I’m still annoyed, but the offer from a prospective employer was sustained, not retracted — they’re still quite happy to have me and, frankly, I’m quite happy to contribute.
In fact, they’ll be happy to have me and a few classmates from the SCC AMT program even without our full certifications* yet.
As my own story continues to unfold into the next chapter in life, here’s how it goes so far:
I met briefly with a recruiter (for about 15 minutes, TBH) for Boeing Aircraft who extended an offer on the spot to for an aircraft maintenance role.
Of course, Boeing management countered with a number of contingencies. Work history, criminal background, credit, education, drug screen, etc.
Contingencies were all met.
And, as of this morning, I can officially tell the world that I’ll be assuming a maintenance and inspection role in Moses Lake after a month of Boeing process training in Seattle.
Oh! I have so many things to get sorted in the next four weeks.
*The role with Boeing Aircraft doesn’t require an A&P certification, but none of us is prepared to forego our certifications. The whole point of putting in the time was to gain our certs.
