Has anyone on this board applied for the recent posting (FAM-OSSA-10-283305) that closed 1/26/11? If so, have you heard anything or have insight concerning where the positions may be? It states "Duty locations will be at major airports throughout the U.S. and its territories. Actual locations will be determined at a later date."

Since the posting states major airports, how do you think they might they be distributed? With the amount of new TSI-EDCH postings after this posting closed, it seems there will be a considerable increase of EDCH positions nationwide. I think I counted 100+ US Citizen postings which doesn't include the extra internal postings for current employees.

If you happen to be in this position already what can applicants expect if selected? Any info out there would be greatly appreciated
