Responsibility & Service
Always remember, the Officer Rank is not one to be taken lightly, or one to be under-appreciated by non-Officers. They often spend hours of their own time when not in-game, organising behind the scenes, running public squads for recruitment or purely for the benefit of public players amongst other activities, depending on their preference / role. Also bear this in mind when putting yourself forward for voting nomination for the role of Officer. It is not a shiny title to pin on your chest, it is a very serious, very intense 6 months of Service during which you are expected to leave Zeta in a better condition than when you started your term.
For these reasons, you will also likely finish your Officer service term as a better player and will have learned a few things about yourself on a personal level, with more experience of leadership skills in general that apply to real life situations – dealing with different personalities constructively, brain-storming, prioritising, organising, delegating, understanding the concept of “there is no ‘right’ idea”, and deciding when to make tough decisions quickly under pressure – and when it’s best to defer decisions until you have more information. It will also test your endurance, determination, and will to succeed, to maintain & grow our Outfit, even when everything seems like it’s falling apart.
In short, it is tough, but also highly rewarding.
