Recruiting Center: Moncton
Regular/Reserve: Reg F
Officer/NCM: Officer (DEO re-enrollment)
Trade Choice 1: INT
Trade Choice 2: SIGS
Trade Choice 3: NONE
Application Date: 21 Jun 2006

Current Status: I was hoping that some of my "soft" qualifications would count for more towards INT, so I'm a little disappointed that my odds are so slim since I have a great passion to be an INT O.  However, adapt and overcome.  I have no doubt that SIGS will be a very interesting career and assuming that in three years I still want to do INT I can always OT.  The MCC confirmed that as of current policy, it is acceptable to OT from SIGS to INT.  Now playing the waiting game for news about selection and/or an actual offer.


Sigs interesting, hmm, depends what you like.  An OT good luck with that.  Sure, the MCC will say that is the policy, but is it reality.  Do you know if you can OT out of Sigs?  Guess that depends on how short they are for Sigs.  Do you know how many Sigs they are short in the CF?  I suggest you do a bit of research because your assumptions, while logical, are flawed. 

I'm Sigs, joined in 1986, still in.  OT's are tougher than you think.

Great Interview, aced the CFAT. (Don't want to get a big head, but I was told it was the 2nd highest score my councillor had ever seen  ::))
Told I am both qualified and competitive for all my choices, and there are a number of available positions for my number one choice.

GOT MY OFFER!!!  ;D Guess all the pointy-end types filled in all the BMQ dates before Christmas, as I won't be starting till January... I guess I should go get a job for a month then  ::). At least I'll be sworn in on 14 December - Better get my suit cleaned. Oh, and go for a run.

Have high blood pressure (142/90), as well as an irregular heartbeat and a resting hart rate of 96 beats per minute. Need to see my family doctor to see what the problem is.

Went to see my family doctor and he is referring me to a specialist (cardiologist). Apparently my heart has a mind of its own as it skips beats, makes up beats out of the blue irregularly, and its left side is working too hard for some reason. So far not looking to good  :(

Apparently I missed an email which held up my file. Three months from application date to job offer is fine with me. Just thought I'd mention that I learned so much from this site. I didn't post much but read a whole lot. I appreciate this site and the people that make it what it is. Thank you.

Recruiting Center: Moncton
Regular/Reserve: Reg F
Officer/NCM: Officer (DEO re-enrollment)
Trade Choice 1: INT
Trade Choice 2: SIGS
Trade Choice 3: NONE
Application Date: 21 Jun 2006

Contacts:
- 30 Jun 2006, CFRC/D received my pers file.
- 3 Jul 2006, CFRC/D needed add'l info to request my med docs.  I provided it immediately. 
- 14 Jul 2006, Advised by CFRC/D that in order to be selected for INT I'd need to provide add'l information/certification, etc.  I provided it to them the next day.
- 7 Sep 2006, Called by CFRC/D.  My OMDs have arrived.  Huzzah!  Med and Interview scheduled.

Aptitude completed:
- Waived, in theory, but I've been advised I may be requested to write it again.
- 27 Sep 2006.  CFAT is now officially waived.  My prior scores qualified me for both INT and SIGS.
Med completed:
- 27 Sep 2006.  Complete.  No issues at all, no doctor's notes required.

Interview completed:
- 27 Sep 2006.  Complete.  A "grueling" one and a half hour interview.  It went extremely well.  I will be listed for both INT and SIGS although I've been advised that my odds for INT are slim.  As it was put to me, the door is almost closed but it isn't quite locked.  One issue, beyond not being very competitive for a very demanding board, is that the INT board sits after the DEO board so it seems probable that I'll get an offer for SIGS before the INT board even sits so I'd be taking a heck of a risk in turning down SIGS to wait it out for INT.

PT Test completed:
- 27 Sep 2006. Waived since the new directive 1 Oct 2006 makes it no longer necessary.  Advised to continue training as CF Express will be done early in BOTC and failure will result in placement on a Warrior Platoon.  I'm not at all worried about passing the test in Basic.

Position Offered: -
Enrollment Date: -
Basic Training: -

The INT board has looked at my application and has not selected me.  With only 1 INT (Land) position left nationwide the odds of it going to me are essentially non-existant.  On the advice of the CFRC I've changed my first selection to SIG and second to INT.

And here's where things enter the twilight zone...

