Don't expect anything too exciting from a static unit. You'll most likely end up doing IS, or Message Centre stuff.  Not too sure what other jobs there are at a comm sqn.

Well, my buddy is the SysOp to the CDS (he's a SigOp) and does all the CDS comm's systems and whatnot...I'd say that is 'pretty exciting' judging from what he's told me about his travels with the previous, and current CDS.

Everything happens for a reason.

Sometimes the reason is you're stupid and make bad decisions.

Getting into a position like that you'd have to be a senior Signaller, etc  As a brand new Pte no hook in a Comm Sqn you won't get that kinda stuff as you are learning your job, etc. Like anything when you get more time in, courses, etc more positions open up.

Well yes and no.  He had just re-enrolled to the Regs after being out for a few years but...true about the no-hooks but its nice for them to see that there is something other than boring jobs to do no?   ;D  You know, keep 'em motivated and all that.
