@seanMM,

Hey man. What sub field of intel are you hoping to specialize? Do you know where billets are? Likelihood of getting training? How the negotiation process works? I figure you have some good gouge. Would love to hear from ya.

PTMO Selectees: Please feel free to PM me regarding the process from selection, to assignment, to accession, reporting, and DCO school. I was a prior ARNG O3 to O2 PTMO selectee for the SEP 2018 board. The PTMO path is not as straightforward as the DCA, DCE, DCIO career path.

I'm not on the Intel list. I am on the DCE list and hopefully I can get into cyber, project management, or cloud infrastructure. A bonus one would be getting into project management at the Coast Guards Research and Development unit. One of my cutter buddies made it through DCE and got R&D for his first unit as an ENS. I don't believe there is much of a negotiation processes when picking your first unit. The AO presents to all the selectees the choices you can pick from and you just list them all in order of priority and email it back. I believe they look at your choices compared to needs of the service along with your resume and wants that you may have listed in your memo. Again, I’m not going Intel so I have no idea how that world is but I am sure the processes is similar.

Does anyone have any further information on the commissioning date(s)? I’m forward deployed so I’m trying to find out sooner than later so I can start planning when to come back stateside.

The only thing I got was the letter of intent. I sent it back the same day I got it from my recruiter.

Regarding timelines and job selection.
During the accession process you will each work with CGRC on ensuring that they have all of the paperwork necessary to process your hire. It will be important that you are timely in your communications with them, especially on the actual commissioning date.
After the letter of intent, I think it was nearly 2 months until the next contact from CGRC. Be patient. It was challenging for those of us transitioning directly from Active Duty of another service.

I was a SEP2018 DCO selectee for PTMO. We had approximately 9 total DCSS & PTMO selectees and all were slated Response Ashore except 1, who was Prevention.
I had little to no contact with the detailer. Keep in mind that the detailer for each career field is working with hundreds of active duty officers. It is possible that you will get a potential list of available billets in February. We received 3 revised lists between January - April 2019. Ultimately it was very near the commissioning date before we knew where we were going. That said, last year's assignment season was challenging and delayed due to the shutdown.

Any DCSS or PTMO that have specific questions are welcome to PM me.

The C4IT (DCE) AO has recently posted a note on the USCG Portal page saying that O-3 and below aren't expected until March 15th. I assume we are lumped in with that. I am not sure if that means we can expect orders by then or receive choices. I know we are considered Mid-year and are looked at once they finish the O-5 billets; which I think they are wrapping up now. I wouldn't start holding your breath until after the holidays. I suspect we will receive further correspondence by Feb. Not sure if you have USCG Portal access or not but the OPM-2 page posts updates there. I think we are only half way through the "long wait." Hang in there.

Oh and DA is going down very soon for end of the year documents to be posted for current USCG members. This is the system that the AO's use to send orders. With it being down I can see that holding up the last few O-5 orders. Definitely don't expect any form of correspondence until after the New Year.

I'm in Guam so I am going to do my ceremony at the Marine memorial at Asan beach where the invasion was. Than later that evening I'm going to treat my department out for dinner at a local BBQ restaurant. I would choose a place that is significant to you and make it memorable. That of course is up to you. I know people who just did it at their unit or the recruiters office. Having a reception after is nice to make it memorable but its not necessary. One of my friends did theirs at a park and hosted a bbq right after. I would keep it simple. I take it your looking for ideas?

Thanks for the input Sean. I think you have some great ideas and I’ll likely follow suit. I want to stay away from anything formal. Thanks again

I have been following this thread since I started to apply for DCE, So I thank everyone who commented, the bits and piece of info I have picked up since its inception has been helpful. It's nice knowing everyone is in the same boat as me.

I was selected Primary for DCE, received the welcome letter and will commission on 27APR with school 28MAY to 02JUL like the rest of you guys. Excited about that, this has been quite the journey for me.

I was told that after commissioning, we will head to our first unit for approximately a month, then get TDY orders to New London, CT. Is this the same understanding everyone else has?

I am currently a practicing civil engineer for a private firm and notified my employers of my plans this past Friday. Told them straight up, they were receptive of the news but obviously stressed out to lose me. I gave them about 50 days of advance notice and told them I would help them find someone to fill my position. I am going to take about a month off to get my affairs in order prior to commissioning and hang out with the wife and kid before the long time away from them.

Any info is appreciated, I might need to adjust my last day depending on the info you guys provide me. Thanks in advance and see you at the school.
