Career Management Branch (PSC-OPM-4)
OPM-4 Mission Statement
To provide dedicated career management counseling to officers of all grades; with special emphasis on individual competitiveness, future career decisions, and officer career management analysis while serving as a resource in responding to other staff actions concerning officer career management.
Also, upon request, to counsel officers concerning competitiveness and failure of selection for Post-Graduate and promotion for grades CWO2 thru O-6.
OPM-4 targets junior officers (O3 & below) since their careers are typically less defined than more senior officers. Consequently, they tend to have more questions about how different assignment scenarios could impact future career aspirations. We also target officers that are in-zone for promotion to help ensure that they have a complete record going before the promotion board. Nonetheless, any officer who desires to discuss aspects of their career will be given ample opportunity and have the ability to benefit from OPM-4 services.
To schedule an appointment send an email to ARL-PF-CGPSC-OPM-4.
Record of Professional Development (CG-4082)
This optional form is an important and often overlooked component of an officer's record. At a minimum it is recommended that all officers submit an updated CG-4082 prior to a selection panel or promotion board. Each form that you submit becomes a part of your record and is not replaced by previous submissions, so there is no need to repeat information on subsequent forms.
It is strongly recommended that officers document all significant education, training and qualifications on a CG-4082 that is not captured on the member's Employee Summary Sheet in CGBI.The completed form should be submitted to the PSC Records Branch (MR) via the member's Servicing Personnel Office (SPO).
