Reserves: Open House / Job Fairs [Merged]
« on: October 28, 2003, 19:38:00 »
I‘ve got pretty much the same decision. I know the Rileys are having an Open House/Recruiting Display at the Royal Canadian Legion, 828 Legion St.
Burlington, on Saturday. So, if you want to check them out, that would probably be a good time.

There will be an recruit open house for all Hamilton-area Army units at the end of March (likely 30-31 March and 01 April). All sorts of good stuff will be on display.

Date and Timing TBC

Location:
John Foote Armoury
200 James Street North
Hamilton, Ontario

This is your chance to get more info on   THE ARGYLLS, 705 Coms, 23 Service, 23 Med Coy, 11th Field, and the rhli.

Personally, the most important unit to check-out is The Argylls. Find out more at:

www.sentex.net/argylls

OR CALL 1.905.541.ARMY

I might pop in just to say "hi" to some Argyll NCM‘s who struck chords of fear into me last summer on course.

Great, thx for the replies everyone.  I really want to join the Reserves but I am torn between the Navy and to try for the Marine Engineering Mechanic or Army as an Infantry soldier.

I will be finishing my diploma in April for Mechanical Engineering Technician in Fluid Power and thought the best fit to use some of that education would be as an R312 in the NavRes' and also gain more skills while in that trade, but I wasn't sure on how pratical it would be if I'm not actually on a ship getting the experience. Plus one day in the future I would like to have an opportunity to volunteer & serve on a UN or Nato mission, but I've heard and maybe incorrectly, that it is harder to get chosen for those missions being in the NavRes' then the ArmyRes.

With the ArmyRes as an Infantry soldier I like the idea that they can closely train to the requirements of that trade every weekend required and once a week.

I'm lucky enough to have the HMCS Star and both the RHLI and Argylls to choose from.  HMCS Star is having an open house on the 27th which I will attend to get an idea and find out more info.

Is this mostly for the Reg or Res world (or combined)? Might be something to send our slack unit recruiter out on . . .
When in doubt empty the magazine.

Saw a poster for it at Regent Mall (Fredericton) and called the centre.  They said it's mostly for Reg Force, but that you could try the aptitude test either way just to see what you would qualify for if interested.

Why are they offering $30k a year plus all academic expenses, and we're only getting $18k a year plus academic expenses at RMC? Humbug, I say. Humbug.

You make it sound like the stock market - maybe if you had held out longer you could have made more money on the deal?

Hopefully this is just banter and not your actual opinion...

What a great job fair that was, Fredericton always does things in a big way! This event should become an annual event and rival the Halifax International Tattoo. Nice touch to have George Canyon as the guest of honour to enrol the new recruits, he has been on a show tour for the troops many times and is Honourary Colonel for 14 Wg Greenwood. Way to go CFRC Fredericton!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
