Field Radio Operator (Former Employee) – Camp Pendleton, CA – April 24, 2017
The time I spent in the Marine Corps was very educational. Because I entered at a young age, I was able to learn early on in my professional life the importance of punctuality, self discipline, seeking initiative, and taking responsibility in a work environment full of moving parts. Which in turn was one of the hardest parts of the job, I had to quickly learn to adapt to stay atop of the tasks and assignment. I only hope that my next place of employment is as challenging and educational.
