Hey guys I am trying to get some info on a lateral transfer from NFO to either OCEANO or IW Officer. Has anyone here done this? I am an P3 NFO O4 who has not taken the bonus so I do not have any obligations to the Navy at this time so I should be clear on that end and after looking at the OceanO info page it looks like they value ASW experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Only person I know who made a NFO to CW move is a LT Roger Misso. You can find him on Linkedin.

What kind of info? Most of the people I know who made the switch were SWOs.

When you say IW officer, do you mean a cryppie?

Knowing what I know about OCEANO and IW, I'd say IW is probably an easier transition for an NFO. Unless you get really jazzed about doing METOC, OCEANO is probably not for you. Most of the OCEANOs I know end up doing staff METOC tours and rarely deal with real OCEANO jobs. As an O-4, it may be a bit harder to transition; how many 1320s are each community taking from your year group? Good luck.
