BM/ET/SN E1 - E7 FTS Detailer

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 231/17.  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 jobs available. 

  • The option to apply for a job is yours.  If you submit no applications the choice will be made for you.  And, even though you may not get selected for a job 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 jobs utilize the 9850 search option, if you can find no shore jobs in your rate.  I will also consider releasing you to a shore special program on a case by case basis.

IT E1 - E7 FTS Detailer 


Notes From the Detailer.

 Please ensure you log onto My Navy Assignment when you are in your PRD window to apply for jobs.  Remember, you can apply for up to 7 jobs per month.  If you do not have access to view the advertised jobs, you can communicate with me via email or phone and I will gladly assist you.  Let me know what jobs you are interested in applying for and I will submit the applications on your behalf if you or your Career Counselor do not have access. 
If you are on shore duty, you can plan to go to sea duty and vice versa.  Understand however, there may be times when there may be a shortage of FTS sea going billets particularly for the IT's.  If that is the case, aim to do something different in your career within the IT community, i.e. Staff Command, NOSC, Seabee Unit, EOD, Seal Team or Instructor Duty.  A diverse Navy career will help immensely with your professional growth / development both as a Sailor and a person.   
Thanks and have a FINE NAVY DAY!!!
