Could you enlighten us on would be wrong with Blue Collar Employment?Good luck finding work in anything outside of security or blue collar employment.
A lot will depend on what you do in the military whether a job would match the skills you gained while serving. Depends also on whether you enlist right out of high school or attend college and ROTC and are commissioned. If you enlisted you would have the opportunity to attend college or trade school with the GI Bill, something anyone would say is a good idea. Officers may be able to seek jobs in management or , God forbid, a Blue Collar Trade. A lot will also depend on you and how you market yourself and your work ethic. It's no secret that unemployment is higher among enlisted veterans, you need to have a plan and look at all your options before you leave the service, just don't get trapped in the thinking that there will be a job waiting for you, you need to seek them out.
Thank you! You cheered me up a lotAnything. I am a product development analyst. I have a friend who is a priest. Another guy works as a civil engineer at Populus (they build baseball stadiums and arenas). I have a friend in Congress. A guy who used to work for me is a detective on a Colorado City Police force. Another guy that worked for me is a screenwriter and producer in Los Angeles. Others work in finance and banking in and around New York City. I think you get my point is there are diverse opportunities available after your time in the service is done.
Nothing’s wrong with it. In fact it’s honorable work. All I’m saying is if he is in fact an infantryman, he may have a hard time finding an office job if he doesn’t have any related degrees or skills.Could you enlighten us on would be wrong with Blue Collar Employment?
