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

Arrival Time:  1900
Location:   John Graves Simcoe Armoury
 

All Warrant Officers (WOs) returning to the corps in September:

There will be a Merit Review Board on Tue 2 Sep, and if necessary Wed 3 Sep, for 2 appointments to Squadron Sergeant Major (SSM), 1 to Drill Sergeant Major (DSM) and 1 to Regimental Sergeant Major (RSM) for a total of 4 appointments. Promotion to Master Warrant Officer (MWO) 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 1800 Tue 26 Aug. Late applicants may receive lower marks on preparation or may not be accepted at all.

The cover letter simply states why you should be appointed either RSM, DSM or one of 2 SSMs 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. We do not need you to go into detail about awards and qualifications from within cadets as we have that info in our system and it will be considered while we review your file.

Include in your cover letter the times you are available for an interview on Tue 2 Sep or if absolutely necessary, Wed 3 Sep. Assignment of timeslots for interviews are on a first come-first served basis. We will only go to Wed if someone cannot attend on Tue evening for a valid reason or we have too many applicants to interview in one evening.

If you require any assistance with the cover letter, please contact any of the officers or CIs.

Important note: If you were mugged out at Annual Review Parade but have since decided to continue with your cadet career, you may return and compete for these promotions and appointments, but you will NOT be mugged out a second time.

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!

Good luck!!
