Phase 2 Update

Z, you’ve not updated us on your journey to enter the Air Force! What’s up, man?!

I’m nearing the end of “Phase 2″ of my recruitment.

All of my paperwork is in for this phase.  All of my recommendations are in.

Now, I’m waiting on a “Major Command Interview” to be scheduled.  This will be an interview with a Colonel (06) or above, and may happen sometime in mid-December.  If not, then I’m probably looking at it happening in January.

After the MajCom Interview, the recruiting office will decide if my application gets to go before a Review Board.  Successfully making it through the Review Board puts me at the end of Phase 2, and the beginning of Phase 3.

What does “Phase 3″ look like?

I have no idea what happens in Phase 3.  I’ve asked the recruiter, and his reply has been: “Well cover it when we get there.”

It’s in the bag, yes?

This is my Worried Face.

No, not really.  I’m a little nervous about it all.  You see, the position(s) I’m trying for are some what competitive. While I don’t know exactly how many people are making applications to the USAF in this area; I do know this:

  • They are losing 53 folks from this spot due to attrition/retirement/etc.
  • They are only hiring around 23-25 to fill those open slots.

Sounds like they are trying to do more with less.

Yes, they are doing more with less.

So, Z. Why are you trying to be a part of this? You think you’re special!?

Yes, I believe I’m one of those qualified and gifted to excel at this position.  Perhaps I’ll tell you why I believe this someday.

;)
