My Home Base – Alison McDonald, Jet Linx Aviation
In each edition of My Home Base, we feature a member of the Jet Linx team from across the country and showcase what they feel makes their Jet Linx location and their city special. In this edition, meet Alison McDonald, Jet Linx Aviation Talent Specialist.
Favorite part of your job: I love being the candidate’s guide through the hiring process and extending them the opportunity to join the team. It’s always a great feeling to know you’ve been able to impact someone in a positive way!
Describe the Jet Linx team in one word: Passionate
Favorite Jet Linx memory or experience: I had the opportunity to travel to Nashville to attend a job fair at Middle Tennessee State University when I joined the Talent Team. It was a great opportunity to speak with aviation students and get more involved in the aviation community.
Favorite thing in Omaha: I love that Omaha hosts events like the College World Series and the Olympic Swim Trials. I was able to attend both this year and had a great time.
Little known fact about yourself: I am a huge baseball fan. I made it to 4 of the postseason games for the Kansas City Royals in 2014 and was able to see all the games they clinched the win of the series. A year later, I was fortunate to attend the World Series Champs parade Kansas City hosted!
What might someone find surprising about your job: I always find a written thank you card to be a pleasant surprise. With email being such an easy means of follow up, the written note has almost disappeared.
