Submarine Yeoman (YN)
PRD Management and Negotiating Window: Each Sailor is expected to know their projected rotation date (PRD) as well as their window of opportunity regarding negotiations for your next set of orders. If you are unsure of your PRD, look at your EDVR. If the EDVR does not list the correct PRD, contact me to determine the correct PRD. I encourage each one of you contact me within 12 months of your PRD to let me know what your desires are in regards to follow on orders and when you are within nine months of your PRD, start applying for your next job through CMS/ID. The longer you hold off on applyING via CMS/ID, the fewer choices you will have to pick from.
Of note, in the past few months I have received quite a few requests from Sailors asking to be released to fill non-submarine YN billets. Your chances of filling a non-sub YN billet are very slim. I currently have numerous YN(SS) shore jobs that need to be filled or that are gapped.
In closing, please feel free to contact me via telephone or email as needed. Watch CMS/ID and make your applications for acceptable billets. Staying in one geographical area is nice, however, be ready to relocate as required to serve the needs of the Navy. If I can keep you in one area for a few tours of duty, I will, however, you must remember that extending on board or rolling to another sea going unit in the same homeport may not always be an option. No billet = no job.
I look forward to working with all you in the near future.