First, I've been given an IAP bypass based on my experience and former military service  :o  For those that know my situation, I'm as surprised as you are... this was very much unexpected.  Beyond the obvious that I won't need to do IAP, the fringe benefit of this as it was explained to me is that I bypass board selection and can be selected locally by the production officer.

Second, I've been told that since I'm now first choice SIG I can bypass board selection that way as well, since it is an OSL occupation.

So net net, I should have been selected locally on two tracks as it was explained to me.  I will confess, that I was very confused by the explanation and there is a very good chance that there is something I'm not getting.

So, here's the strangeness.  The local production officer did in fact select me for SIG and requested a job offer allocation; however, they've hit a snag. Despite the fact that on two accounts I should bypass board selection, I was considered for SIG on the 14 Nov general service officer selection board and was not selected.

The mystery to the MCC and production officer is:
a) Why my file was considered at all by the general service officer selection board, since it is OSL and I have an IAP bypass, and hence it should be the production officer's choice?
b) Why I wasn't selected since I should have been pretty high on the list and the SIG officer occupation is pretty wide open?

The production officer is looking into it, and will let the MCC know who will then contact me.  The MCC has said he'll either be contacting me with:

a) That something got borked and it shouldn't have gone to the board and so a job offer as SIG O.
b) That nothing was wrong, they misunderstood something, that my file should in fact go to the selection board and if it wasn't selected then it wasn't selected, in which case better luck in 12 Jan 2007 (the next board)

!!! WARNING !!!  Take everything above with a grain of salt.  The explanation first hand was very confusing so this second hand account is certainly doubly so.  Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES should you assume or take from this post that if you have an IAP bypass or SIG as your first choice that you don't need to go through the regular process.  I'm not a recruiter.  My word is not law. !!! WARNING !!!

Basic Training Begins: ? (hope to have December 9 2006)


I was wondering is some one can answer a quick Question. Since they discover it was not an enrollment after they enrolled me (2 days after), they had (like i said to them all along) to treat my case as a transfer.

Does any one know how long can that process take...I'm transferring from CIC but I'm in the supplemental reserve (not sure of the term in English), to the Pres.

I was told on the 8 November that they were transferring my case to the brigade so they could verify it.  :'(

but will it take long? ???

I'm a little depress about since I told them from the beginning that I was transferring, but I shut my mouth and did what I was ask for. but now I'm seeing December 9 part time BMQ startin coming way to fast and after, they are not sure when the next BMQ starts . Thanks

- 14 Jul 2006, Advised by CFRC/D that in order to be selected for INT I'd need to provide add'l information/certification, etc.  I provided it to them the next day.
- 7 Sep 2006, Called by CFRC/D.  My OMDs have arrived.  Huzzah!  Med and Interview scheduled.

Aptitude completed:
- Waived, in theory, but I've been advised I may be requested to write it again.
- 27 Sep 2006.  CFAT is now officially waived.  My prior scores qualified me for both INT and SIGS.
Med completed:
- 27 Sep 2006.  Complete.  No issues at all, no doctor's notes required.

Interview completed:
- 27 Sep 2006.  Complete.  A "grueling" one and a half hour interview.  It went extremely well.  I will be listed for both INT and SIGS although I've been advised that my odds for INT are slim.  As it was put to me, the door is almost closed but it isn't quite locked.  One issue, beyond not being very competitive for a very demanding board, is that the INT board sits after the DEO board so it seems probable that I'll get an offer for SIGS before the INT board even sits so I'd be taking a heck of a risk in turning down SIGS to wait it out for INT.

PT Test completed:
- 27 Sep 2006. Waived since the new directive 1 Oct 2006 makes it no longer necessary.  Advised to continue training as CF Express will be done early in BOTC and failure will result in placement on a Warrior Platoon.  I'm not at all worried about passing the test in Basic.

Position Offered: *Unofficial* 1 Dec 2006
Enrollment Date: -
Basic Training: Due to IAP Bypass, middle of March seems likely

It is as official as it gets without the piece of paper.  The CFRC has advised me that my file is now marked "File for offer" which mean an offer of employment is en route.  It is unknown as to whether it is intelligence or signals; however, common sense says that it 99% for sure signals, but I'll hold on to that hope for intelligence until I hear officially.

I'd like to thank the fine staff at CFRC/D Moncton for tolerating my weekly phone calls and doing a generally excellent job of explaining things.
