It never hurts to know people. I am a believer in timing and luck as well. Get your app in as early as possible and continuously update it. We are bound by contract to bring a number of guys in through flow agreements. This will initially limit our ability to hire off the street guys. Our contract is written so that DAL interviews 35% (I believe this number is accurate) DCI guys. This is actually lower than the percentage they will interview. In 2010, it was 50/50 interviewed and I believe DAL hired a higher percentage of civilian than they did Mil. You guess is as good as mine.
