If you were selected this year can you share your eval and LTB with me.

Hey guys. Keep your heads up. There is no magic ticket to getting selected. Trust me. I was selected this year and was never a SOY or any of that. Follow your rating ladder and take care of your Junior sailors.  Make your evals about what they do and not so much about what you do. You will get there. Trust the process.

I've started studying for the exam as well. Had some fun finding one of the references actually. The email that is listed in the bibliography at the top gets replies fairly quickly I am surprised to say. I was expecting it to take a week or more but they were super helpful. When I was talking with my chief about evals and got the advice to draft the write-up based on the board precepts. Am I missing something when I read those? They are almost exactly the same, word for word from the previous year and seem to only give generic rules about not talking about board proceedings, CMEO items, not to let a single negative event knock a person out of the running entirely, etc.

My big takeaway from all of the information on the forum this year was that evals carry a tremendous amount of weight... more so than any other single item. While I knew this already, hearing the experience of others and seeing eval bullets of those selected has opened my eyes to what my evals should look like. Fun fact - they don't look like that.

I was thinking, it would be neat if we could create a page with clickable ratings that would display eval write-ups from people selected in those rates. What's everyone's opinion on this?

To any Chiefs, Senior Chiefs, Master Chiefs, or CWOs popping their heads in here to get a glimpse of next year's anxious crop.

If you have the time, I'd like to ask for a record review and any feedback, opinions, constructive criticism, or general advise that would make for a more competitive package next year.

Thanks in advance!

Can you ask those folks to share those eval bullets as well.

I’m feeling that way too. I’m having a hard time accepting responsibility over my evals. I’ve been writing what I considered great evals for at least 7 years now but they always get chopped to pieces and I’ve never been happy with what I sign. Poor write-ups. I’m older now and more lessons learned. This was only my 2nd time up but seeing the people that did pick up, it’s gotta be my evals. I personally know for a fact, box for box I’m overall better than some of them. Only thing they have on me is more time and maybe better written evals. I can’t think of anything else. Back at it again in the morning. This week a group of 20 ranging from commanders to E4s will complete proficiency in high risk training under my direction. I don’t need the anchors right away to know I’m a great leader. The people I work with see it and tell me everyday. Just gotta play better politics on paper. 

Yeah  I don't understand the reading aspect side of the board. I know for me I've checked every box off like you, so it must be specific phrases or something that will make it stand out that they are looking for.

That sounds like something that I would be interested in.

So I’ve just checked into my new command a month ago, so pretty much boned in this upcoming eval. 5 month eval with 2 months of projection.  I keep being reminded by people that the board will see the dates and understand the lacking leadership due to short time and the linear progression to get into a leadership spot. I’m at a staff command so leadership “positions” are few and far between. Knocking out my job qual, warfare requal and some school. The board didn’t see my transfer eval so hopefully that will make up for this November eval they will also see next year. First things first let’s get past this January exam to become SBE. I’d like to be 2/2. Happy studying everyone.

Cryptic

I posted this on July 28th:

Why (S):

1. LPO of 30+ Sailors for three years with documented junior Sailor progression/accomplishments

2. Strong mission impact

3. FCPOA cabinet position and two command level collaterals 

 

Why not (N):

1. No CPO365 position

2. Only one month at sea as PO1

3. Three of last five evals are not EPs

------------------------------------------------------------

I got the "S" this year. For what it's worth. Hit me up if you have questions.
