Imagine if the FAA did a % to retirement if someone was to CPC from a referral. CHP does it. Good job. Try not to tell the world we only work half our shifts, when some are working 6 hours of it lol
Imagine telling a civilian that you ONLY get 2 hours of break a day.

Man I know. I try to make sure to get across that it varies by facility, but I’m sure that gets overlooked.

Lol yeah man I don’t mind it at all. I’ve had over a hundred people at this point keep in touch with me over the years and tell me they graduated the academy, CPC’d etc, and they all had several people in their classes from Reddit… It’s enough to keep me motivated to keep doing these things.
Another one here. You do a fantastic job with those AMAs, keep it up.

Don’t know how the FAA expects to reach anyone outside of aviation with an AMA on r/ATC, but what do I know!

They SHOULD crosspost it to r/IAMA and promote it to the front page... but, ya know, FAA gonna FAA

I'll add on and say your post back in 2019 got me to apply. When I got to my center seemed to be the case for about 1/3 of the other new devs as well

Sierra Bravo here. Yeah man I’ve been doing that AMA every year since the 2018 one blew up. The one I just did got over 5 million views.

Sierra Bravo here, that’s awesome, man! You made it, I assume?
I actually am here because of your most recent AMA thread and I am definitely gonna toss my name in the hat on the 24th! Fingers crossed 🤞🏼

Yes I did, we talked a lot in Reddit DMs. Your threads alone must be the reason for 15% of devs have this job haha.

Im also here from the reddit ama. Got any tips on what to put on the resume? I did use the resume builder on usajobs. I just find it hard to think of traits to put down. Either way I do have a Bachelors In Accounting so I think that qualifies me.
