Hello, My brother and I are in the middle of trying to join the RN with our first job choice being that of an HM. Well we hit a wee bit of a snag...namely: the recruiter has just informed us that the wait list is 21 months...almost 2 years!!! Lets just say I was a little taken aback by that... I know I shouldn't base my trade on purely waiting time, but 21 months is a little bit extreme as far as I'm concerned (esp with the economy making civvy street look more and more untenable) so I've come to thinking about the other choices on my list and if anyone knew the waiting times for these: Warfare Specialist Air engineering technician Mine Warfare Specialist These are what I can think off the top of my head right now and I'm trying to fit both my brother and I in here, so maybe when I get back with him he'll have more to add to the list. I don't want to come off as desperate or wishy-washy or seem that I'll take anything thats convienent, but I'm just asking out of practicality so I can add things into the equation and make my final decision from there. Anyway, thanks and I look forward to any and all responses. cheers.
