Default More NCC & NCR rating info stuff...

Navy Counselor (NC)
NCC = Career
NCR = Recruiter

Navy Counselors offer vocational guidance to Navy personnel — individually and in groups — aboard ships and at shore facilities. They assess the interests, aptitudes, abilities and personalities of individuals and assist them in reaching their full potential. They are responsible directly to the command triumvirate (CO, XO, CMC) and report on many items such as retention, attrition, advancement, testing and various other facets of the career development program. Additionally, it is their keen eye and attention to detail that ensure personnel throughout the command are updated on current Navy policies in regards to career management, off duty education and administrative procedures, among various other responsibilities.

The Navy Counselor (NC) rating is not open to the incoming recruit. This rating requires a thorough knowledge of the Navy organization, including personnel and administrative procedures and policies. Because the NC rating accepts only petty officers first and second class, it is not open to first-term enlistees. A Navy person who intends to apply for this rating must have experienced the total environment of the Navy. The individual's background must clearly indicate familiarity with shipboard life; first hand knowledge of varied aspects of Navy life and duties gained through participation in a wide range of activities and assignment; and a high level of leadership as well as comprehension of diverse assigned duties. Navy counselors offer career guidance to Navy people aboard ships and at shore facilities, and to civilians who are considering enlistment in the Navy. They assist commands in organizing and implementing an aggressive enlisted career information program; evaluates enlisted career information program within own command and/or subordinate commands as applicable; supervises and coordinates interviewing and counseling efforts; counsels individuals and gives presentations to civic groups, naval personnel and their family members on the advantages of career opportunities and professional development in the Navy; establishes and maintains liaison with local media; serves as Transition Assistance Program Managers; provide counseling on veteran benefits and relocation programs.
