I’m an 1830. Been stationed in the airwing on the Reagan and sat almost all the positions in CVIC and also FIWO, than JIOC, than special programs, and now my fourth command at a fleet staff.OPINTEL may be a core competency but having worked alongside Navy Intel O’s almost my whole career they do far more than “mostly PowerPoint”.
I’m about to punch out and go to the reserves but in my four active duty commands at a variety of sea and shore they all were based on opintel production and PowerPoint.
That isn’t to say that you only do PowerPoint. You have to understand the disciplines to make the slides and speak to them but you definitely will he briefing and making slides almost every day.
My most challenging job was a special program and that required a screening to get into but even that had daily PowerPoint briefs you made.
Just trying to say that PowerPoint and opintel production is going to be what you do most.
Which is why I said “Intelligence is MOSTLY PowerPoint”
