I’m sure this question is asked a million times, I apologize for another one of “those threads”. I’m in my mid 30s and in good health, I’m a former US Marine, currently a senior software developer. The monotony of civilian life is killing me. As per my DD214, I have over 1yr 2mo time at sea (None in the past 90 days).
While in the Marine Corps, I was a Military Analyst. After I got out, I worked on ROV’s for the Navy. Then I got into software development. I don’t have any vocational/professional certifications or licenses.
So for you guys who still have salt in your veins, how would you recommend I jump into the industry? My first assumption is to try and get in a security billet since I have experience dealing pirates/terrorists. I know their weapons, tactics and the countermeasures to enforce. I’m assuming another option is jumping into an average unlicensed position, swabbin’ the deck.
All thoughts and opinions are welcome. Thanks!
