Comments

  1. You’re asking for three “tricks” that the applicants know of to help research and book award travel: hmmm….that is a very effective and free way of advancing your business tremendously by getting all that useful information, without giving back anything in return to all of us who get rejected.

    Shameless!

    • I’m sorry you think that. The purpose of that question is to ensure the candidate can bring something to the table, and to evaluate whether they’re actually an expert. I’d like to think I know pretty much everything out there regarding Aeroplan, and am certainly not asking this to fish for information. It seems like a more valuable assessment mechanism than asking someone to do a mock request, which the “answer” can change from the time of submission to the time of evaluation.

  2. Happy to know your business is growing and the offer definitely seems tempting. I wish I could commit to be available on call for up to 15 hr/week considering a 45-50 hr work week.
    Good luck for finding the right person!
