Late to the Game – Maximizing Chances
I was hoping to get some feedback on the things around the fringes that I could use to maximize the chances of being competitive to a hiring board. I’m currently 30, turning 31 in November, and due to some immaturity in my 20’s, I still have about a year and half before I graduate college, and the best GPA I could graduate with would be a 3.2.
So, to try to offset the drawbacks of my age and my GPA, besides maximizing my PCSM score, what else can I do? Do things like aerobatic flying carry any weight? Joining the precision flying team? Having volunteer time? Or do only leadership positions carry weight?
Can I rush a unit before I have all of the qualifications in order to build rapport and show progress? Additionally, I see some postings specifically mentioning an age cutoff? Should I send packets to those squadrons if I’m older than the cutoff, or is it considered disrespectful?
Since I have such a small window of time, I just want to be sure that I’m putting all of my energy into the correct places and doing everything possible to make this dream a reality.
I’ve learned so much from Bogidope.com and this community, so I thoroughly appreciate any insight! Thank you.
