When we think about airline jobs with cool perks like free flights, we typically focus on the jobs of flight attendants and pilots. But one TikTok user has recently changed this common perception by making a video of some lesser-known careers in aviation, which come with the same awesome benefits.
Megan Homme, an employee of United Airlines, recently took to TikTok to share information about all different current openings at the company, many of which are clearly not limited to those on an aircraft. Homme, who works in talent acquisition at the company, stated that every single one of those jobs comes with either free flights or other flight benefits, often similar to those of more prominent roles like pilots or flight attendants.
According to Homme, United Airlines hires UX designers and lawyers in a ton of roles in IT and engineering, audit specialists, interns, consultants, and many more. The company also offers huge numbers of jobs as ramp service employees. Some of these employees even enjoy a sign-on bonus of up to $10,000. Homme also added that there are also provisions for remote jobs, which can be a relief to those who dread commuting to an office regularly. Homme herself is currently working from Palm Springs. She said that the company also hires a lot of analysts and supervisors, and recruits in engineering and talent acquisition. The most interesting fact is that the applicants don’t need any prior airline experience for any of these jobs.
United Airlines’ official website has recently confirmed Homme’s claim by stating that the jobs in their company come with great perks, like discounted airfare to any destination and unlimited standby travel. Additionally, there are other benefits too, like healthcare options, professional development, a 401(k) match, etc. The airline is currently hiring for over 100 vacancies in different positions across the country and abroad.
The culinary landscape of the world is undergoing major changes due to the current global situation. The condition is especially hard for independent diners, street-side groceries, or corner cafes. Here are a few ways you can lend a helping hand to such establishments near you.
Opt for Contactless Restaurant Delivery
Given the current situation, almost all restaurants and eateries are now offering contactless home deliveries. If any restaurants in your area are offering this option, consider opting for it by ordering from an old favorite or someplace new. Unlike big chains, small local restaurants may not have their own websites to provide the service, but you can easily find them on the usual home delivery apps. Try to be more patient than usual, as many restaurants, especially small ones, are new to the system.
Buy Fruits and Veggies Direct or Through a Service
There’s nothing wiser than buying local, especially in the case of veggies, fruits, and groceries. Buying directly helps local farmers too. However, there are other options you can explore. Along with restaurants, many farmers across the nation have already expanded their services to include direct home deliveries. There are also plenty of online retailers offering doorstep deliveries of farm-fresh veggies and fruits, and locally sourced products, in the form of convenient weekly meal kits.
Remember That Spending Is Not the Only Way of Showing Support
Our new reality has changed the financial situation for a large part of the world. So much so that even affluent ones are now extra cautious in flashing their cash. So it’s completely okay if you’re unable to support your local restaurants financially. Instead, opt for other methods like trying to draw attention to their efforts and excellent dishes via social media. From a simple post to a detailed review, anything and everything can be helpful for them during this challenging time.
