Anyone here apply to the 167th AS Hiring Board(Martinsburg WV ANG C-17 unit)? If you did apply did they send you a confirmation email that they received your application? Also I don’t know much about that squadron just went ahead and applied have any of you ever rushed that unit?

This might be a goofy question but hopefully I can get it answered here to avoid bothering the POC with it. For Fresno's app it says the package must be consolidated into a 'PDF file less than 5mb in size'. Anyone know if this is megabytes (MB) or megabits (Mb)? Not trying to have my app not make it through by missing a small detail like that.

I’m pretty sure it’s megabytes.

That's what I figured, Portland actually had Mb listed though so I always watch for that. I guess a better question is has anyone submitted an app over 5Mb and gotten a 'received' notification?

I actually didn't notice that the 142nd Wing page said "Mb" instead of "MB". From their listing:

Send electronic packages in a PDF format not to exceed 8Mb.

My .pdf application came out to be 6.28 MB and I got an email saying they received it. I guess I'll let you know if they reject me for the file size!

I received a confirmation email. With COVID I never had the chance to visit them.

megabits are rarely used to indicate storage size, and that would also be a tiny PDF file if it was only 8 megabits. I know it's important to look out for this stuff and be professional, but come on guys...

Hiring pipeline making me crazy lol cheers

Just got a TBNT email from the 187th Airlift Squadron in Cheyenne. Good luck to those moving forward and to those like me who weren’t as fortunate with your next opportunity.

Whats the appeal of Cheyenne? It seems like such a highly competitive unit for a location that isn't in a major metropolitan area. I'm guessing proximity to Denver? I froze my cajones off when I went up there.

I’m guessing it’s more driven by the dire nature of aviation hiring market rather than the appeal of the unit itself.

Double check your info. I've had a recruiter tell me something cant be submitted without an approved FC1 and they were wrong, and it cost me a lot of time. 

Not sure if NGB and the reserve board works the same. But once my package gets approved by NGB is that when they issue OTS dates? If that is the case then my recruiter is sending my package to NGB now and that is prior to me getting my FC1 so it is definitely possible. However, I can see it being the other way around as well with them not wanting to issue OTS/UPT dates to someone who may not even be eligible considering their FC1 has not been done/stamped approved yet.

It would make sense for your FC1 to have to be completed in order to submit for the NGB/ Reserve Board, because what if you DQ for something during your FC1?

Yeah that's exactly along the lines of what I was thinking. @ryleypavDo you have confirmed OTS/UPT dates now prior to your FC1?
