Assignment Policy on Advancement Article 1.C.3 – Military Assignments & Authorized Absences, M The Coast Guard advances to vacancies Service Need may require transfer prior to tour completion Members shall submit an e-Resume within 30 days of his or her name appearing above the cutoff on the advancement eligibility list
Creating a Realistic e-Resume CONSIDER Professional growth opportunities – Sea duty – Career diversity (e.g. geographic region, unit/platform/job type) – Qualifications needed for professional development Your assignment priority Your Evaluations Your Past Assignments The sea/shore ratio for your rating
Creating a Realistic e-Resume Comments Section I have reviewed the Command Checklist for Overseas Screening, the Financial Assessment Checklist and the Dependent Overseas Screening in Article 1.H. of COMDTINST M1000.8, and have verified that I meet the criteria for overseas assignment. My number one desire is to be stationed in Alaska, so the first five billets are based on geographical preference. My second desire is to get an ATON assignment. So my next grouping of billets is by job type. I have ATON cutters listed first for career building and advancement requirements and would prefer going back afloat. I listed ATON ashore and other shore units last. Billet Picks Alaska Billets Buoy Tenders ANTS 24 – 30 Stations 31 – 60 Sectors, Stations, Large Cutters
