Selection Dates
« on: November 09, 2013, 19:21:06 »
Just a random topic, but, how do some people know when selection dates are? It would be interesting to know when the dates are for my selected trades. I've tried calling the CFRC, but it's near impossible to get ahold of anyone. So, what do you guys think? I applied for Sonar Op and NCI OP. Thanks in advance.

On the Halifax system, i had better luck leaving a message on the General inq. line (opt7?) compared to the completed medical, physical and interview line

21 Nov as well...

Thanks!

Darn! I won't be Merit Listed in time. Do you know when the next one is or will that be based on Nov 21 results? How many positions are available? Last I heard there was only a couple spots left. If all positions are filled will there be no more selection until the new fiscal year (Spring)?

Is there a public site that has this info?

If they don't fill the remaining spots this time around, then there will definitely be more selections later on.

"Is there a public site that has this info?"   Other than Army.ca?  I doubt it!

Hello DAA,

I have been merit listed for Mar Eng, Weng Tech and Hull Tech as of early November. Are the selection dates for these trades 21 Nov? Also, I understand that these dates are often subject to change, as Mar Eng already has once from 7 Nov. Do you think this is likely to happen again?
Thanks.

Yup....

All DEO occupations with positions remaining are 19 Nov (today) and all NCM occupations with positions remaining are 21 Nov......

After that, selections will most likely occur on a weekly basis until all positions are filled.

DAA,

Does this apply to Infantry NCM selections? You posted in another thread that Infantry NCM is selected when a given CFRC sees fit.

Maybe you could help straighten me out? (I'm currently merit listed for Infantry NCM)

Thanks! Or sorry, if my question is redundant!

PS: Thanks for every other question you've already answered for me on this forum.

That is normally the case but as the "witching hour" draws near, selections are taken out of the hands of CFRC's for the most part.  So the guy from BC who applied for Infmn, is now competing against the guy from Nova Scotia for the same job......
