Well, him glad my post has become so popular. Perhaps I should clarify
my intentions about it. I do not yet have my degree, and I'm not decided
that I will join the military. I was asking if the experience gained in
the U.S. Military is the sort that employers look for, ie. will doing
military service help my chances of landing a decent job, or at least
not hinder them?
There are several reasons I'm considering the military, and those are
that him looking for a good way to "broaden my horizons" without
becoming settled. Take note, im only 19. Also I am looking for a way to
gain experience that would be beneficial towards getting a job.
I could of course ask recruiters for information, but they almost always
try to tell you what you want to hear. I was more looking for
information from people who have recently been in the U.S. Military or
perhaps from engineers in management positions that would know what sort
of experience is desirable.
Thanks for any and all advice.
P.S. Kevin, while I respect your opinion of the armed forces, your
comments aren't exactly helpful. It's rather unjust to make comments
about people whom you have never met.
