After 3+ years of trying to land a career as a Railroad Special Agent (RRSA), which has consisted of checking RR job search sites daily, scouring web forums for scraps of information, submitting applications and resumes, trying to network with the few RRSAs gracious enough to share information and give advice, and generally just beating my head against the wall, I decided to start a group in the hopes it will attract folks who are serious about getting a RRSA position RRSAs who are willing to help those folks succeed.



I'm a big believer in the fact that those who succeed are the ones who network, find mentors and are willing to give as much as they receive when it comes to information and advice. I am hopeful this will grow into a group of professionals who meet, greet and exchange information in the interest of helping those who want it get into RRSA careers


Note: I hope no one gets offended by the "wannabe" label. Depending on your background, where you're from, your professional experience, that might be a negative term. No offense intended; I assume the majority of folks seriously interested in the RRSA career know you have to be a certified LEO with some experience under your belt to have a crack at it, and the "wannabe" label refers to those who are trying to make the jump to the RR.

That would be me in the area of the same interest.  Wondering if you were able to get hired yet?  I'm still trying.

Nope. Going on two years applying for everything and anything, still no love. My first real prospects are two BNSF positions that just opened up in northern AZ. I'll update if I get any bites. Stay safe.

yah me either. Still searching for the right one. I really wanted Norfolk Southern or Metra out of Chicago. No bites yet for me either and I have friends that work at both. Good luck hunting.
