Hi SomeCodingNobody,

I agree with you 100%. Finding something else to do in the interim would be very wise as you are not guaranteed a job. As a conservative approach, I would highly suggest that you assume that the CAF will not be selecting you and that you continue to live your life as though you never even applied. If you are currently unemployed, it would be best to start looking for work.

Personally, I was on the competition list for over 7-8 months before I got selected. The process is long while frustration often kicks in when you know that selection dates pass by without being selected. Best of luck on your application!

SomeCodingNobody and Wnhan,

I really wish selection dates were more public so I'd have some idea, but I can understand it doesn't really help to know nor manage expectations.

These forums are fortunate to have past recruiters and a current one, willing to volunteer and accurately answer applicant's questions.

Above in reply # 1826, Buck_HRA explained how and why selection dates are used by the CAF. They are a tool for the CAF, not for applicants.

7-8 months eh?  I've been on for about 5 months so far. I don't mind waiting. I was just curious as to what trade you were waiting for in that time on the list?
Thanks!

Hi Buck,

When you have a moment, could you please let me know if and/or how many positions remain for the trade of Construction Engineering Officer under the DEO entry plan and when the next projected selection date would possibly take place?

Thanks for your efforts,
wnhan

I believe Volidyr clarified his answer by editing in his trade after raptero asked the question.

Hello,

Does anyone know when the selection dates are for combat trade. Combat engineer, crewman and infantry etc and how many positions are left.

Thanks!

Q2: When are selections done?

NCM Entry Plans
       Unskilled/Semi-skilled/Skilled - There is no application deadline.  Selections happen twice a month minimum, sometimes weekly.

Please note that the above are "general" guidelines and at any point a projected/schedule selection can be pushed/moved for a variety of reasons.

As always the most accurate and up to date information on Selection Dates is your respective CFRC.

Knowing the exact number of remaining positions does not help very much. Example: If there are 10 positions but 300 applications,  knowing there are 10 positions is hardly useful information.

Hello,
Just another applicant here. I wouldnt’t worry too much about selection dates just yet as you still have a long way to go before you are competition listed. Focus on your Interview and other aspects of the application. This process requires a lot of patience as we all have been waiting for years in some cases. Don’t be discouraged though, as I said just focus on the upcoming interview whenever it is scheduled.
Thanks

Hi Jewlz,

Welcome to the forum, most questions (like selections) have been asked and answered on here; prior to asking questions we ask that you spend some time looking at the posts (and FAQ's that we post).  In your case, your selection question was answered two above your post.
