I'm super Jelly because my command still has yet to submit my sep package that I gave to them last week. Turns out the admin chief I gave it to went on leave and didn't pass it on. It seems no one is in a rush to find it either.

VrodViddy, at what point and how far out did you begin applying for jobs? Also, how did you negotiate the timeline with your employer?

If you have a thread link to post (or website or something) and it is easier, that would help too.

Thanks poppa.

I been looking for jobs for past two years really, but I wouldn't bother trying to apply for a job intill you get your ratings. Thats when I applied, and interviewed 4 weeks later. The negotiating start time will vary strictly on the employer. I just got lucky as it was a brand new position they never held before and weren't in extreme rush to fill. My experience in lookin for work though, most employers looking to fill a position in 2 weeks or less. This isn't to say that you shouldn't give it a try. You might get lucky like I did.
