I am looking for some advice. I have been in the Marine Corps for 11 years and am applying for the VSP which will allow me to end my current contract early. In my 11 years I have been deployed and been in the field and worked out of portable towers more than I have out of actual ATC facilities. I would like to continue controlling when/if I get out but dont know the first thing about applying for or really even looking for a job in the civilian sector. Anyone out there who could shed some light on where to look and what my first steps should be would be greatly appreciated. I am open to anything i.e. DOD, contract tower etc. I am specifically looking to stay in the Southern California area and understand that really pigeon holes me. Please! any help and advice would be greatly appreciated!
