SNLR

#1
Alright lads,

Fcuked up rather big time and got into a fight in phase one, am expecting serious ROPs or SNLR and was wondering in civvi street how this would effect job hunting and such.

Additional information, I would like my career to continue but if worse comes to worse and I get discharged would it rule me out of a career in the Fire Brigade? I am also fully aware attempting to rejoin is rather futile but are there any, if rare sucsess stories? Cheers

If you've only been in that short of time, don't even put "Army" on your CV. Forget it ever happened. No-one's gonna know.

Putting it on your CV will only get future employers asking why you were in for such a short length of time.

Good point P_A would I not be required to include it in a CV?

I have omitted a couple of short contracts from my CV. The reason being that they were only of 5 - 8 weeks in length. Some potential employers don't like to see short jobs on CVs. This is because they don't know the length of the contract, and can only assume that you were shite and "let go"

So I just closed the gap by exaggerating the end/start date of the jobs either side.

It must have been some scrap for them to be consdering you SNLR. Who's told you that you may be for the boot?

Seriously? In my day "inter Coy" boxing was actively encouraged as an extra-curricular activity. ******* queers.

If you leave a gap in your CV, no matter how small, someone is going to ask why.

You could simply put (for example)

Jan 2011 - Aug 2011 Sales assistant, Tesco
Aug 2011 - Oct 2011 Recruit, British Army
Nov 2011 - Present Labourer, Bodget & Scarper Builders

or

Jan 2011 - Jan 2012 Portfolio based work, including Tescos; Britsh Army, Bodget & Scarper Builders

I'd worry about it if it happens chap, I think the important question here is did you win? Your CSM will certainly have an imput on your discharge, but the decision for you to go is not his.

RMP are popping over today according to my full screw, so I'll have a better idea on the situation, it could well be the CSM was majorly pissed off when I was in his office last month (the day after the incident) a month on it's all been silent on the front but today's the day i'm hopefully told what's going on.

How about the lad books an appointment with his Pn Commander and says he has been a bloody fool, has learnt his lesson, will take his medicine but that he is desperate to stay in. I don't think that would hurt.

What do you blokes think?

The RMP! What happened to O.C.'s orders? If you got in a scrap and for some obscure reason, it was noticed, you would get marched in front of the OC and dealt with. Sign of the times?

Bit like suede and goretex boots and no gate guard duty. :)

Make sure you have an officer or SNCO you trust, sit in on the interview.

Also remember you do not have to say anything, think before you speak.

I recall 2 RGJ R Coy CSM asking me "did you kick or hit the lad when he was on the floor?" I replied "no sir." To which he replied "Good, when a man is on the floor he's out of the fight. No get out of my office!"

Different bloody world now!

If the RMP are involved, there is more to this than a couple of Phase 1's leathering each other - unless your opponent has been hospitalised.
If it is a straight forward bit of sprog milling, then I agree with other posters. Rather than looking at opportunities outside HM Forces and worrying about your CV, you should be fighting like hell to retain your "career" (not in the biblical sense, I hasten to add).
Also, if you are at an AFC, what the hell are you doing posting on the Internet on a working day?!
I suspect you might be holding something back.

When were you there? I had a platoon commander who went on to become CO of 2 RGJ. He was simply the best Plt Commander I ever served under. There was an eastenders actor who shared his name. The surname was Cottam. You ever come across him?
