    Considering all three right now. Nothing else is working. Currently a senior in college but can't finish because shit is too expensive in Atlanta and I'm 28k in loans. Current GPA is 3.7. current major is Management Information Systems. Job experience heavy in data entry, admin and operations support, as well as business development. Does anyone has advice that would be the best choice? I would like to make a decision by August.

    Thanks IC

    Air force reserve, or navy reserve. @silverfoxx
    Never join anything army or marine related unless you are trying to go to the middle east.

    I am in the navy reserve and I have been to Kuwait, Germany, Hawaii, Florida, California, the whole northeast, and other parts of Georgia on the Navy dime.

    I could have went to other places but I have a family.

    Answer this for me.
    What are your short term and long term goals for your career?

    I'ma be completely honest with you my new Orleans fam, I'm open minded. I've made alot of goals in my life, almost none of them has gone how I wanted them to go. As far as MIS, shit is strictly for financial gain, traveling, and helping people. My passion involves in none of this shit, so I'm practically open minded to working in a position where I'm making a difference, and getting paid comfortable for it. I ain't no macho ass American, I'm strictly in because life is a game of finesse. I wanna get in, and get out and have a more competitive resume and work opportunities

    So If you score high enough on the ASVAB you can get a job in Intelligence. Most if not all the people I know that is in that field have job making 70-90, 000 a year after doing 6 good years.

    I currently pushing to my sailors to this route. The ARMY, Air Force and Navy all have this type of jobs but the Air Force and Navy have the better track record of having cushy jobs.

    The Air Force is the hardest to get in but the best afterwards. They take care of their people. PERIOD!
    As I stated earlier, I have traveled the world with the Navy.

    Let me know if you are serious and I will get you some info to make a decision. It is alot to consider.

    Really appreciate it.

    I understand that but the military just shouldn't be an option. Thats just my opinion.

    Aite , so what's a better option? You see where I'm at in my op post. If that shit is not working for me, then what's next? Keep in mind I do not want to do military at all. From my music, to school, to job security I refuse to not be shit.

    Start your own shit with whatever skills you have in any area. Apply for damn near anything and while working that job work on getting the position/job you want.

    Just because a person doesn't have a job doesn't mean they ain't shit. The ain't shit part comes in when the person stops trying.

    U need money to start his shit. We black w hite folk with family money can just strat they own shit. I'd say join any of those reserves with a 7 year plan. Join rotc. Get that rank all the college stuff paid for so he ain't got no debt. Get what ever degree or security clearance and dip when it's time to reenlist... or just do that 20 years and dip. It's just the reserves... dem benefits for his fam are worth it.

    Alot of avaible slots for cyberwarfare is opening up in Army. If you want to get your master deff suggest you do ROTC. The only downside is that you would be coming in late and you have to compete for that position.

    My major is economics with a minor in accounting current GPA of 3.6. I can tell you right now I have literally not spent a single dime of my own personal money on tuition, books, or school supplies in general. Then all of the additional benefits on top from medical to mortgages and financing. It's worth it and tell every nigga who ask me as a black man I have never worked for a business that has treated me with respect and actual concern as the army.

    Try Comcast, we big in ATL. Free cable/internet/phone. Great benefits. They give you a truck, to drive to work and back home. 401k matched 100% up to 6%. Been there 12 years, since I was 20. Started off at $11/hr, pulled over $90k last year. They got service tech positions open in Marietta, Flintstone, Roswell, they sales shit be popping too.

    When i was working fo DishNetwork i would run into Comcast cats all the time. Them mafuckas was always mad they had to do about 6 houses a day to get any real money. Meanwhile at Dishnetwork you can do 2 or 3 houses and you good lol. A few liked the job alot hated the job.

    There is a high ass turnover rate in cable/internet industry cuz those jobs aint fun. But if you good at doing that job, making > $70,000 is easy and you dont need prior experience cuz they teach you how to do the shit.

    But i hated that fucking job dealing with dumb ass people crying about cable. I came close to knocking the fuck out of a couple of home owners. That cable/internet work aint fo everyone though.
