upcoming selection dates for pilots, the number of spots looking to be filled
GoR

Hi,

I just called and spoke with someone else, they let me know there are 49 positions to be filled as of today and the next selection date is May 31. I assume there was one on April 19th as well. If we dont hear back within the next 1-2 weeks then we were likely not selected for the April round. They did not know how many people are on the list but she said "things are looking good for you" so that is an encouraging sign.

FYI

Thank you so much for coming back here and passing on that information! I've been trying not to get my hopes up (and still won't) but that's nice to hear that there's still a chance.

Also it's nice to know I'm not the only person that's had such a long application time. Good things come to those who wait.

Very very reassuring!! Thanks for that as I am also a DEO pilot applicant.

Cheers and good luck to us all!

I believe that the selection board/committee has met sometime earlier this week to select MARS officers (Reg DEO) ? Do you have any information as to when that happened?
I haven't received any calls from my centre yet, and am afraid I wasn't competitive enough.

There was a selection last week; however it can take up to 10 business days for the detachment to notify individuals that they've been selected.  Please be patient and follow up with your detachment next week to find out the status of your file.

Any idea when the next selection will occur for DEO Nursing Officer?

There was a selection last week; however it can take up to 10 business days for the detachment to notify individuals that they've been selected.  Please be patient and follow up with your detachment next week to find out the status of your file.  If all the positions are not filled on last weeks selection then the next selection is end May.

This holds true in my case I believe as I received my offer for DEO MARS on April 12, 2017 which means I may have been selected on or around April 5th.

Congrats on your offer!

Woundering when next selection date is for vehicle tech as today is last day for April

There was a selection last week; however it can take up to 10 business days for the detachment to notify individuals that they've been selected.  Please be patient and follow up with your detachment next week to find out the status of your file.  The next selection scheduled dates for vehicle tech are 3-May & 17-May.

I was hoping to seek some information here. I'm in the application process for DEO Pilot and have just been told my name is finally (after over 2.5yrs of going through the application) in the competition list. I was wondering if anybody could elucidate on upcoming selection dates for pilots, the number of spots looking to be filled, etc, etc, etc.

There was a selection last week; however it can take up to 10 business days for the detachment to notify individuals that they've been selected.  The next selection scheduled dates for Pilot are end-May and end-June and there are plenty of spots remaining.

Hello Sir, You had posted that Armoured Officer and Infantry Officer projected selection dates are: 19 April 2017 & 31 May 2017.
Does it mean that ROTP candidates (who were already in competition list) will be selected via selection boards on said dates?

Those were DEO dates.  The projected selection date for ROTP Inf & Armd Officer is 11-May-17.  Please note that it can take up to 10 business days after that date for detachments to give the offer of employments.

I am wondering the same thing. After just over 2 years in the application process, I was placed on the competition list about half way through March, 2017. I emailed the recruiting centre and they have not been much help. They told me they have no way of knowing when the selections will take place, other than it should be soon. Can anyone elaborate on this? Is it possible that I wont be selected at all?

There was a selection last week; however it can take up to 10 business days for the detachment to notify individuals that they've been selected.  The next selection scheduled dates for Pilot are end-May and end-June and there are plenty of spots remaining. There is always a possibility that someone may not been selected.  You should discuss your options with your detachment in regards to your competitiveness.

Hi,

I have completed my CFAT, my medical, my interview, and the security check. I was informed that I was going to be put onto the competition/merit list as of last week. I have a few questions as follows:

1) Would anyone know when the selection date(s) for Construction Engineering Officer under the DEO entry plan would occur?
2) How many positions are open for this trade for this fiscal year under the DEO entry plan?

Regards,

The next planned selections for Construction Engineer DEO are 31-May-17 & 28-Jun-17; it can take up to 10 business days after those dates for the detachment to notify individuals that they've been selected.  The Intake Plan (subject to change) was 9 for this Occupation at the beginning of the fiscal year, and there are still positions remaining within that occupation at this time.

Thank you very much for the quick reply. Do you have any idea how many spots are currently open out of the nine positions for Construction Engineering Officer under the DEO entry plan for this fiscal year?

