It's been a while since I posted anything, but I read these forums every day. I earned my ADX license a little over two years ago, and due to family situations, had to accept a 135 flight following gig near home for a seasonal position that could have turned into full time, but didn't. The time I spent there was probably the most professional satisfaction I've ever had in my life. But due to said family obligations, when the seasonal gig ended, I had to get a job - anywhere. So I accepted a position in a "career" I cringe at, but, since it pays upwards of six figures, it enabled me to relocate, support my obligations to my broken family, and start over. Now almost two years later, I'm ready to go for it. It will likely mean moving from my new home, and will definitely mean a 60+% cut in pay. But I need to feel useful, satisfied, and yes, maybe even happy. At my age, I'm running out of time to make a new career work (I'm 53). I've dedicated myself to studying everything I've forgotten over the past two years, and have started applying to my top 10 list of potential employers. Just like walking in to ADX class the first day, realizing everything I need to sharpen up on, it's overwhelming. So, my question for all you experienced, or recent hires is, what should I focus my energies on mastering first, and what else should I prepare for for a potential interview? My gut tells me some of the basics like the 1-2-3 rule, when you need an alternate, etc, regulations (which Parts are most important to master?) and finally, master AD's, IAP, STARs, and high and low enroute charts. Am I on the right track in your opinion, or am I missing something? Advice, suggestions, and if you believe, a prayer or two would be appreciated. Thank you, y'all are wonderful.
