Maybe to get the interview, but after that the playing field is even; there are different ways to network and HP is only one of them. Unfortunately I know two people who recently interviewed with the HP ticket and didn't get hired? Good luck to all!Stupid joke about going to Higher Power Aviation to get your type rating. Some say it enhances your chances with SWA.
Not the case!Lol, no degree, no type for me = no chance.
CONGRATS AGAIN ON THE RECENT CALL!Interviewed 2006, typed and no degree, got the letter.
Interviewed 2008, typed, Check Airmen, degree, got the call.
That's good news! I'm an examiner at a training center, and instructor. Now, if I could only get some REAL recency of experience!I know for a fact a recent DB selectee did NOT have a 4 year degree. It is NOT a show stopper. Nice to have, but not required.
I agree with NTSing that having LCA or sim/training experience seems to carry more weight.
Good luck everyone.
