    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at AirTran Holdings (Atlanta, GA) in March 2009.

    Interview

    sat for my first internship interview last year, two bored airline junior executives asked me the standard battery of personality questions, to which I gave well-prepared answers. They asked me to estimate how many ping-pong balls I could fit in a 737, seeking insight into my problem-solving skills. They asked what kind of car their airline would be, if it were a car. A vision of life as a mid-level airline executive flashed before my eyes – an episode of The Office with frequent flier discounts.

    After the interview, the recruiters told the career services folks that I was the most interesting candidate they had met. The career counselor couldn’t be sure if ‘interesting’ was a good thing or bad. Heaven help me if I ever have to work where I have to wonder if interesting is good.
