For those asking about DEO selections.  Last week was mainly NCM (there were a few DEO, but not many) selections.
Next planned DEO selection will be for January; and still may not be that many due to limited space on Basic Training courses for Officers.

LogO and HCA selection dates
« Reply #1581 on: December 16, 2017, 10:32:30 »
Hello,

I was wondering when the selection dates for LogO (first choice) and HCA (second choice) are (for DEO)? I can graduate University this summer (end of July) with a general Bachelor's of Business Administration (without specialization), or next winter (end of December) with Finance specialization.

If one of the trades should still be open by the beginning of August I could just get BBA without specialization instead of waiting another year before enrolling. However, if both trades should be closed by the beginning of August then there is no point of getting a general BBA instead of one with Finance specialization since I would have to wait another year before enrolling anyway...

Please note that I will not be answering questions revolving how many positions remain for occupations between 21-December-2017 and 7-January-2018.  I will still be on the board during my Christmas Break to answer other questions but I will not have access to Intake Numbers or Positions remaining during that time frame.

Thank you all for your understanding during that time frame.

Hi Buck,

EME DEO didn't seem to have any candidates selected recently. Is there a chance that the remaining positions will be filled by the end of this fiscal year? Or when the next BMOQ is confirmed?
I've considered adding SIGS to my trades at the expense of being removed from the competition list till re interview but my recruiting centre strongly suggested against this.

Thanks,

Yes the EME DEO positions will be filled by end of FY; for those that are on the competition list it appears that there will be a possible selection on 18 January; and a possible 2nd on 31-January.  Ultimately it's your decision if you'd like to be considered for Sigs but there are more positions remaining for EME for FY 17/18 than there are Sigs.

Hi Buck

I have been following this thread for awhile now and seems like you are very quick in replying and great help. I wanted to share my situation with you and see if you would be able to give me some input.

I am applying for AEC and I had submitted all my medical reports to my local recruiting centre last month. They had told me that my file has been send to Ottawa for air factor evaluation before Christmas. Until my air factor is awarded I wouldn't be put on the competition list.

I was wondering if there are still available positions for AEC for year 17/18? Given that I do not yet have my air factor awarded would I be selected for year 17/18 or I would have to wait for 18/19 recruitment?

There is still AEC for 17/18 but being that your medical was just sent to the RMO (Ottawa) before Christmas you may not be selected for 17/18.  Files have come back quickly in the past, but based on what I'm hearing applicants state about the length of time their files are in Ottawa I want to manage your expectations on the side of safety which is likely not getting it back for 17/18.
Again this is purely based on my observations of the wait time of other applicants at the moment.  Your best source of information on this sort of question is your respective CFRC.

Hi Buck,

Is it safe to assume that the next DEO MARS selection process will be near the end of January. Also is their any news about how many positions are still open for this fiscal year? last I heard it was about 50%.

Thanks

Hi Buck, hope you had a good holiday. I applied in July and was merit listed mid~October for DEO infantry. I was told I had a strong application. I'm wondering what the status on selections / positions open is and if BMOQ is still backlogged ? Thanks in advance.

Same boat here.

I Initially applied for Infantry DEO in July 2016 but because of pre-sec did not get to do my interview and medical till November 2017. My interviewer told me to expect to hear back in Jan/Feb 2018, and I was competition listed within the same month.

According to Buck and my local RC around 20% is still open for Infantry DEO for the remaining fiscal year, so between 15 to 18 spots left I guess (accurate as of late-December 2017).
 
Apparently there will be selections around Jan 17/18 (dates not year lol). Considering the number of spots left I'd say there will likely be a selection for Infantry DEO at some point this month, which means a mid-March BMOQ. At least that is what I'm hoping for. Anyone with a better knowledge of how things are gonna go down please enlighten Paynetrain and I - should help to ease our anxiety a bit. Many thanks.

Hello!

I am applying as DEO into the Regular Force (Army) and top choices are Intelligence Officer and Training Development Officer. I'm currently a teacher and curious what the timeline is for the whole process, specifically if there are certain blocks when BMOQ happens so that I would have an idea when I'd need to be ready to leave my current job?

If anyone has any experience in either field would they mind answering some questions??

Thank you!

hey jellybean,  the positions you are applying for are very limited in space and therefore it is unlikely you will get an offer unless your CFAT score is extremely high (more likely for training dev officer, unlikely for intelligence officer). If you offered a position the timeline is usually 6 to 12 months from the start of your application. But I wouldn't get your hopes up too much to be honest.

Selections for DEO are planned for beginning-mid month right now; not end Month.
Please note that "MARS" no longer exists, it has been replaced by Naval Warfare Officer (NWO) - same MOSID
As of today's date there are approx. 40% positions remaining for NWO DEO for FY 17/18.

Hi Buck, hope you had a good holiday. I applied in July and was merit listed mid~October for DEO infantry. I was told I had a strong application. I'm wondering what the status on selections / positions open is and if BMOQ is still backlogged ? Thanks in advance.
Yes BMOQ is still backlogged (i.e. there are more people who require the course than positions available on the course at the moment).
As of today's date there are approx. 20% positions remaining for INF DEO for FY 17/18.

Apparently there will be selections around Jan 17/18 (dates not year lol).

Please keep in mind this is a projected selection date; many factors can occur to change that date, also please pay attention to the Note on the following thread: https://navy.ca/forums/index.php?topic=125930.0
Time Frame: After a selection it can take 3-5 business days for a CFRC to be informed of who was selected, from there it can take another 5-7 business for an applicant to be informed (depending on the workload of a CFRC, and when the applicant is set to do BMQ/BMOQ).  This translates to a total of 8-12 business days from when a selection occurs to when the applicant is informed of the offer.

There are droves of topics on here about timelines; mariomike has a tendency of posting them because he's nicer than I am :-)
In reality everyone's timeline is different base on many factors including your medical, security check and if you're applying to an occupation that has limited spots.
For FY 17/18 there is still 1 spot for INT and 1 spot for TDO; the numbers are small for 18/19 but that can be said for the majority of DEO occupations - please see the following link for a forcast of SIP for 18/19: https://navy.ca/forums/index.php?topic=127069.0

Kratz,
I've been going off what I've read from other recruiters on these boards but feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

The "advice" that you gave is very generic and is true for most DEO occupations.
There are only 8 occupations with a SIP bigger than 15 and only 2 with a SIP larger than 50.

Just wanted to say thanks for the information. It is much appreciated during the application process and eases the waiting period.

For FY 17/18 there is still 1 spot for INT ...

Now I'm disappointed at the recruiter who told me back in late Spring of last year that there were no more positions available for DEO Int (which my degree is well suited for) and I settled for DEO Log.

Thanks for the link. I am very happy INF has 80 available seats for 2018-19. Just a question, I am in merit list for Infantry DEO since Sept 2017. Do you think as I am naturalized citizen ( although security clearances were all done fine) or I am in early thirties or My education from outside ( I also provide equivalent certificate and successfully accepted) will be deciding factors in competition list for my selection?
