Hi, i went down to the careers office yesterday with a mate of mine who was going with the intention of joining the regular army, and i agreed to keep him company and pop down to ask them some questions myself. I'd seen a dog handler vacancy on the amry jobs website so i asked him about it, and he said absolutely no chance if you've had no experience working with animals. Anyway, at the time i were taken in by it all after he told me the amount of other jobs you can do etc. and ended up giving my details, and he gave me a date for a reception brief in a couple of weeks. After coming home and telling my misses etc and been researching how much time you get to go home, i think in my circumstance joining the T.A's for the experience and see how much i do or dont enjoy it would have been better. If i phone them up now and let them know i wont be attending the reception brief, will they hold it against me joining the TA's, thinking ill be a let down. Thanks.
