So does a military job sound appealing, but you?d really like to go to college too? You no longer have to make the choice between college and the military ? you can do both without any problems at all.
The way the new programs are constructed, you can have many educational opportunities before you enter military service, while you?re serving, and after your commitment is complete. The more education you have, the more opportunities you have, both in a military job and in any other career you might decide upon after your military service.
Keep in mind that there are a variety of tuition assistance programs available to members of the military, as well as the GI Bill for tuition assistance, usually after you?ve left the military.
A military job can help you as a college student, since the focus, discipline and drive necessary to succeed in the military is the same as that needed for success in college. Following directions, working with dedication, and finishing the task at hand before taking a break ? all these qualities which are earned at an Army job or Navy job transfer easily to college skills.
Look into the educational advantages of the military, and see how you can be a student and a solider at the same time.
