Hello all! Just got back from the careers office with the aim of joining as a warfare officer and specialising in the Hydrographic, meteorological & oceanographic path (brain freeze) but i'm quite confused my vision was to join as an officer and specialise (like i just stated) as a hydro, work my way up etc... but apparently i was told you cant "choose" your career path just "hint" depending on what the RN needs at that time and they dictate your role. This really concerns me as i foolishly got hooked in from the RN website and TV ads thinking it was almost like a uni course where you could pick & choose, tbh i had hydro in my mind as i'm currently studying 4 AS/A2 levels in enviromental, geog & 2 others (insignificant to hydro) thinking this is on the same wave length, hence i'll enjoy it but who knows! I just wanted to know exactly is it like the career guys say? your a "general" warfare officer and they fill the places? or do you have more of a choice. Also if there are any hydros poking around some info on the job first hand would be awesome & really appreciated. I'm a total RN newbie so excuse the poor understanding of how the RN functions, i'm just gathering info atm to decide what i want to do... although i'm sure i want to join the RN just not sure what as :?
