I've been in ATC application purgatory since August '08, and I've gotten use to the run around (I do understand I'm not the only one). I was given a class date at the beginning of FY 11, but my cleareances expired and had to be passed over. After that I was told I was #7 in-line for a class date for ZAU, which is fine with me, but today I got and interesting email from the Midwest En-Route HR rep. It wasn't the so much the email that was interesting, but 1 line stood out in it, "If asking for a redirect, please be specific". Although ZAU was my geo pref, Im willing to jump ship if necessary. I would love some opinion on this topic, thanks in advance for time.
