I am so excited, I feel hotter than lava. I still can't believe it. I haven't received anything official and my recruiter doesn't seem to know what's happening, or next steps...

What do I need to know to be the best Intel officer I can be? Are there better/worse deployments for career advancement?

best regards,

You can start off by searching. Also you don’t need to create threads just from thoughts and feelings you have.

Be patient.

From a Reserve perspective, no. Current Reserve promotion stats to O4 are posted elsewhere, and hovering in the 67% area. That is, folks who have deployed to the sandbox have been passed over for selection the first time.

1. Learn how to research. This board and others have a wealth of information. Asking a question without an in-depth search can make you look stupid to your seniors, peers, or juniors. I've seen two posts from you that demonstrate you impulsively ask questions without researching. Don't do that as an intel-o.
2. Don't bullshit if you don't know something.
3. Know your resources. Even if you don't know the answer to a question someone is asking, know where to find it and get them the answer in a timely manner.
4. Find a mentor.
5. Help and support others.

As for better/worse deployments for career advancement - don't worry about this at this moment. Worry about OCS and NIOBC. You will learn more about career advancement (or you can research it) at NIOBC and at your first duty station.

Come to NAVCENT in beautiful Bahrain. "Guarantees" good follow-on orders and you can wet your feet at the operational level of warfare while you work on your pin. Always defer to the Battle Watch Captain. Oh yeah use search and research just so the N2 can dictate the facts to you.

So, I found this siiick .ppt from the intel community detailer. but I do not understand most of the content because I do not yet speak the language. I am very curious about slide 16 "competitive tours" what does competitive mean in this context?What is a "breakout?""Most 1830 jobs are 1 of 1" ? "you must remain competitive" (slide 10) . "doublestuff" (slide 4) . slide 11 billet distribution pie chart.

You'll learn about all that stuff. Get through whatever accession program first.

Holy F YES to number 2,3, and 5. Best ever intel types I worked with (in Bragg “that” Command) we’re faithful followers of those three. I saw others try to shuck and jive in front of the teams (or worse...the Boss) and were speared through their livers and cast out trying to BS their way through things. Their souls are still trying to find salvation.

Read JP 2-0, then NWP 2-01. Study the OCS gouge. When you get bored (and you will) go do a workout or something fun.

You are asking Calc 3 questions when you haven't even started Pre-Calculus yet.
