Checked and Set is a household name in our Squadron and a must prior to publishing your applications. Charlie Venema was my reviewer and undoubtedly proved his service’s value. Despite feeling confident that my apps were nearly ready prior to his review, he found several areas to improve that could’ve risked potential offers. That alone is worth the expense, but it was his courtesy and professionalism that underlined the reason his company gets so many recommendations. A resounding thank you to Charlie and his team for helping so many of us prep for success!

A couple months ago I emailed Charlie at Checked and Set asking if he felt it was worth it for me to do an application review with only an associates degree and a history of poor grades. I felt like I could never be hired but I used their app review service and had a great experience.

Yesterday morning, I received a job offer from United Airlines after interviewing last week. I just wanted to say thank you to Charlie and the Checked and Set team for helping me to achieve a dream I never felt was possible for me. I would recommend their services to anyone and I truly couldn’t have done it without them.

Charlie and all the great folks at Checkedandset provide absolutely top shelf support with airline app prep. Charlie was thorough and really went the extra mile to draw the best out of what my app had to say about me. I highly recommend them!

Totally worth it. I spent three months on my app felt like, somehow, Charlie knew it better than I did. He provided pivotal insight and explained several things I thought I knew but decidedly did not. Highly recommend the service. The standard is high when most applicants are paying for a review. Your app is sure to stick out (in a bad way) if you’re the one who didn’t do it.

Had attempted to do Airline Apps on my own but wasn't sure how to answer some of the questions. Signed up for Checked.& Set. Found their service was outstanding & well worth the cost! Charlie went above and beyond the call to assist me. His insights into Airline Apps were invaluable! I'd highly reccomend their services.
