AirTran - Professional Employment
Recently I finished my MBA and am interested in getting started with AirTran at their headquarters here in Orlando, FL. Over a decent period of time I've applied for positions online, dropped off cover letters & resume's at the office, snail mailed them to people in HR, left voicemails, sent faxes and have also been in semi-contact with one current but very busy employee. However, no matter what I do, I can't seem to get my foot in the door or get an acceptable response (be it positive or negative) from someone. In addition to having graduate and undergraduate degrees in business (with strong GPA's), work experience (non-airline) and a life-long interest in the industry, I just can't seem to get anywhere with AirTran.
Any ideas of what might be going on? Do they just not have ANY professional openings? Do they not like MBA's? Are they just so low-cost that they'd rather not pay somebody like me? Are they thinking that I'm going to want more than what they'd be willing to offer? Are they getting a zillion applications from people throughout the industry who are more qualified? Other airlines like Northwest, American, America West, Delta, etc all recruit MBA's and list that the degree is preferred for a lot of different positions. Realistically, I could do anything related to the functional areas of business (finance, economics, information systems, general management, marketing, etc) as well as positions in revenue management, pricing/yield/route analysis, flight ops support and on and on and on.
What's the deal here? Any insight or recommendations?

I think you hit the nail on the head with this statement.
