I went to my DEP Commander's Call on Wednesday as usual. Before everyone left, my recruiter had people who had gotten a job with this last job drop sign their contracts. One guy declined his slot because it was leaving before he graduated college (Oct 30). I asked my recruiter what the job was after the guy left, and it was one of the intelligence jobs that I had put down on my list when I went to MEPS. I've been holding out for the last few months for a linguist slot, but don't have that long to wait because I am at the upper end of the enlistment eligibility (Have to be in BMT before my 28th birthday, I am 27 right now). I don't want it to get to November (when slots for March will probably be out) and have to take whatever is available because I need to get into BMT.
I am so excited! That means that I will only have to wait four more months to go to BMT. And I can still cross-train into linguist later if I still want to do that.
