oh wow! congrats!! i just did the JOES day last week now gotta do wat u did...how was it? wat should i expect..i know u should do abit of research and that. also how was the medical assesment ? nearly 50,000!!?? gees which branch was that for....again well done!gonnafailhsc said:Looking good, i passed the medical and psycological test, gotta do fitness. Anyone else 100% for the gap year? a year of training and my recruitment officer said the pay is nearly $50 000, no commitments other then 12 months and would really kick ass in a CV i rekon lol. Anyone do the fitness part of it yet? should be piss easy
The answer to both questoins is "Training, training, training".saraaah said:oh k. wats in the 1st to 4th week wen i wont be able to talk to him?
and wat do they do on weekends?
gonnafailhsc said:Just to clear things up, you do pay a contribution for accommodation. Its for rifleman, thing $48000 - accommodation. For the interview know what your role will involve, how long you are committing for, how long is initial training, which countries are our troops listed in, what equipment you will use, how much will you be payed, whats military law about, where will you be posted to.
I did the test at Parramatta, and the base isn't too far from Sydney, Kapooka about 10kms from Wagga Wagga. I initially wanted to join the police force, but id hate to go to uni at the moment. The skills you pick up im sure will help later on in life, it's 100% 12month ONLY.
Their is a risk of war only if fucking NZ decides they've had enough of our sheep jokes and attacks lol or shit like that. Yeah initial training is going to be tough, but your not joining to do fuck all.
Anyways, sorry for rambling on i think it shouldn't be too bad, sick of sittin on my arse for so long time for some real work. I leave on the 15th of January, so as soon as i finish exams, gotta train my ass off!
Anyone got questions on the matter or unsure whether or not to join, everyone who did it says its tough but they loved it and if you're gonna join, i'm not sure if theres any more positions left.
Mad shit, people are actually going.. I got my YOU session on friday, i hope i dont fail the fitness test and now i gotta quit smoking...elena24 said:hey peeps! just did the assesment day...and boy wat that quick
got there like 8am and by 10am they were telling me about my enlistment. so yeh i got in! yay! anyways who else here has had a repsonse...i leave in feb btw
Are you going for rifleman??? do you know if the training is only in kapuka? and what should i do?!!??!?!?! soldier or rilfeman? im a gun freak tho.. lol (besides the camping places and stuff, but majority) BTW CONGRATS!!! I HOPE I GET IN!!! lolgonnafailhsc said:I'm not sure of it's too late to apply, you should try though.
Fitness Test is on December 17th, I've quit smoking and going on a fitness program. I don't want to get in by achieving the minimal standards, i want to leave an impression lol.
Good luck to everyone!! I applied as Plan B just in case i don't make it to Uni, but research shows "Gap Year" enables students to focus on their studies and excel upon returning. And which employer wouldn't be impressed with military training?
Lol take care everyone, good luck with HSC and remember to follow your heart, not your wallet.
