Hi, I'm just hoping to find out about any opinions that anyone might have with regards to my potential suitability for the OPMI soldier role, which I'm really interested in. I got my BSc quite a few years ago (2000), and then my MSc a couple of years ago in scientific/technical based subjects. I've worked for all of the other years since completing my BSc in scientific/technical environments, and for the last few years particularly in research and development in competitive commercial environments (I'm 29 now). As such I'm quite used to being in a fast paced role where I have to think about complex problems and adjust my methodology to come up with new ways to make progress. Sorry if this sounds a bit like I'm selling myself here but I'm wondering if the OPMI role would appeal to someone with my kind of need for challenge and stimulation. I'm really interested in technology in general and also military technology and usage and I think I could adapt to this kind of work if it was thrown at me. I really want to experience the army life as well and I'm thinking that this kind of role would mix both aspects of what I'm looking for. Or perhaps I've gathered preconceptions about it. I appreciate that at 29 I would be tending toward the upper age of the spectrum for army entry, although I feel that I'm mature enough to gladly pass what experience of life I have onto others. Does the Int Corps tend toward more mature entrants and/or those with higher qualifications? Also, do you think that my professional experience would stand me in good stead as an applicant? Having said that, I do know that any analytical job no matter how intricate can contain repetitive mental (and possibly physical) tasks so I'm not expecting it to be something different everyday, and certainly not require hard work! I feel that it's something that I would be suited to and in turn I'm hoping it's the kind of job where you get out what you put in so long as you maintain a high level of attention and ambition. Or am I going to be severely disappointed? Also, I'm physically fit and would like a job that got me out and about a bit (I'm hoping that jobwise this doesn't contradict the stuff mentioned above). OK thanks for reading this lengthy post Any opinions welcome.
