It was meant for me. As I said, work experience is critical for DCO competitiveness. The average selection age is something around 34 years-old. There's always the other services too. Air Force has a fairly corporate culture and in my own personal opinion the average intelligence certainly appears to be higher than the other branches. I think it'd be a solid fit for most of the DCO applicants, but the Navy has its own appeal.Maybe he meant it for someone else?
However, it's obvious lots of people apply due to misconceptions about certain designators within the Navy, or the Navy at large. For example, lots of INTEL applicants I come across expect James Bond work. The reality is largely PowerPoint mastery. Some people expect to be Anthony Bourdain-style (RIP) world travelers. That's not really the case, unless as I'm told, you're an officer stationed in Rota or Gaeta or Yokosuka and get sent on little trips around Europe or East Asia, and you'll still be underway or working most of the time anyways.
My OR said they're not allowed to share the exact details, but I got 10s. Surprised me since I got some curveball questions that I had to think a little about while answering. But software interviews are among the hardest out there, especially with all the riddles and crazy questions you have to code up on a whiteboard. So it's good preparation for anything. Casual behavioral interviews are not a problem by comparison, but curveball questions still aren't easy.By the way, some people said they got "10" in their interviews. I can't get my score except it "was good". Do you know yours?
I'm certainly not the person to ask, but I've heard the EDO community is bleeding for people more than not.don't you think the Navy is going to end up with an oversupply of DCO officers