Hey all, I have been waiting in the merit list now for about 1.5 months .  I know a selection date just passed yesterday and there is another one on the 17th of May. I applied as armoured Soldier.  And they said my file was doing good. That's always a promising sign. Another thing was wondering if anyone would know if there is a possible date I should expect to wait now! I'm just anxious and excited.

Hey Buck,
I've since cleared my medical, interview and aircrew medical and was told that my file was being processed to get on the merit list. I was told at this point that this needed to be seen by 3 different people before it could get there. I was wondering what the typical time frame for this step could be? I've already been waiting for 2.5 weeks since everything came back and up until now I didn't know this step existed. I'm trying to see if it's reasonable for my file to be on the pile by the time 31 May selection date comes around. 
Any information you could provide on this transitional step would be appreciated.

PS: As a side note do you know the number of DEO slots open to AECO?

Thanks!

If this helps, I cleared all the steps on March 2nd and never heard back about being placed on the competition list so I had to follow up. Got a reply April 19th saying I had been placed on the merit list but I don't know exactly when that happened.... could've been March 9th like it could've been April 18th.

Communication between CFRC and applicants should really be improved... automated emails being sent out once your file makes it to certain phases would be a start... to anyone listening.

As of today's date 8 of the Construction Engineering positions remain open.

I was wondering when the selection dates for ROTP LogO and MARS are going to occur. Thanks.

There was a selection last week; however it can take up to 10 business days for the detachment to notify individuals that they've been selected.  There are no further selection dates in the system at this time.

I applied as armoured Soldier.  And they said my file was doing good. That's always a promising sign. Another thing was wondering if anyone would know if there is a possible date I should expect to wait now! I'm just anxious and excited.

Selections occur basically every other week for NCM occupations. It can take up to 10 business days for the detachment to notify individuals that they've been selected.  There is no set time that someone can be on the Competition List for, it depends on how competitive your file is in comparison to everyone else who is wanting to join the same occupation.

I was wondering what the typical time frame for this step could be?
PS: As a side note do you know the number of DEO slots open to AECO?

There is no typical time frame; each persons file is different and there could be complications on your file that I'm not aware of so I can't give a specific time frame.  As of today's date there are over 20 positions remaining for AEC Officer (DEO).

Communication between CFRC and applicants should really be improved... automated emails being sent out once your file makes it to certain phases would be a start... to anyone listening.

The new application system (still waiting for the release date) will have an improvement. The role out will happen in phases but once fully functional applicants will be able to log into the Application Portal to see where their file is whenever they want.

Any idea for selection dates for MP?

The projected dates are currently 24-May and 7-Jun (and will continue to occur every other week until all positions are filled); however it can take up to 10 business days for the detachment to notify individuals that they've been selected.

The next scheduled selection is 31-May, and there are 5 spots remaining for Nurse.  Processing is no longer occurring this FY for Nursing Officer, so depending where your file is at in the process it may not receive any further movement until the next Fiscal Year.

As a side note, this site is unofficial and everyone here is attempting to assist others - the Directing Staff don't get paid - it's volunteer driven to help out as best we can, in the future if the information given to you isn't what you're looking for simply say thank you and clarify.

While it's understandable that you want to have access to as much info at any given time during the process, (which can be lengthy and sometimes difficult to not feel anxious during) you were just given a terrific piece of information stating the time frame when trade selections take place.

I know all too well what it's like to sit around in limbo not knowing what is going on behind the scenes, but understand that you need to have patience. You have a time frame. If you get an exact day, then what? Then you'll start wondering about whether or not you were selected...waiting for that notification...if it doesn't come, you might look for more answers, as many specifics as you can, hoping to get a grasp on how close you are/aren't. Don't do that to yourself. Check in every now and then seeing how things are going, but sometimes having more information just leads to more questions and more anxiousness.

This is your introduction to the military...you may have already heard it...hurry up and wait. Then, when it's time and everything has finally fallen into place, it'll be GO GO GO!
