Pros: Paid training and continual professional development
Cons: Challenging work/life balance
The Air Force provided a 19 year old kid an opportunity to learn a valuable skill as an electronics technician. All training was provided and college accredited. Twenty-four years later, I have had the opportunity to pay it forward by investing my time and experience into the lives and development of numerous other including subordinates, co-workers, students, supervisors, and friends.
