    This questions may not be most appropriate for this particular forum, but does anyone know the steps one should take in order to pursue a career as a PMC?

    You basically need to do an AD stent in a combat arms role, and then you're good to go. Talking to quite a few of these guys thats all I can tell there is to it.

    Step 1: Before purchasing a life insurance policy, scrutinize the fine print for exclusions.

    This is highly dependent on the position. There is a vast difference in requirements for a security guard, driver, or helicopter pilot.

    I would imagine you would need hands on experience.

    The first step is generally to apply for and get through Special Operations training for all but a few specialists (like pilots). Step 2 is getting experience in the Special Ops community.

    Then you are all set.

    Okay, I have a feeling your comment was dirty or sarcastic (but in a good way) but I cant figure out what it is:)

    Reference to an old Holiday Inn Express TV Commercial. Realize now that I spent way to much attention to TV Commercials.

    Come on Humey, those commercials weren't that long ago.
    I thought it was part of typical parlance, like Seinfeld's "yadda yadda".

    My favorite is the surgeon.
