Application Timing
« on: February 13, 2017, 16:48:46 »
So, I'm currently in university getting a degree. I plan to join as an infantry soldier as soon as I am finished next April (2018). I've seen that the recent application stories show a wait time of generally around a year or so, some more some less. In a perfect scenario I would go to the next BMQ after graduating from university. Is there any way I can apply now and get everything (medical, interview, etc) finished with the recruiters waiting until I'm finished for a job offer? Or do I need to try "time" my application? If I turn down a job offer because I'm not quite finished will they be less eager to give a job offer the next time selection occurs?

Thank you,
- Curtis

Thanks! Looks like the best idea would be to apply in a month or two, and then if I get through the process early and get a job offer, ask them for a deferral to a later date.
