Choosing a military career can answer the question of what to do after graduation.
When some kids graduate from high school they’re uncertain about what the future holds. They might have had a plan all through high school, but the current economy or changes in their personal lives can make them question these goals. Some kids let this uncertainty completely derail them and they drift into a meaningless job, missing college or the opportunity to do something better. A military career would prevent that.
1. Worry about getting a degree and being unable to find a job has never been more relevant than in today’s poor job market. Joining the Army, Navy, Marines or Air Force will get you that education and ensure you always have a career?no lay-offs, no downsizing.
2. Get your education while working military jobs, and if you should choose to do so later you can retire from the military and take a civilian job.
3. Joining the military, just getting through basic training, gives you skills to survive anything life can throw at you later.
4. Being a veteran can open doors for you all throughout your life, as potential employers are impressed with the skills, training and dedication you acquired as a member of the military.
