    Advertisements
    Anyone know where or how I can find how that translates to military ranks?

    TIA!

    We have PHS officers in my agency. My partner is a captain (O6) and in our agency that translates into a GS-14 equivalent. Not sure if that helps or not.

    it doesn't really translate, per se. you can be an e-7, then get hired in at a low YA (GS) rank, kiwm?

    j was an e5 when he was in... then did some civi job for a year, got a contractor position with the DOD, then got "promoted" to a DOD job as a gs12, with people under him in preparation for gs13.

    conversely, we know someone who got out at an e-6 and ended up lower on the payscale than j.

    not sure how it actually works. i'm going to go look at that link

    Yeah it looks like they have three quadrants for it, and they "loosely" translate. I also read on some of the DOD listings that you can be hired for jobs higher than your rank, just depending on skill set, training, education etc. The Navy doesn't take his degree into account for an E-6 like it would an officer, so it would be interesting to see how his skills/education/experiences translates into an electronics technician/electrical engineering DOD job.

    Ryan is debating doing that as well.. he is worried a degree in the rate he already is (meaning an Engineering Technology degree when he is a Fire Controlman) might be a bit redundant considering he will have 10 years of experience, so we are thinking Business Management might make him more well-rounded.

    Where is Jason going to school at?

    Bex is right...My dh is a WG and he is a higher WG rate than a lot of the guys who retired from the military. There is a lot that goes into it.
    Are you scrappy enough for me
