Improving your Career

Your enlisted career encompasses many areas that you should be aware of and manage. To get the most of your Navy career you should keep your military records up to date such as ensuring all NECs are properly entered in your military records since this could expand your areas of assignments and give you other opportunities. You should also maintain qualifications for your rate and rank such as the enlisted warfare specialist qualification.

Getting behind in qualifications will negatively impact your career. Don't forget to keep current with updated Bureau of Naval Personnel (BUPERS) which included BUPERS-32, the Enlisted Military Community Management organization. The Enlisted Community Management Branch is responsible for "cradle-to-grave" management of all rates - including yours!

If you have time, use your tuition assistance to further your education. Not only does it look good in your records, that is something you can use when you get out of the military. Also, if you have not taken a detailed look at your Navy evaluations, you should seriously consider setting a time to do that – you could be rewarded with a better set of evals simply by paying attention to detail by setting up some time for yourself!

Maintain Your Readiness

You should strive to maintain your physical readiness and maintain an above average PRT score. This is the same for your uniform, keep it in tip-top shape and stand out from the crowd. Start your detailing process early if you are changing your command. This will show your gaining command that you are mature and will be an asset. Look into special assignments that could boost your enlisted career such as the Blue Angels.
