Yes, without a doubt. Only after having jet time on my CV did I start receiving responses to job applications back in Australia.

Nah, it's just that there are now lots of 'new Australians' around these days that may not have heard of these slangs. Nothing wrong with that and good luck to them. I did the E3 thing in the USA...

Don't worry about the interview at Mesa. Everyone passes. It's just a formality. Mesa is where people go when they wash out from the other regionals. They'll take anyone with a heart beat.

There's a reason why Mesa has had to offer those benefits to attract new hires. When you have Mesa pilots coming across to other regionals, that's saying something. It's not all about the money ;-)
