    Honolulu HCF/Hawaii FAA

    YMMV but when I lived in Hawaii and visited HCF the HR guy and all the ATC folks told me they like to hire locally. This is of course the same for other facilities but as Hawaii is known to be more tight-knit it might give you an advantage.

    Referral List is up...

    No doubt I got a couple of networking opportunities which are great, but I'm about 3 panels in and past the phase of trying to get in the next one. I got a few years left and decided to get my bachelor's with the GI bill so everything is gravy. If I get picked up the next one it would be awesome...

    Referral List is up...

    I dunno whether to check this thread religiously or forget I ever applied for ATC until I get the job..... The vacancy announcements are screwy and hopefully it figures itself out soon. I need a jerb!

    Still in "application received" for CTI bid

    Lol it sure beats saying "HEY YOU TOOK MY SPOT WTF" Ya I'm a GRCC grad. Haven't taken an aviation class in so long I'm forgetting everything I learned. I heard ZSE put in a bunch of new people so I dunno how my chances are but here's to hoping I'm in.

    Still in "application received" for CTI bid

    Awesome. That's my #1 pick at this moment seeing as I already live in Auburn.

    Still in "application received" for CTI bid

    Ah crap I missed the window of calling them until Christmas is over... I don't have my hopes up but since they picked applicants from spring 2012, does the application from that time reflect whether or not I was selected? I remember calling ACD because I wanted to find out whether or not they...

    Still in "application received" for CTI bid

    I've been out of the loop for a couple of months, and last I heard the CTI application was cancelled (the one ending in September, FAA-AMH-13-CTI-2705). My application still reads it's been received and no referral list has been created. Did they just not bother to update saying the position is...

    What states did you choose for FAA ATC?

    I wrote in the comments section that I was willing to go to any facility in the US. Might as well make my intentions clear.

    Any CTI's age out?

    You could specify your situation in the comments box. Put that you are aging out or something like that.

    Is 27 too old to start ATC training?

    You could transfer as much credits as you can into the CTI program. Lots of folks in my class did that and they were very close to aging out. If you'll get the job or not is another issue but you can get your CTI quickly if you work at it.

    What states did you choose for FAA ATC?

    Re: State Selection WA and NY. 3rd panel. I think it might be time to take WA out of my list as lots of people wanna go there (new hires and transfers).

    Anyone in the same boat as me?

    I did get a contact for a person that hires RPO's for facilities I could call when I get back to my state. I had a friend that did an internship at ZSE and got in, should I look into that as well? Also I'm going to try getting in touch with the district managers. Worst case scenario I don't get...

    Anyone in the same boat as me?

    Yeah I'm working on my degree so I have an option of being a pilot for the AF if this thing doesn't work out. I was a bit concerned when I hit 3 panels because that's the most I've seen people post they got picked up at. I also do have the option of going active duty ATC and then getting out to...

    Anyone in the same boat as me?

    I did put a high facility state (CA) to see if I can get in, but it seems everyone is doing that with CA and TX. So far we have someone that went through 5 panels, has anyone waited longer than that? I was going to try CA or TX and also a small state people wouldn't pick.

    Anyone in the same boat as me?

    I'm 26 (about to be 27 in a few months) and decided to stay in school to get my bachelor's. It just sucks I can't start making future plans because I'm still stuck in limbo. How do you get an interview with a panel representative? I never met anyone that can directly influence the hiring process.
