you should look into working for the secret service or FBI, with your double major especially in a foreign language you could probably do something uber sweet.
but seriously, I have a friend who majored in criminal justice and spanish and got approached by the FBI and applied to the secret service.[/quote]
I looked into FBI and CIA and both would be fantastic, I’m sure. I couldn’t do Secret Service simply 'cuz I’m not too keen on Mr. Komrade Obama. I know there’s more to it than the POTUS, and I know he’s the ‘commander in chief’ of the Armed Forces and all, but I just couldn’t do it. Didn’t some enlisted guy refuse to deploy due to BHO’s questionable birth certificate? I would have a problem protecting a guy who is seemingly trying quite vigilantly to ensure the destruction (or at least degradation) of some things I hold very dear. Anyway, not trying to jack my own thread.
The idea of Army appeals to me more for reasons of future interest and further education.
negative. officers do not take the ASVAB.
i HIGHLY suggest army. maybe i am biased b/c i’m army myself. but you are right, they have tons of options, the SLOTS for all of those jobs, and give out the most money.
sorry about the acronyms. what i mean is you can also pick up full time national guard jobs. meaning you wear ACU’s to work. but you work 8-4 like normal mofos, and live wherever you want to. not to mention you get full pay, benifits, medical coverage, yadda yadda yadda.
AGR = active guard reserve = full time national guard job
ADSW = active duty special work = kinda like AGR but it has a fixed end date. ADSW orders can last anywhere from a week to a year or more. while you are on orders it’s just like being active duty
any other questions feel free to ask here or PM me
what were you thinking of branching in the army?[/quote]
Again, grateful for the knowledge. I just recently started looking into this so I’m not sure of a branch. At first glance, EOD looks like a good time. Some of my friends think I’m crazy for even considering that route 'cuz I just finished school and have some hefty loans. Wouldn’t be too prudent to go get all blowed up when I owe some $$$, right?
Like I said, HolyMac, I’m a blank slate with this stuff. I’m just trying to learn as much as I can and make the best decision. I’ll def. hit you up with more questions.
And then I’m gonna go change my username to ‘CRIMSON TRACE’.
