Is there a point to the early connections program?

Post by FishermanIvan » Thu Sep 20, 2018 3:17 pm

Should I apply at my current hours, or just wait until I have 1000 and apply directly as an FO? Is there an advantage to applying via the early connections program?

The early connection program, destination:Porter, is advantageous on a number of fronts. If accepted into the program, you are paired with a pilot at Porter who is there to act as a mentor to you as you navigate the early stages of your career. Additionally, once accepted in the program, you will get an interview at 1000 hours, while there is no guarantee of that if you are not in the program.

If you feel that you may benefit from having someone providing feedback on decisions and offering guidance, and you have a strong desire to work at Porter, the connection program may be for you!

Perfect Julie, thanks! That’s exactly the information I was looking for.

If we don't hear back after the interview is that a good thing or not?

Except the early connections program, and destination porter are two separate things. Destination porter is the mentorship program. So far all I can tell with early connections is that it just puts a file in the system for you for when you do reach 1000. That or something went horribly wrong with my application lol

How long does it generally take to find out whether you are accepted in the program after you submit your video? Also when can you make updates on the application?
