As the holiday season rolls around, many of us find ourselves spending time with our friends and family in anticipation of various celebrations over the next few weeks. This is an opportunity to take a breather and reflect on what has happened over the course of this year.
Starting on Monday, December 23rd, IFATC applications will be put on pause in order to allow the recruiters some much needed time off. Additionally, testing will be non-existent for the duration of the break save for several exemptions if needed. A few operations that can continue, however, include…
- Stat checks if requested.
- Shadow sessions w/ trainers in absence of the schedule (limited to availability).
The recruiters will resume their usual pace after the New Year on January 2nd. There may be some intermittent replies and responses in the meantime, but try not to expect consistent engagement until then. That being said, it is our goal to get everyone taken care of before dead week begins next Monday.
For any of you who have not received a reply about testing by Friday, feel free to send a quick ping to get situated by Sunday, December 22nd. We’ll try to get to as many people accommodated by that date. If not, then enjoy your holiday as much as you can until our return.
- Sunday, December 22nd - last day of testing.
- Monday, December 23rd - beginning of holiday.
- Tuesday, January 2nd - testing/applications resume.
To follow up from the recap, there is also an additional purpose for this break, which is to allow myself and the other recruiters some breathing space to prepare for the 2020 season. The testing/training schedule will be tallied and stats crunched for this year, the results of which will be viewable to you all at a later date. We’re on track for an even bigger and better year ahead!
