lightfighter Posted October 13, 2013 Report Share Posted October 13, 2013 Hello Everyone, I am an active duty SPC 11B looking into WO selection. I am currently working on a 153A packet and could use some guidance. I'm working on taking the SIFT test whenever I can get it scheduled through my local ed center. This is proving difficult due to my units operation tempo. I should be able to take it sometime within the next month. I am also in the process of trying to find a senior warrant officer to interview me and possibly write me a letter of recommendation. However, being an 11B I do not often have the chance to work with Aviation WO's. Another issue is that my resume seems to be lacking. I have not had the chance to deploy, and I have not had the chance to attend any army schools. I was slotted to go to Ranger school last year, but I was sent to language training to learn Pastho instead. I spent 6 months learning Pashto before my brigade was supposed to deploy, and after the course my company was selected to be one of the PTDO companies. After finishing 4th in the language training program, I was supposed to be moved to one of the deploying companies, but the Battalion level leadership decided that soldiers with infants at home were not going to deploy. My daugter was 5 months old so I was moved back to my original company. So other then 3 years of college, and being level 1 Pashto, I do not have much for experience. Is there anyway to beef up my resume to make me more competitive? Would being a CPL help my chances of selection? I am in a leadership position and should be picking up CPL soon. Any advice on the packet, and selection process would be greatly appreciated. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
