I'm looking for a job and I'm wondering whether mentioning the TA on my CV is a good idea or not. I know that you're obliged to inform your employers if you're in the TA but the companies that I'll be applying to aren't my employers (yet!) so I don't think that's an issue. If I was involved in recruiting I would consider TA membership as a plus point (as it shows leadership qualities, team work, reliability etc). However, in this day and age I suspect that some potential employers would see 'TA' on your CV and just read it as 'could be absent for months on end when he's sent to a sandy place'. Has anyone had any feedback (good or bad) from potential employers when the TA has been mentioned in interviews? As I've said, I personally think that the pros outweigh the cons but that's not important - what would the average employer think?
