I have very recently completed the recruitment process. I feel there is a need for me to share tips and mistakes I made in the process so you guys don’t make the same ones. I tried to make this short so you guys will actually read it.
This is the main part where I went wrong with my process. I would be asking my recruiter if he received my message four hours after I sent it. The results of that happening many times delayed my process by more than a month. Refer to this: Recruiters Have Lives
First Impressions are everything
Recruiters are volunteers. making a good impression right off the start will deepen your relationship with them. If there is something you need help with, the recruiter will more willingly explain the material to you if you made a good impression.
Don't take the written without looking at the tutorials
This was also a big mistake for me. I thought that just because I knew what sequencing was, I could easily pass. After two fails, I decided to read the tutorials, and I got all but two questions right.
Make a tracking thread
Just because you can control at LAX on training server does no mean that you are ready for IFATC. Make a tracking thread where people will give you feedback on your performance. Here is a tutorial about how to make one: How To Make ATC Tracking Threads. [Vocab Now Added!]
Thank you guys for reading, and I hope to be controlling you guys in the near future.
