LOGISTICS SPECIALIST RATING INFORMATION
Greetings from the LS Detailers!
One of the great things the Navy allows us to do is manage our career via the Career Management System (CMS). Sailors are now authorized to submit their own application, which provides one way for you to have some control based off your personal preferences. As of October 1, 2009, per NAVADMIN 249/09 Enhanced CMS Interactive Detailing, your window of opportunity has shifted from 5 months to 7 months. That means, once you have entered your 9 month negotiating window, you have up to the seventh month to select orders….that’s only 3 looks. If you are not selected via CMS by your 7th month, you will fall into the Needs of the Navy. This policy engages Sailors to be more proactive and urges you to begin the application process early, while helping the Navy to maintain its fleet readiness and leverage. Please be sure to apply for up to 5 billets each month.
Remember, diversity is key and challenging billets are always a plus when going up for advancement. Learn to be mobile and open-minded when it comes to career choices…staying in your comfort zone is easy, but stepping outside the norm proves diligence and could be the key factor to setting you apart from your peers.
