I applied to the ROTP program in October 2019 for the position of Infantry Officer. I am currently competition listed. When I spoke to the recruiter, he said some selections were made. I was curious to know if anyone received and offer?
An applicant is placed in the Competition List when all the mandatory tests such as aptitude test, interview and medical examination are cleared. So selections are made from this list. If it says, ready for the Competition list, you are just a step behind in getting into the Competition list. This could be because the CAF put the names into the Competition list once every 2 or 3 weeks. So you should be in the Competition list soon.
The ROTP Selections happen throughout April to May. Some people from last year received their offer at the very end of May. I am not sure about if specific jobs get their offers first but there are people who have received their offers at a later date. From last year, I know some people who got their offer in February and some who got theirs in May.
First round of selections occurred last Friday, April 17th. Offers should be rolling in soon, I read "Selected" on the online portal so perhaps they will be tendered soon. Hopefully we receive the call in coming weeks, it would be nice to hear some good news during these times. Good luck everyone.
Yeah I gotcha, my occupation preference is Infantry then Engineer Officer, could go either way though. Depends which one I ranked higher on the list. I had to drop my third aircrew trade (AEC) because there wasn't enough time for the air-factor medical. What occupations did you choose if I may ask?
Ye sure, I chose Infantry as first, Armoured as second and Artillery as third, but I don't see "selected" on my portal. The recruiter said I was competitive and have a strong chance. I think I'll have further wait and see.
