FitRep/ChiefEval Opening Comments

Assignment to the Navy's most challenging and critical billets is based on the information contained in your evaluation so it's very important that it be accurate and fully describe performance and ability. The success of the Navy's mission depends on it. To emphasize a candidate's readiness for increased responsibility, the introductory lines must describe the subject's best qualities, his integrity, loyalty, and leadership ability. This subjective description of the subject by his or her rater is very important. It's the first thing the reviewer reads and sets the tone for the whole Evaluation. Make sure it has the impact that catches the reviewer's attention. Competition for the Navy's top billets is fierce; choose your words carefully.
