I graduated with a degree in geology this summer and have been considering the Army as a possible career path. I haven't had much luck getting a grad job in civy street, and the Army has been looking increasingly attractive. Not that I view it as a last resort, or any kind of "resort" for that matter, I've been considering a career in the army for a long time, and in many respects it seems very attractive after weighing up the pros and cons. I looked at the TA to get a taster for it, but apparently I'd have to go all the way to Nottingham (I live in Lancashire) to do geology. I have contacted the careers centre about this and they don't really have much information (any information for that matter). I have also looked on the Army careers website and haven't found out much (other than the army does have geologists). Does anyone here know anything about careers for geologists in the Army? For example, what does this involve (training and duties)? What is the typical day in the life of an army geologist/geotechnical engineer? Whats army life like (hard, easy etc)? Any other miscellaneous information? Thanks in advance and I hope this doesn't provoke a plethora of sarcastic remarks.
