    You might give the search function a try...this has been asked a number of times and in the not too distant past.

        I applied to about 15 departments, tested with 4 and took the first offer I got. The first offer just so happened to be my first choice. win/win
        Negative Ghostrider, the pattern is full.

          I applied to 1 department. Hired on as a reserve and waiting on an opening to move to PT or FT.

            I sent a bunch of resumes, cover letters and applications out at once. I was hired within two months of graduating the academy. Within those two months I probably went to about five interviews with five different PD's. I bombed the first couple of interviews so bad I still laugh at myself today. Thankfully, I kicked butt on at least one of them : )

                1..... and I think it was a good choice. Be sure to do your research. If you apply to a lot of different agencies, it might appear as if you aren't dedicated to getting a job where you really want to.

                  18 attempts, 4 with the department I finally got hired with. It was my first choice from the start.
