    Component Transfer ( CT ) - Reserve to Regular

    I did not, I always sort of figured it was a straight yes or no answer. There's no harm in trying although I figure my file's probably been closed now.

    Component Transfer ( CT ) - Reserve to Regular

    At the beginning of the month I was offered the chance to CT over to the reg force. However, unfortunately I had to decline as the current company I started working for out of university was making contributions towards paying off my student loan for my first year of employment. If I had...

    5 Signs Your Coworker Is a Psychopath

    Makes sense, I wouldn't be surprised if there was a higher proportion of psychopaths in investment banking on wall street/bay street. As they are unable to process emotion I imagine they could have the tendency to be quite good at beating the market and not let their emotions get in the way of...

    What are you listening to/fav type of music

    I'll probably get a little flak for this but.. Ed Sheeran Galway Girl is just too catchy for me not to imagine that was actually me going on a pub crawl with Saoirse Ronan.

    What book are you reading now?

    Currently reading the intelligent investor by Ben Graham, its more of a project book as it requires more in depth analysis so when I want to read something less... intense? (Might not be the best word choice) I'm reading Outlaw Platoon.

    Component Transfer ( CT ) - Reserve to Regular

    Interesting, I did not know that I'll have to check the DWAN then. 1000+ files seems a little much for one person to handle... Thanks for the insight!

    Component Transfer ( CT ) - Reserve to Regular

    I'm currently waiting on a component transfer to the Reg Force (just like everyone else) and was given the email for my broker over a month ago in order to find out the status of my transfer. I've since emailed him almost 4x in the last month trying to find out whats up. Nothing. I figure it...

    Political Correctness

    SeaKing Tacco is not lying, The majority of these political science, anthropology/sociology/psychology arts streams are very pro cultural marxism/left-wing/political correctness Thankfully I chose the economics stream where this kind of stuff is irrelevant but this whole political correctness...

    Pride to be in the forces and everybody is leaving

    I'm speaking based on experience and stories of those around me, but in terms of the private sector things are very bleak. Hiring for things such as financial services, engineering, business and IT seem to be almost non-existent, especially for young folk (such as myself). In some cases it might...

    Kit Question: Socks and boots

    Unfortunately all the instructors on my course know that most of us have deficiencies in kit. At the moment I'm wearing borrowed trousers so that I can even show up to course in uniform. (at least I have two wash basins though :facepalm:) At my regiment our QM is aware of the problem and is...

    Kit Question: Socks and boots

    To combat the current boot problem we seem to be facing, I was issued SWAT's by my regiment so far they're leaps and bounds over the issued boots I was borrowing from one of the guys at my regiment. I'm just wondering what experience any of you have wearing these boots during the winter with...

    Component Transfer ( CT ) - Reserve to Regular

    While I can see the amount of time it takes to transfer is a random variable, would it still be a good idea to start the process early if that's possible?

    Canadian Forces Aptitude Test (CFAT) [MERGED]

    Hello, I recently took the CFAT today and didn't fare as well as I had hoped. Nonetheless I will be pursuing a retake of the CFAT at the earliest possible time after the 3 month wait. My initial question is: Is there a variation in the required CFAT scores among the different trades of...
