The quickest way to get promoted is...

#1
Hi,

Thought I would start this off. I know a lot of people will say things like walk suck the right **** ha

However, in order to get through the ranks...this is what you could do differently...

Join up as an RMP (why I hear you ask?) 3 year guaranteed full screw... retrade to PTI core. 1 more year sergeant... then i get stuck... i cant think of a quick promotion trip from here up the ranks any further?


Can you...?

*Edit*
This is a hypothetical joke, not to be taken seriously!

Dont forget gaining the respect and admiration of all around you as you climb the ladder

Buy a derelict oil platform. Unilaterally declare independence from everyone. Appoint yourself to any rank you see fit. I'd recommend Colonel as that seems to be a good, respectable rank for any tin-pot dictator without the idiot bling of appointing yourself Grand High Field Admiral of the Skies or something as equally silly like that.

If you're married, appoint your wife as Ack Adj and point out that her job description, as seen in every military unit in the known world, involves giving her superiors as much oral sex as is demanded.

I'm fairly sure most trades require you to be a Class 1 before you can promote, therefore if you keep re-trading you will have to wait to get to the requisite level. The easier option would to wait till full screw then go down some random recruiting/training role and stay there. I've met a few of those and they always add lots of value once they return to trade (last bit might not be true)

Im going to play devils advocate here and say the OP is looking back at his 22 years at Lance Jack with jaded eyes and wondering retrospectivaly if he could have maybe done a shade better.

No point asking me though, now if you want advice on how NOT to get promoted, well.......

You could always offer yourself as 'entertainment' in the WOs & Sgts Mess dressed as a ladyboy and do a pole dance routine in front of the Tara's table on a dinning in night, as he is entertaining visiting Taras from nearby Regiments.......

Haha, Thanks gang. I knew that one would get a lot of responses. oh, for the record.... I did not do 22, I wasn't promoted quickly, I did see the regimental tug of war team / lady boys get promoted around me and I agree with everything else everyone has said! :)

One other way I can think of getting promoted early, Join up be a fucking nobend, go AWOL a few times, grass your self up for drug addiction... Then turn it all around and be good enough to be classed as normal, everyone will comment on how you have turned it all around and that your a real example of a a good soldier... Then you get noticed and therefore promoted :)

haha. That's a good one, they were always my favourite!

I have edited the first post as I see some people take things a little too seriously in the NAFFI bar
