Deadline for Cover Letters from WOs applying for senior appointments and promotions  

Arrival Time:  20:00
Location:   John Graves Simcoe Armoury
 

All Warrant Officers returning to the corps in September:
There will be a Merit Review Board on Tue 13 Sep (File Review) and Tue 20 Sep (Interviews) to determine our appointments to the Sergeant Major positions (TSM, SSM (2) & DSM).
Promotion to Master Warrant Officer may or may not coincide with these appointments.

We will be accepting applications from current WOs in the form of a one page cover letter, due by email to the Administration Officer (2799army@cadets.gc.ca) by 20:00 Tue 6 Sep. Late applicants will receive lower marks on preparation or may not be accepted if applications have already exceeded the number of positions available.

The cover letter from WOs must state why you should be appointed either TSM, SSM or DSM and why you should be promoted to MWO.

Include anything you have accomplished outside the Canadian Cadet Organization eg scholastic & athletic achievements at school or on a sports team, involvement in a community service, membership in another organization, etc. You do not need to list your awards and qualifications from within cadets as we have that info in our system and it will be considered while we review your file.

Those who are unsuccessful for an appointment will automatically be considered for the next position below eg SSM if not selected for DSM and TSM if not selected for SSM).

Include in your cover letter the times you are available for an interview on Tue 20 Sep (will only go to Mon 19 Sep if too many applicants for Tue):
18:00-18:25 (if necessary); 18:30-18:55; 19:00-19:25; 19:30-19:55; 20:00-20:25; 20:30-20:55, 21:00-21:25 & 21:30-21:55 (if necessary).

Assignment of timeslots for interviews are on a first come-first served basis and will be posted as they are determined. We will only go earlier than 18:30 or later than 21:30 if absolutely necessary.

You must arrive 10 minutes before your assigned interview for your uniform inspection. Being late and/or unprepared will cost points!

If you have any questions of what goes into a cover letter, please contact any of the officers or CIs. They cannot review your cover letter, but can offer some advice.

Do not leave this to the last minute. If you think you deserve the added responsibility and prestige of such an appointment and hopefully a promotion, start working on your cover letter now! You can always submit your cover letter early!!

Good luck!!!
