Hey TT,

So I've run into a slight snag with Swift Academy. On the Student Closing Form it states that if I have been unemployed for more than 60 days, then I need to provide two notarized letters stating reasons why.

My issue is that I've never been employed before, I've been attending online college full-time, and haven't been able to work. I've been trying to get in contact with my recruiter for the past few days to ask this question, but I haven't been able to reach her. I've even called the recruiting number to speak with someone else regarding this one question, and they said to talk to my recruiter. I then called the Academy, and the guy who answered didn't know anything. What should I do? If I do, in fact, need the letters, who do I obtain them from? Family, friends, etc.?

Pleeeeease Help Me

If you have been in school the entire time, then your transcripts should show that & have you covered. But you can have friends/family members/clergy/etc write letters have them take them to their bank (banks usually notarize things for free if you bank there), get them notarized and that should do the trick for you.

My recruiter told me that was one of the outdated things, that you do not need them anymore. I asked her on 3 different calls with her and every time she said you do not need them anymore. I guess i will find out Monday for sure.

I would recommend calling the Academy, but as I stated in the initial post, the guy who answered the phone was no help. But, I don't see why another recruiter can't answer that simple question. It's the equivalent of getting a second opinion right? But, as the news letter that TT sent out today said, "Recruiters are salesmen".
