    Looking for a new road to travel

    I am sorry, I didn't realize this was in caps till after the fact. . .Please bear with me.

    A LITTLE BIT ABOUT MYSELF. I'M ALMOST 25 YEARS OLD, I'M UNMARRIED, AND I'M CURRENTLY IN THE NAVY. SO FAR IN MY LIFE I HAVE SPENT A COUPLE YEARS IN COLLEGE WORKING TOWARDS A FINANCE DEGREE AND I HAVE DONE SEVERAL DIFFERNT JOBS IN THE NAVY. COLLEGE DIDN'T GO VERY WELL MY FIRST TIME AROUND. I WAS UNMOTIVATED AND JUST PLAIN DIDN'T CARE. SO FAR IN THE NAVY I HAVE RAN THE AIRCRAFT ELEVATORS FROM THE HANGERBAY TO THE FLIGHT DECK, DONE SOME ON THE JOB TRAINING WITH THE AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS, SOME MORE OJT WITH THE ITS, AND EVENTUALLY I SETTLED WHERE I AM NOW. CURRENTLY I AM AN AVIATION ELECTRONICS TECHNICIAN. I ENJOY MY JOB, BUT I HATE THE MILITARY. ALSO, I'M NOT SURE IF I WOULD LIKE TO DO THIS FOR THE REST OF MY CAREER ANYWAYS. I HAVE 1 YEAR LEFT IN MY ENLISTMENT AND I AM LOOKING FOR A NEW DIRECTION IN MY LIFE. I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE ANY INSIGHT INTO WHAT I MIGHT ENJOY DOING. MY TOP 10 QUALITIES I AM LOOKING FOR ARE:
    1. AIR CONDITIONING
    2. INVOLVES COMPUTERS/INTERNET
    3. TRAVEL IS A PLUS
    4. GOOD PAY
    5. BEING ABLE TO WORK FROM HOME WOULD BE GREAT
    6. DOES NOT INCLUDE THE MAN TRYING TO BRING WHITEY DOWN IE:
    A. NOT HAVING A PRICK FOR A BOSS
    B. NOT HAVING TO ANSWER TO SOMEONE FOR EVERY MINUTE DETAIL OF EVERYTHING
    7. SUBSTANCIAL AMOUNT OF FREEDOM
    A. NOT HAVING TO CHECK OUT WITH SOMEONE EVERYTIME YOU LEAVE YOUR AREA
    B. NOT BEING CONFINED TO A SMALL AREA FOR THE ENTIRE DAY
    8. DECENT TO GOOD JOB SECURITY
    9. DOES NOT INVOLVE CLEANING
    10. CAN HAVE FUN AT WORK

    Wow. Time to bring out the image macros.






    Just to clarify, this subforum is for "Advice on urban planning careers, job hunting and workplace issues." It's not a general career advice discussion area. It's intended for discussion of urban planning career issues, not as a general career counseling forum. I think you might have better luck posting your question on a more general message board, and not one dealing mainly with urban planning.
