Countdown to your new Navy job: a Sailor's detailing timeline.

The Career Management System/Interactive Detailing (CM S/ID) is a Navy career tool enlisted Sailors use to plan and develop their careers. CMS/ID provides Sailors the ability to explore future job possibilities and apply for Navy billets.

As you count down the months to your planned rotation date (PRD), several very important dates require your action. These actions ensure that your detailer and career counselor have the most accurate and current data about your professional achievements and qualifications, as well as personnel information that may determine whether you obtain your desired job.
