FY 18 IWC DCO BOARD

I hope that you are not in the same unit. You are supposed to be moved to a different unit after you commission.
My understanding is I can stay in the unit and OTC Newport owns me for the next 36 months until I complete DCOIC and BQC. Then I'll need to find a unit that better suites my career. I'll be looking for DLA units after that.
 
Now that's a good question - many ppl say you can take your INTEL career down many "paths". What are these paths? What are the main types of areas that you can focus on supporting?

Correct, and once you finish BQC your designator will change (3165 ->3105) and you can start applying for billets.

If you were an E5 in unit X and were commissioned and remain in unit X, you need to find another unit.

It's not good.

That’s extremely inaccurate. You are now owned by OTCN, you are owned by the unit/command you report to.

In HUMINT as officers, is there any bonus for my language skills or do the enlisted get to have all the fun?
If you can pass the DLAB at a certain score, and depending on the language, you can get apply to receive language pay.

As much as recruiters like to tell candidates about the competitiveness of the DCO process and candidate's speaking languages, you will not be using your language skills in the Reserve as an Intel officer. I've never seen it and have known folks who spoke Mandarin, Russian, and Farsi.

I'd love to hear success stories if there are any.

where as I wouldn't turn down money - I meant it as...."Does language skills matter really as an officer, or will the enlisted do all the fun language work?"

which you answered as well! thanks.

I also encourage other success stories?!
