Can pilot school graduates qualify for pilot jobs right away?

Flight Instructor

I found a deal for domestic pilot school students on this page where they say they give pilot jobs right away http://www.epicflightacademy.com/graduate-zero-hero-course-pilot-jobs/ so I ask, is that possible? Can the pilot course described there really take me from no flying experience to being a flight instructor that fast?

    Maybe this is already clear to you, but according to the web page you referenced, they are only promising you a job as a flight instructor at their flight school. You would not be particularly qualified to go after a job flying commercially immediately after finishing the course.

    They’re estimating eight months, which if you are working at it full time seems aggressive, but possible to me. You probably wouldn’t be able to keep a job with that level of commitment to flight training, so you would need to have saved up or gotten a loan for the flight school costs and living expenses beforehand.
