That's a great way of thinking, I believe I am slowly changing my mindset toward living in the moment but it's good to know that one's profession/job can provide some safety in older days. The signing bonus sure doesn't hurt the morale :D
I always loved sailing and spent some time working on...
Wow I am humbled by the vast amount of information you've all provided, thank you everyone for your time and input.
In comparison with the Naval Warfare Officer, the Marine Systems Engineering Officer appears to provide more potential opportunities - would you be abe to comment on that/compare...
I like to have a complete picture and consider all possible outcomes- including retirement with CAF as well as potential alternative career opportunities if things don't work out.
When it comes to the non-engineering degree, I was referring to the actual MSEO position.
Thank you once again...
Thank you, sir. I was more interested in cruise or merchant vessel engineer officer positions, but I may just retire with the CAF (provided I get in in the first place). It's good to have options.
Do you know about the education requirements, would a non-engineering MSc degree satisfy the...
Hello good people,
would anyone be willing to comment on the opportunities in the civilian sector for an ex. Marine Systems Engineering Officer? Would they be able to obtain engineering/safety officer positions on non-military vessels?
Thank you for your time.
Wonderful opportunities that normally would not be available to many. Now, when it comes to being admitted to a Medical school - that may be a whole different challenge. I truly appreciate you sharing this, dapaterson :)
Appreciate the response RichardCaan, I probably should clarify - I was asking about paid educational opportunities for those officers already serving in the Forces. I already have a Master's degree a would be joining as a DEO.
This helps tremendously, thank you kindly!
Would you be able to share your opinion on which one (signals officer vs cyber operator) you consider be a better choice for someone multiskilled, up for a challenge and willing to learn and develop, as well as quite ambitious? Much obliged :)
Thank you so much for the response!
Would you say that the signals officer, therefore, have better outlook both within the armed forces and in the civilian sector? I'm not particularly "crazy" about the cybersecurity sector but rather building a career within the army that can also translate...
Thank you very kindly for the most helpful and insightful answer.
In complete honesty, I feel very ready to plan/advise/lead vs. being strictly the "executor" however I'm aware that the hands-on skills in a field such as Cyber Ops will definitely be more valuable in the civilian world should I...
I was hoping to get some insight on the day-to-day duties of a Signals Officer, would you recommend this trade compared to the NCM Cyber Operator's?
Does anyone know if it's possible to list both NCM and an officer trade as a preference?
Thank you for your time.
P.S. do you think...
Thank you kindly for your response, Sir.
In the meantime, I managed to find an acceptable degree list on the CAF's website, it would seem that they only accept Engineering and Science degrees for the Signals Officers but like you said, if they have such a shortage, exceptions apply :)
hope everyone is having nice holidays.
Does anyone know if a Masters of Science in Data Science accompanied by a non-science bachelor's degree would be sufficient for the Signals Officer position? Am I wrong in believing that a non-science bachelor's degree most likely wouldn't be...
Once again, I must thank everyone for their input, you guys are great! As of now, I feel I will apply for Intelligence/Logistics/HCA based on my experience and your advice.
When it comes to the Navy, I would definitely go for it if I wasn't a family man now - I used to be a seaman before...
