  • Need A Little Career advice

    I'm thinking about lat moving(changing job specialties) soon and there is a group of jobs available that offer fast promotions and huge signing bonuses. I'm qualified for these jobs. which should I do?

    Explosives Ordinance and Disposal(EOD)-basically the military's bomb squad. there is a 48,000 dollar bonus for switching into that job but the risks are obvious. Another plus is that once I choose to get out of the military I have my pick of security jobs around the country with salaries surpassing 100K a year.

    CounterIntelligence-Basically I'm an interrogator for the military. Sounds like a fun job but will keep me in Iraq for 8 months out of every year which sucks since I'm married.

    Purchasing and Contracting Agent-I'd be the guy in charge of meeting with huge corporations about purchasing equipment for the marines. Not exactly an exciting job but another job that has big time practical use after I get out of the military

    Career Retention Specialist-Probably the most boring job I'd be considering, I'd be in charge of convincing people to stay in the marines.

    Criminal Investigator-Basically NCIS for the Marine Corps.

    You're asking people on a message board about your career, much less a career involving the military?

    I hope you're not putting much stock into your replies.

      I'm not taking too much stock. Just wondering if maybe some people here might have a little insight. I'm pretty sure what I'm going to do anyway but it never hurts to ask people.

        personally 1st or 3rd, being away from the fam is hard, plus it seems as you like what happens after your done in the military. Id go with the first, but thats just me.

          Those are the two I'm leaning towards the most for that reason. My military career won't last forever and I don't want to be one of those guys who spends 20 years in the military and has no job skills for when they get out

                  Man, I thought this said Little Caesar's advice. If that's what you really meant, go for the pepperoni and sausage. It's delicious.
