If you’re a younger person and you have absolutely no idea what you want to do in your career, maybe the military is a place you should consider. Why not? Whatever you do, don’t discount the military services.
One of the military services used to have an advertisement that said, “It’s a great place to start” and it’s true. I was in the Navy as a young man and it really was a great place to start for me. The military training has a way of pushing you to the limit. You learn a lot about yourself. The discipline I gained while in the Navy was, and still is, invaluable. In fact, I use it in business every day.
See the world? You bet! While I was in the Navy the traveling was extensive. In fact, I traveled around the world twice and was on six continents before I was twenty-three years old. Awesome! Do not discount the military services if you don’t know what you want to do in your career. Check it out!
Now, if you’re reading this and thinking to yourself, “I’m not the military type” or “I don’t want to fight” or “I don’t want to get killed” or some type of variation on that thinking. There are a lot of positions in supporting roles where you will never see any “action” or fighting. You should check out the different positions that are available to you.
The military has lawyers, doctors, dentists, nurses, pilots, truck drivers, mechanics, aircraft mechanics, computer technicians, avionics, rescue swimmers, divers, plumbers, electricians, mechanical technicians, teachers, instructors, recruiters, and the list goes on. An aircraft carrier is basically a floating city. Everything you find in a small town you will find on an aircraft carrier. Seriously.
Again, if you’re a younger person looking for something to do in your career and you have absolutely no idea what you want to do, or more importantly, what you CAN do. Check out the military services, you will be pleasantly surprised about the opportunities that are available to you. There are a ton of jobs available! I hope this helps.
Good luck to you!
