Job change Int Corps vs RMP

#1
Hello,
This has to be quick as I'm rather rushed. Currently half way through phase one and am joining Int Corps... However, half my platoon are RMP and from what I've heard from them RMP sounds loads better than Int Corps! Basically I'm going to enquire through the correct channels about transferring but what does everyone on here think about the comparison between Int Corps and RMP in terms of work and job satisfaction?

By the way i did plan to join Int Corps with the intent of working in a HUMINT/ more hands on role hopefully working with the infantry but from what i can see so far there's a hell of alot of classroom theoretical work and very little practical work. Or excitement for that matter.

Cheers

That shows how little you know then... Go RMP, you'll probably be better suited.

As for comparison RMP deal with fact whereas Int Corps deals with fantasy :D

I have always considered the Int Corps as I do the RAFP, an organisation with a slightly similar job but with far more intelligence and maturity. Choose the right role in the Int Corps and you will have a varied and interesting time.

If however you like working rediculous hours dealing with the arse end of the army and its pathetic problems while being treated like sh1t by your own hierachy, its RMP for you.

You are half way through Phase 1 - and so are the people who are telling you that the RMP "sounds loads better". Neither you or your mates know much about either the RMP or the Int Corps. It's your choice, but if you are that easily swayed in an argument, then take the RMP, as Petriburg says, it sounds as if you are more suited.

This is not the first time this has happened and guess what, we didn't miss those who chose to reallocated to RMP.

From your initial post I would say you are neither suited to RMP or the INT CORPS. Have you thought about transferring to be a chef?

See the "Cookery" forum for inspiration :)

RMP - make things up about people

Int Corps - disseminate made-up things about people...

Tough call :twisted:

Join the Int Corps and learn a language - e.g. Arabic. This stand you in good stead for when you find yourself in civvy street in 22 years. Its not that far away!!

We'll probably all be speaking Arabic by then anyway!

You may as well join the RMP as they now have a intelligence setup that is no doubt better than what the MI currently have in the UK and Germany!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are there any real RMPs or Int Corps types at the Basic training that could give this recruit a good insight in to what happens in either Corps?

I have grve doubts his fellow recruits have the experience to push one or the other!

To the OP.

Of course RMP sounds good from those going to it. They are bigging up it up you muppet. Simple fact is they haven´t got a scoobys if it is better than Int Corps, and probably have made stuff up anyway. As is the want of many young lads.

You could always finish basic and then attend Phase 2. If it is not for you retrade. You can retrade at any time in the Army, so don´t jump on half arrsed advise.

Stay with the Int Corps mate, RMP is shite.

Unless of course, you enjoy working silly hours, getting woken up on sleep days for mess meetings which are cancelled, and generally getting bummed!!
