# of Job Positions for an open Posting?
« on: April 09, 2017, 03:35:49 »
Hey,

I was wondering if there is a posting for a job, or people needed in a specific category for example infantry, on forces.ca --  how many spots do they usually need for the position? Its not 1 right because i've seen a bunch of people get hired for the a same position. Im thinking its more like 5 - 10? maybe more is that right?

Thanks for the insight.

Dude

Think about it.  If there are say, 200 infanteers in a Company (Coy), and that company is all in the same geographic location, say Petawawa...wouldn't they all have the *same* posting?

I think he is asking about job postings online. Not about where you get posted after training. For example, on the forces.ca website, there are postings for various positions such as infantry. These job ads do not say how many positions are available. To the OP yes there are more than one position available for each occupation. Some occupations will  have more positions to fill than others throughout the fiscal year.

Also, you have posted this question in more than one place which is a forum no no.

The numbers are known only to our enemies with better cyber warriors than we have.

I have been trying to understand your question for some time, yet still cannot.

Firstly, "posting", in the CF, is somewhat equivalent to "transfer" in civilian life. It can also refer to one's current location or unit. One is posted to a unit into a specific position.

If you are referring to positions advertised for recruiting purposes, that is different.

Each position can only be occupied by one person. There are varying numbers of positions available in each occupation at different times. You have not "seen a bunch of people get hired for the a same position", but for the same occupation.

The number of applicants that are hired for any given occupation / entry plan changes from year to year, but as a general rule 99% of the occupations that are showing "now hiring" are looking for more than 1 person to enroll into that occupation for the current recruiting year. 

There are very few occupations where only 1 person is hired for that occupation during the recruiting year  (MLab Tech [NCM-STEP], BE Tech [Skilled], Physio [SEELM], Pharmacy [DEO], Social Worker [DEO], OR Tech [Semi-Skilled], Bioscience Officer [DEO] are the main ones coming to mind).

Speaking of, any idea when the cyber op trade is opening to civvies? Interested in the trade.

It'll be on the Forces.ca website if it does open up to direct entry. You're also not a civvie, if your profile is correct.

I'm out now but I was a nesop that vot 'd to sapper. Got out to help my folks run their gym but they've retired now and are travelling the world so I'm trying to get back in. Civvie jobs just aren't cutting it in terms of satisfaction and pride..its actually pretty frustrating and was a hard convo to have with the fiancee.

I hope you find your re-enrollment satisfying. Good luck with your application.

I've been trying to hold it together for over 2 years rotting away on PAT and it's starting to wear on me, it doesn't help that we get treated like pieces of garbage either.

I don't understand the point of your quote, are you taking a shot at me for being upset about waiting for almost 2 years for a course slot? Bravo.

Wasn't meant as a shot. Sorry if you took it that way.

You mentioned that you had been in before. That's all.
