Default YNS or YNT?

Hey guys, so I am sitting here researching more into the rate I selected and was wondering how I could transition to a YNS (stenographer) or YNT (typist)? Are these still active rates? I originally thought the YNS was a Seaman, but apparently not...I'm really interested in doing YNT or YNS because I type well over 87+WPM...Is this something that is possible?

Those two are the abbreviations for the service ratings of YN, or a specialized subset of the YN rate. I am also pretty sure that both of those subsets no longer exist. They are redundant in the modern office, and the YN community page doesn't have those service ratings listed.

YN-S is now usually used to refer to Submarine Yeoman, though technically that YN (ss).

The career path for YN can go to Legalman (LN) or Navy Counselor (NC)

I am in the same boat as you, I can type about as fast as I can talk, and I am sure I will put those skills to great use as a Yeoman! YN is life.

Thanks for the information, I am looking at the LN career path myself as it has a lot of opportunity outside of the Navy as well.

Absolutely!!

Especially if you can stand patent law. It is apparently super boring, but the very strict rules and procedures translate over very well from navy regulations.

I used to work at a business club in Atlanta Georgia, and even there I had members offering to pay for my law degree via night school to come and work for them because of my clear headed approach to information and analytical thinking.

Another piece of advice that I learned when working on my independent study in college, which was later published. This is the real world, not school. After A-school, make a cheat sheet for yourself for things that you have trouble remembering. In the interest of PO tests you do want to know your content down pat, but in the interest of being the best at your job...

Let me put it this way, if a PhD in Astrophysics can keep a break down of troublesome integrals and other formulae on their office while they are grading tests, you too can keep a sheet with helpful tips.
