Very few people graduate from high school knowing what they want for a lifelong career. The same is true for community college graduates. There are simply too many careers to choose from. The world’s current economic crisis compounds the problem. Even if you choose a career that you will enjoy, there is no way to know if there will be any job openings in the future. That is, unless, you choose a career with the U.S. Army.
As established companies shut their doors and experienced employees are laid off, the Army is offering paid training, free housing, full medical and dental benefits and 30 days paid vacation each year. They will also help you to discover the best career path you.
The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery
The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) is an assessment tool used by the Army to identify the best career path for you, taking into account your interests, abilities and aptitudes. Once your ideal career is identified, the Army will then pay for all of your training.
You will receive a paycheck and benefits as you go to various schools around the world to build your professional skills. You will also develop strength of character, a sense of community that spans the globe, and have the opportunity to apply your new skills in a wide range of circumstances.
Love Your Job
There is no sense going to job every day that you dislike. There are simply too many careers to choose from for that. Your job should be something that challenges you, that piques your interest and that allows for you to grow and achieve higher levels of accomplishment. The U.S. Army is ready, willing and able to help you make your dreams come true.
