Earlier this month, one of the main thoughts on the minds of members of the Corps was promotions for jobs next year. The process isn’t too difficult - you fill out an application with your extracurriculars and such (essentially a very quick resume to determine how you stack against other cadets), and then you have a board. The board is definitely the most stressful part of the process. You report in, have an interview with a commandant and upperclassmen, and then you report out. Questions can range from what you would do in scenarios that you may face in the position you are going for to testing your knowledge on the rules and regulations. The upperclassman on your board has the opportunity to ask questions and inputs what they think about the cadet. Most of the cadets I asked agreed that it went better than they origionally expected. The key is to stay calm and cool so your nerves don't cloud your focus. The questions are answerable if you have a clear mind and your confidence to help you.
