Delta Air Lines is set to hire more than 1,000 flight attendants next year.

The job pays about $25,000, according to the company’s website.

Fewer 1 percent of last year’s 150,000 applicants were hired, making it “easier to get into an Ivy League school than to become a Delta flight attendant,” according to the company’s website.

Applicants should be “dedicated, service-oriented professionals who love to be on-the-go, help others and enjoy variety in their work,” according to the job posting.

New hires are required to attend an eight-week training program at Delta’s headquarters in Atlanta in order to earn their wings.

Applicants must be at least 21 years old by Jan. 1, and have earned a high school diploma or GED certificate. Applicants also must be able to work in the United States and speak fluent English.
