I am an electronics technician in the US Navy submarine force. I operate and maintain the suite of electronic sensors and periscope equipment that are the eyes and ears of the boat- it's hard work at times, but very rewarding. Not only are you paid to go to highly technical schools which will be beneficial to a career outside the Navy, but you also get ever-increasing responsibility and leadership positions - again, very valuable on the civilian side of things.
No experience required to start.
Technical training and leadership experience.
See the world (cliche, but true!).
Sometimes long hours.
The military owns you for at least 5 years (if you go subs).
See the world - but not home, for extended periods.
Gotta shave every day.
I'd do it all again in a heartbeat. If you're up for new experiences, and not afraid to jump out of your "comfort" zone, the military could be just the thing for you!
