RN recruit prospect/advice?

Specialties Government


Curious what response I will recieve from this....

Quick backround: I began talking to a recruiter in 1/2010. I graduated in 3/2011(RN-BSN). All paperwork turned in 3/2011 for application. I was just given a MEPS. All the peer referrals that I turned in have "expired" so I have to find the people and have them resign/date their referrals. I had to revise the application questionairre and CV. My recruiter doesn't seem to have her stuff together. Many delays on her part. I have done all that she has asked ahead of time and have had to repeat most of it due to length of time. I am at the 20month mark since beginning talks with her.

When is it too long to wait for a recruiter to do what they say they will do? I have been encouraged to speak with her CO. I understand that most recruiters are under tremendous workloads but, this is my life and I have life plans too. I don't want to go to her CO unless it were absolutly necessary. Plus, I don't want to sabotage my entry into the AF.

What say you?

try to see if the zip code where you work is able to change the recuiter. Not sure if it will work but when I joined the Army my work zip put my recruiter in PA and my home zip was NY. I ended using the PA recruiter. Not sure if you can do this with the AF, but it is a idea.

I lived 45 miles away from my work, and putting in my work zip code completely changed the city/state for my recruiter. Good luck ... I hope you get it sorted out.

P.S. You're looking at Air Force, right? There is always the Army. :D

It all depends on the boundary line of the recruiting district. Like the lotto use to say, "Hey,you never know".
