Hello, I am seeking some professional advice and I am hoping the community can help me out. I am considering volunteering for recruiting duty; however, I am curious if it will negatively impact my career progression if I were to be promoted to SFC prior to the assignment.
Promotion rates for my MOS in regards to MSG are very stiff and I have not completed a special assignment. I am currently in a nominative assignment, but I am not sure if that counts.
From my understanding for MSG you need a minimum of 24 months of leadership experience, so I believe going recruiter could be negative in placing me behind the curve of not having that PSG/leadership time. Conversely, in DA Pam 600-25 it is one of the recommended special assignments.
So in conclusion, will this move hamper or improve my career progression as a SSG(P)with future career ambitions of becoming a CSM?
