First, I would like to apologize if this has been posted before. I tried to do some research and looked for previous posts but I stumbled upon nothing. So I have applied to join the Canadian Army since November 2017. At first I was told I was successful for the CFAT but don't have enough score to join as DEO/ Officer. So I applied for the NCM trades. I was told I'd have more chances of getting into Combat Engineer rather then what I want to get into. I have a degree in B.Sc. in Earth Science and Physical Geography. So my background is more towards geomatics and drafting survey fields. I'm really hoping to get into either geomatics or drafting survey but was told I might not be qualified due to my CFAT score. So here's my question, in case I don't get into either the fields I like. What is the likelihood of me switching trades down the road once I join the army? I can see myself having a career with the CAF but most likely in something that I would love doing. Not that I'm saying I can't do combat engineer since I'm always up for new challenges and learn something new. But I just don't want my bachelor degree to go to waste. So I want to know if it would be easy to switch trades down the road. Therefore, I would welcome anybody with any information, and anyone who could give me some advice. I would really appreciate it.
Please and thank you.
