I received a phone call this morning from the Military Sealift Command. Seems that I'm not what they were looking for in third officer or operations chief. If I had been an Operations Specialist or Quartermaster, I would have been well qualified. But since I was an Aviation Warfare Systems Operator, not so much. What disappoints me is that I can do all the things the OS or QM could do, in fact I could do it better. (If you ask me, anyway)
Oh well. They did tell me to keep trying (Right...) and thanked me for my interest. So there are jobs out there for someone. Good thing I was just being nosy and not in financial extremis. This might have been awfully disappointing if I had hungry mouths to feed, not that anything was going to happen in this endeavor.
They should have evaluated your skill sets despite the labels. Anyone with a lick of sense would have approached it that way. I've known some OS's who had the title but were completely useless.
Couldn't get past the phone screener who had a list of approved ratings, period. I tried to get in a verbal list of knowledge/skills/attributes, but I was cut off.
This is the Gubmint we are talking about, and there is no sense in the lower level drones.
Thanks for stopping by, LL.
