I have submitted my application online through GoCoastGuard.com and have tried to follow up with a recruiter. Would like to get in contact immediately to start my career with USCG.If you have any suggestions on what I should do next to expedite the recruiting process please let me know my options.
You have to understand that CG recruiters are spread VERY thin. As an example, there are ony five recruiting offices for the entire state of CA. Compare this with the US Navy which has three offices within a 10 mile radius of my home in Los Angeles. Some states have no CG recruiting offices and people that live in those states have to go to the RO in another state.
I applaud your enthusiasm in wanting to the recruiting process moving, but understand that the military moves at it's own pace. However, if it's been more than a week or two since you sent your application, I'd take CCCSD's suggestion and reach out to the nearest RO.
