I've been browsing the forum for a while now and now I've decided to make my first post. Basically, I've just finished university and I got the application for SOLDIER recruitment in easter. I got 55 on the BARB. Could be better I guess. I went straight for soldier because I feel I am not at that level in leadership and management yet, and having a degree doesn't make you a leader. The roles I've chosen so far are as follows: 1 - Int Corps (OPMI) 2 - EW Sys Ops 3 - Tank Crewman (Recce) in the QDG Like I said before, I know I'm not officer material right now but I would like the chance to show a degree of initiative and to an extent, get promoted. I was wondering if I would get the chance to do this in these roles and if not, what you would suggest. I have, I guess, both physical ability and technical aptitude. I understand my third choice may seem odd and it was a toss up between that, CMT, or an observer in the RA. Something without DV and a bit more combat oriented if you will. For those wondering, my degree is Law from Aberystwyth (not an ex-poly) and it is almost certainly going to be a 2:2 when I formally graduate in July. Oh and I know every soldier has the chance to get promoted and it's always crucial to go with a job you enjoy (which I will), I just want to get a sense for things.
