Ok, I've basically pissed away the last three years of my life at uni studying some wishy washy subject being taught by some over paid, constantly whinging, lecturers at some hell-hole of a uni on the south coast. Where has it got me? Well apart from a high maintanence missus of 2 years, pretty much sod-all. Fuggin nowhere - so i think to myself, what job can i get? ...... Dad served 22 years in the sigs, I was born up in Catterick, remember hearing stories of Blandford (dad probably fathered half the town for all i know), went with him to Saudi and Germany - all seemed fun! Now 22 in final year at uni with pretty high prospects of maybe a 3rd class degree because frankly i couldn't give two hoots about whether or not neo-classical trade theories are superior to Keynsian style theorys (see, i don't even know what that means.) Army? Sounds like a plan. I did a little 'research' into the kinds of things you can do and as much fun as it would be to sit at home and become a grade A turd whilst watching Porridge, Blackadder and Monty Python DVD's, i figured i better pull the proverbial finger out. So here's my plea: I'm 22 - fancy learning a trade and actually learning something practical as opposed to the utter rubbish i've 'learnt' so far. Do many people of my 'advanced' age join up? It's probably just my way of looking, but i see 17-18yr olds and think that by the age of 22 most people actually have a clue what they are doing. I'm going to see one of these recruitment officers next week, but i figured coming to a board like this would give me a no-bullshit answer.....to what is a pretty vague question really What can i expect at a) basic b) phase two and c) blandford itself. (the last time i saw it i was 18 months old.) Go on, do your worst!
