Yep, I'm on a tasking tho, so it's not like I'm in a classroom doing nothing right now. But if the military wants me to get paid just to sit in a classroom, I'll do it, I don't care really.

Make sure you have a precise list of your employment and address history. Even if you only had a few days of unemployment or lived there for a few days, they need to know. Also, you don't have to put your previous work's manager or owner as a contact in your employment history. I had put the manager as the contact for that factory I used to work 10 years ago and he didn't know about me offhand and he doesn't have any list of labourers who used to work there. You can put co-workers - thank god I have them on my Facebook - cuz they only want someone who can verify your employment. If you work in a place through a temp agency, put the recruiter's number not someone from the company. Also, as for references, make sure you pick those people who are easy to get hold of. I had put a Member of Parliament, Broadway actor, and nobody picked up when guys from Ottawa called.

So yeah, I had to those all over again. Make sure you have precise list especially if you're someone who had various odd jobs along the way. Uni/College res are considered as your address too, even CFLRS!

Oh jeeze! Yeah I have a detailed list
Of all that (past Policing application) I tended to use some generic Human Resources numbers because hothead turn over in most of the oilfield companies I worked for in Alberta. I already know I’ll run into a couple employment verification problems... a few have closed up shop etc.

All part of it I guess, thanks for that advice though, appreciated.

Could be that there aren't any vacancies in the other element positions this year, or that someone finally realized that its stupid to have a purple trade that basically has 2 major posting areas, one as an Army unit and one in a headquarters.
