All, I am a civilian with no prior military experience currently working on my WOFT packet. Can someone tell me if I am on the right track with my WOFT essay? I wrote this early on so I can revise it over time and am checking to see if this is on the right track to a solid essay. Trying to keep it down to 3 concise paragraphs per some of the helpful information found throughout this great forum. Its in very rough form so I am hoping to continue working on it. Thanks in advance for your evaluation. "Why I Want to be an Army Aviator" As a Warrant Officer and Army Aviator, my leadership, communication, and technical abilities paired with a passion for education and strong values will serve the Army in all missions in which I am involved. I want to be an Army Aviator because the Army’s core values resonate deeply with my own and I believe this position will enable me to flourish as a leader, soldier, and a technical expert. Not to mention, piloting an aircraft for the U.S. Army is highly exciting to me and will fulfill my childhood dream of operating in the sky. Throughout the process of becoming a black belt in Taekwondo I founded my own core values. Loyalty and respect for my instructors as well as honor for the culture of my art form came first. Eventually, I founded the Junior instructor program of the American Taekwondo Association in my town and became a leader and a role model. Providing my peers a direct path to leadership gave me a valuable sense of honor, pride and great personal fulfillment. As a Warrant Officer I will be loyal to the United States Army, implement my leadership ability, and find great honor and pride in putting my life on the line to serve my country. Multi-tasking under high stress and making impactful decisions with limited information energizes me. While earning my degree in Information Technology with a 3.98 GPA, I focused on a career to develop my technical skill and ability to multitask in high stress environments. As a technical analyst, I became an expert in my field and learned how to effectively communicate in various formats with emergency services as I regularly spearheaded prioritized efforts to restore infrastructure in response to emergency situations. I strive to become an expert in any field in which I am involved. As an Army Aviator I will apply my drive to succeed, passion for education, effective communication skills and technical aptitude to master my aircraft.
I'm currently in the process of filling out my WO packet. I just have one quick question at this time. I am a civilian and filling at the Resume form 3.2. I just graduated from college in December and I have worked part-time at the college for 4 and a half years. I am still currently employed at the college part-time. The instructions say to list all civilian experience that may relate to the WO position I am applying for. I don't have any. I played sports in high school but that's about it. I guess my question is if it is common for civilian applicants to not have any relatable experience when applying? Thanks, David
Hello all, I am putting together my packet and being straight out of college, I am lacking in experience to put on my resume. I only have two jobs to list (currently still employed) that I've worked for almost a year now, one for FedEx and the other for a union in Washington D.C. I also started an e-commerce business last year but am hesitant to list it as the company doesnt make any money and am not sure if it would come off as me trying to be a big shot. Apart of me thinks that I should include anything I can while another part of me thinks its not a good idea. Any thoughts are welcomed. Thanks, Mezz
Hello all, I am shooting for the July board. I have a few LoR's inbound (unfortunately no SWO's) and I am chipping away at the paperwork. I have a draft of the essay and the resume I would like some feedback on. I used the format given on the sample packet on the USAREC site. It has been a bit of a head hurter. I want my essay to be unique but from my experience... follow the damn instructions. My wife is an English major so she will be hitting me up on that grammar, punctuation, etc. However, I would like some community professionals to pick apart the format and content. If anyone would be willing to take a look at the first iteration, I will PM it to you.
