  1. Hi guys i have recently been able to resubmit my application after a years deferral but have also just been offered a
    new job.

    This job will include doing 5 weeks interrupted training which means i will not be able to attend the ACIO for meetings/tests/interviews during this time.

    The question i have is how do you think the recruiting officer will look at the situation? Will he see it as me showing a degree of commitment towards my training or will he see it as not having enough dedication to join the army?
  2. I think you answered your question, get back to the ACIO when your less busy. You can then use the 5 weeks training as an example of your dedication.
  3. Thanks for the reply

    I just dont want it to look like i dont want to join up.
