One final piece! As we move into the AY23 transfer season, please ensure that you have updated your job title in EDMS! This will ensure that you are able to get the all CS emails that are being sent out from both Program and the AO’s. Your title can be changed by accessing the EDMS link in the Pixel Dashboard, selecting milConnect, then My Profile, log in with your CAC, select the MIL tab and update your Job Title as appropriate. It usually takes several days for the update to execute, but that should ensure that you are attached to the distribution list for all CS! Also go into Direct Access and update your phone number and email address, that way if we need to call or email you during the slating process we can reach you!
As new opportunities come available we will send out updates. Continue to reach out to Senior Chief Wright or myself if any question! We are here for you!
Thank you all for everything that you do! We look forward to having a great AY23 and talking with everyone!
