I would also like to point out that you need to google and dig and find the hiring criteria because there are things in there that people don’t “teach” you when applying. A couple examples: when asked what your “highest qualification” is, LC garners more points as opposed to tower sup even though in the military the sup position is what’s highly coveted. The military’s definition of sup is 180 from the FAA. LC might get you 1.0 points whereas TS might get you 0.8 when being judged against your peers. Next example, and one I had to learn the hard way and one I think is arbitrary, there is a scale to airfield difficulty. I’d have to find the memo again but it’s something like 1.0 for intersecting runways, 0.8 for parallels, 0.6 for single runway, 0.4 for heliport. The reason I say this is arbitrary is because (having worked at 3/4 types of those,) a facility working the same amount of traffic on a single runway might be more difficult than a facility matching traffic count but on parallels. Also worth noting is that there isn’t an option for a facility that has BOTH parallels AND intersecting runways. Kind of a knock on those who have worked in that environment but I digress. At the end of the day, you’ll be offered a list to rank 1-X and then the powers that be will simply throw a dart at the wall to determine the next handful of years of your life, BUT... knowing how to best position yourself might be the difference between being ranked best qualified and more qualified or whatever the technical term is because you are measured (as far as making your list goes) against your peers (a collection of everyone who has been selected, ranked on experience based off number of facilities x qualifications within said facility x facility complexity). This is all pointless information as you’ve already applied but someone might see this one day before applying, therefore I’m putting it out into the universe.
