Career Waypoints Designed to Further U.S. Navy Sailors’ Careers


HELLO, I’M MC1 JULIA CASPER, AND I’M HERE
TO SPEAK WITH FLEET MASTER CHIEF APRIL BELDO ABOUT CAREER WAYPOINTS, BETTER KNOWN AS C-WAY. MASTER CHIEF, THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME
TO SPEAK WITH ME TODAY. THANKS MC1 FOR HAVING ME. APPRECIATE IT. COULD YOU PLEASE TELL ME WHY IT’S IMPORTANT
FOR SAILORS TO USE C-WAY? C-WAY IS AN INITIATIVE, AND A PROGRAM THAT
WE HAVE ONLINE THAT OUR NCCS (NAVY CAREER COUNSELORS) USE TO HELP OUR SAILORS GO THROUGH
THEIR CAREERS. WHETHER THEY ARE ABLE TO REENLIST IN THEIR
RATING, OR WHETHER THEY HAVE TO CONVERT TO DIFFERENT RATINGS, IT ALLOWS US TO MAKE SURE
THAT THE HEALTH OF OUR COMMUNITIES STAYS STABILIZED AND PROVIDES OPPORTUNITIES FOR ADVANCEMENT,
SO IT IS AN IMPORTANT PROGRAM THAT WE HAVE. HOW IS C-WAY DESIGNED TO HELP SAILORS? WHAT C-WAY DOES FOR THE SAILOR, AND THE NAVY,
IS IT ALLOWS US TO CONTINUE WATCHING THE HEALTH OF EACH RATING, THE HEALTH OF THE COMMUNITY,
AND THEN IT PROVIDES THE SAILOR AN OPPORTUNITY TO LOOK AT JOBS THAT MIGHT POSSIBLY BE AVAILABLE
TO THEM IF THEY FIND THEMSELVES IN A SITUATION WHERE THEY HAVE TO CONVERT TO ANOTHER RATE. SO, IT SHOWS THEM ALL THE JOBS THAT ARE OPENED,
THE HEALTH OF THE COMMUNITY OF THAT PARTICULAR RATE, AND THEN THE SCORE THAT THEY HAVE TO
HAVE TO SEE IF THEY ARE QUALIFIED FOR THAT NEW RATE. WHAT IS YOUR RECOMMENDATION FOR SAILORS WHO
ARE APPLYING FOR REENLISTMENT WITHIN C-WAY? WELL, THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECT OF THAT IS
FOR THEM TO SIT DOWN WITH THEIR LPO, THEIR CHIEF AND THEIR CAREER COUNSELOR, AND PUT
THAT APPLICATION IN AT THE 15-MONTH MARK. THEN ANYTIME ANY INFORMATION NEEDS TO BE UPDATED
WITHIN THEIR CAREER, FOR INSTANCE, THEY MIGHT HAVE GOT THEIR WARFARE PIN; NEW EVALUATIONS
MIGHT HAVE CAME OUT; MAYBE THEY JUST COMPLETED THEIR PHYSICAL FITNESS TEST; ALL THAT INFORMATION
NEEDS TO BE UPDATED AS YOU GET IT. WE WANT TO MAKE SURE OUR SAILORS HAVE THE
MOST UP-TO-DATE INFORMATION IN C-WAY, SO WHEN THEY COME UP ON THEIR LOOKS, WE KNOW THEY
ARE STACKING UP WELL AGAINST THEIR SHIPMATES. THANK YOU. FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT C-WAY, CHECK OUR
STORY ON NAVY.MIL. FOR THE CHIEF OF NAVAL PERSONNEL, I’M MC1
JULIA CASPER.
