    1. get referred. Sounds simple? It's not always. Resumes are scanned for key words. Each branch of service uses different acronyms for the same or similar sh!t. Taylor your resume for each announcement even plagiarize the damned announcement to get through the bean counters and get it to the guy doing the selecting.
    2. Know somebody. - fair or not the hiring is still done by sups and atms. You don't know anybody? See #3.
    3. Get to know somebody. Put a face with your resume. Get in your car or book a flight and schedule a tour. Go see the boss.
    4. The boss wants people who won't bail for the faa. Tell them you want to be there. You grew up near by. You love stankville usa Army town more than anywhere else on earth.

    You could also send videos of yourself sucking a golf ball through a garden hose.
    That's how I got hired... golf ball/hose video.

    Fort Huachuca should be opening up two up/down slots in the next six months or so. There will be a few more to follow that given we are losing at least four people to the FAA. Don't hold me to the timeline but we are way undermanned in the tower so it should be soon.

    Probably never. Unless they have an outrageous number of people jumping ship to the faa.

    FHU is awesome. Its the best kept secret in the dod. I didn't realize you were that smart. Congrats and kudos to you on the education goals.

    Thanks! I'll have to see if i can get over there once i get a major qual. I wasnt smart until i got through ATC school and learned how to study and data dump things that were less important. Anyone can do it, and there really isnt a specified time on long it can take someone to get it.

    Depending on how old you are, you can apply for contracting positions and get the required 52 weeks of atc in the bag before you apply for DoD and the FAA. The DoD age limit is 36. Contractors are always looking for people that have worked atc before and it doesn't have to be recent.

    SSgt Young ain't never lie. Well, he DOES quite frequently but in this case, he's on point: FHU IS one of the best kept secrets in the DoD!!
