Post 2013 deadline

Now this is a new record for patience, not even a smoke signal from KQ. Today i was forced to visit the recruitment portal just to confirm that my application was still active.

Anyway, if anyone gets any communication from them....dont forget to post it here

KQ is firmly back into profit making business. Atleast for the next 3 years [before 2017 elections]. Its shares are trading at Ksh 12.95-13.10. An all time high price range for the half decade.

KQ is performing satisfactorily well with regard to project mawingu. Right now, KQ has 45 aeroplanes [according to job description on careers website]. With the 787 this March/May, that will tick the counter upwards. According to project mawingu, KQ should be having 50 planes by now.

Their is a light at the tunnel's end.

Thumbs down

The signal has been censored by PPRuNe. My messages take long to be displayed. So, I'm out of this thing.
Adieu!

@marwon

That sounds like the direct entry and not the ab-initio group being called for the interviews.

Hi Aviators,

To those who've received emails: is it Direct Entry guys? or Ab-Initio guys? or both?

Any Ab-initio guys who have (NOT) received?

Enjoy your day!
