All affected by redundancy (and only you it seems) should have a look at this: DIN 2011DIN01-225: Talent Retention Solution (TRS). Though unclassified its not for open forums. Find it on DII if you're still here or on ArmyNet if not. Prcéis is: a scheme for the professionally qualified to put their details in a database.

Good luck job hunting everyone. Save a few for the rest of us though.
