In my experience in Job Corps, I felt like I was the only person who was more mature than anyone in my vocational trait. But, I've learned that it was best to associate myself with other in my age group than with others who are at a younger age group. I have really learned a lot about what to expect from working in the field of security and investigations, – more... and I also learned that I should be able to manage my finance more often. The most enjoyable part about Job Corps was understanding the importance of safety inspections and maintenance reports within the campus. As well as the importance of radio, key, and equipment inventory. The management was actually helpful and it did feel as if they were trying to make everyone feel welcome in their field of interests to their vocational training. My fellow security trainees in the field of security and investigations were actually helpful in cooperation with our superiors and co-workers. The hardest part of the training is memorization and maintaining the crowd-control. But, overall, I would say that vocational training in Job Corps was an incredible experience for me. And I am very greatful for choosing Job Corps. – less
