Recruitment transfer question, post interview
« on: May 02, 2017, 01:28:09 »
Hello all,

Civilian applying for the forces here. I am graduating in the next few weeks and I already submitted my application in January for the infantry reserve officer trade. Did all the tests, did my first interview. During the interview, I learned some new (very pertinent) information that makes me want to join the full-time force. I want a career in the forces and I want to satisfy this calling that has been itching for far too long.

Problem is, I am so late in the application process that I am not sure what will come next. My recruiter is unavailable and I have to wait for a response from the Reserve regiment that I am applying for.

Would my next step be to go to the recruitment office to speak to a full time recruiter?

I tried to give the most information possible while respecting the confidentiality of the recruitment process. Is there any more info I need to give to receive an accurate response?

Thank you in advance for any and all help!

You may find these discussions regarding changing applications from Reserve to Regular of interest,

"Am I allowed to have a application in reserves and reg force at the same time?"

Can I have an application open for both reserves and regular force?

No, you are only able to have one application for one entry plan at any one time.

Changing my application?

I was wondering how I would go about changing my application from Reserves to Regular Force?

etc...

Reply from a Recruiter,

You cannot have two applications active at the same time, so you will need to choose which route you wish to pursue.  If your application is currently active for the Reserve Force, you will need to reapply online as a Regular Force applicant in order to start that process.

As always,  Recruiting is your most trusted source of information.

Edit as per Buck's post.

Just to update some of the information given, you shouldn't re-apply online.  The recruiting system has a new software package that will flag your file as problematic if you try to submit a new application when you already have one on the go.

Your best bet is to either visit the CFRC closest to you or email them (all CFRC's follow the email of info.location@forces.gc.ca  for example CFRC Toronto is info.toronto@forces.gc.ca) and let them know that you would like to update your profile to reflect that you wish to join the Regular Force.  Depending on where you were in the process you may need to redo some of the process steps.
