Notes from the Detailer
My motto: If you don’t know, research it. If you can’t figure it out, ask. It’s your career; you should be the one driving.
Ensure you’re familiar with the changes to detailing practices outlined in NAVADMIN 226/12. All Sailors will follow their Sea Shore rotation, which you can find in NAVADMIN 395/02. If you’re a conversion in, your first tour will be at a Type II command. The only way that won’t happen is if there are no sea billets available.
The option to apply for a billet is yours. If you submit no applications the choice will be made for you. And, even though you may not get selected for a billet you apply for, at least you made an effort to shape the course of your career. I am available and willing to communicate through phone or via email. You do not have to be in your window to reach out, feel free to contact me anytime.
Shore opportunities continue to be a struggle. When searching for billets utilize the 9850 search option, if you can find no shore billets in your rate. I will also consider releasing you to a shore special program on a case by case basis.
