Since you answered the previous question, you may be the one person willing to give me some insight into to the DOD. Please help me find the way in to a DOD ATC job. What is the best way to approach the whole situation? I have applied several times and frankly I am at a loss. I have tons of experience, excellent references and a willingness to work hard. But so far, no luck in even getting in the door. I am prior military but do not have a disability and I am now 48. Any suggestions?
