11 and the pay-cuts he is still getting $101.00 per hour for sitting in the right seat of a DC-9 a few days a month.
 
the short answer is no its not wrong. We have members that are not black, and they are all welcome and treated like any other member. But if you are joining only to show up at convention time and drop off some resume's and not participate and support in any of the other volounteer events like ACE camps or Pilots in schools, that is certianly frowned upon by all members. Hope to see you at the convention in Phoenix next year.

He ACTUALLY changed his name? Or just on the resume?

He actually did change the name..First and last...

Yup, it worked....I would probably do the same if I could cook up a similar good explanation.

To pass all them interviews and exams and all that, ya have to be a good actor.
Don't tell 'em what ya think, tell 'em what they would like to hear.
That is why ya got all the prep-classes and books and briefings out there.
Say it loud and clear so it will ring the corporate bell...

Nevertheless, they can tell if ya B/S 100%, try to be honest most of the time, but a name-change to Hispanic and some crying story probably won't hurt...
