If you've come to this year's Conference looking for a job, rest assured you have made the right choice! In fact, so many people came here looking for jobs last year, we put our heads together in the "off season" and came up with a great new way to help WAI members connect with the potential employers on your "must see" list this week.

First, you're going to want to check out The Daily for a schedule of hiring information seminars presented by the different airlines participating. In these 30-minute seminars they'll share basic application procedures for their company, discuss current positions available and the requirements for those jobs, and answer some frequently asked questions.

Because the strategy has worked so well for Disney, we're also instituting a "fast pass" system of our own. To get some face time with these companies, you'll need to check in at the Veracruz South Registration area and get your fast pass. The pass will give you a specific date and time to go to the company's booth in the exhibit hall or other designated room for a face-to-face meeting. But be sure you check in early—there will be a limited number of fast passes available for each company each day.

Hopefully this new system will be better for everyone and give a job seeker a more meaningful experience at the Conference than patiently waiting in line!
