Life Was Heaven on the D97

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Best say hello I guess :wink:

    Joined in 91 and reached the dizzy heights of AB(EW) took redundancy in 96 under ‘Options for the Deranged’ (no way was I going OM).

    HMS Starling Hong Kong 92 (6 month loan)
    JARIC RAF Brampton 92 (6 month loan)
    Edinburgh 93-94
    Cardiff 95-96

    Moved back to Stoke-on-Trent bought a house nearly got married, kicked the witch out in 98. Got pissed for a few years then sold my house in 2003 and went to University.

    Did my final exam last week and officially graduate with a degree in Software Engineering on July 6th.

    Currently sitting around watching daytime TV whilst looking for a job.
  2. Greetings and well done on your degree. I hope you are on the path to great riches or at least enough dosh for a few pints.

    Greetings & welcome mate.

    Good to see you did OK at uni.
    Why not have a look at re-joining as a graduate entry Information Technology (W.E.) engineering officer? A relatively new officer trade (Assuming you're eligible)
  4. Thanks all for the welcome

    I think 35 is possibly too late to join back up lol. Though I would consider it (maybe ;) )

    I’m quite interested/involved at a personal level in Network Enabled Capabilities (see JSP 777) and Network Centric Warfare, from a software engineering point of view.

    I’ve been applying to a few graduate schemes that deal with the MOD but to be honest most of them use recruitment companies that really don’t have a clue wtf they are on about.

    To be fair these external companies are used to dealing with 22-year-old spotty Herberts straight from Uni via school so I guess it isn’t their fault.

    But seriously though I was asked in a telephone interview the other week “So did you manage to find a job between A-levels and Uni?†I left school over 18 years ago you stupid Bint!!!

    Although I think one of the best questions I had was “have you ever worked in a team if so can you tell me about it?†ha ha !!!

    Oh well, I’m sure I will find something eventually, maybe…. lol
  5. Wecome Mate , sorry to hear about the daytime TV , nightmare , good luck in your job hunting . :lol:

    You can join as a rating up to your 37th birthday. Once in, you could try AIB & if you did not make it you could put 12 months notice to leave.

    Not trying to recruit you, just keeping you in the picture. :lol:

    Anyway, good luck job hunting. 8)
