I had a disgruntled recruiter when I joined the Army. Seriously disgruntled - I think specifically about having been made a recruiter. Anyway, I couldn't blame anything on him - he tried to talk me out of it the whole time. I pretty much recruited myself.

NETWORKING is the KEY to your Success, You are never done with military as long as you have friends serving you must NETWORK will past and present and future and on top of it resume skills are a must and don't tell military stories on your INTERVIEW and most all make you know the proper dress for the job you are interviewing for you maybe be over qualified.

When enlisting, really study your MOS or AFSC. I wanted to become a chef, so my AFSC was 62330 Apprentice Services Specialist. I was a cook. They tried to talk me out of it during BMT, but it was my dream job at the time.
After separating from the USAF, I went into the fast food industry. I never followed up on the "chef training". I ended up managing restaurants and/or training the trainers. Did it for 20 years. Cancer had me on the sidelines for about 3 years, but I was able to kick Cancer's ass. I finished my Associate of Applied Science degree, with an emphasis on Paralegal Law, from my hospital bed in 2008. Due to poor health, I was declared disabled, in 2011. Spent $25,000 on a degree I'm not able to put to use.
So, before you even enlist, seriously contemplate what your dream civilian job would be, then find the military equivalent and forge ahead.
