I hope that you guys can help me. I have been reading this forum for days now on and off looking for guidance, my situation is a little more bespoke than many so thought I would stop lurking and just ask. I am 23, female, in a full time job as an IT Technician at a school that I have been working at for just over 3 years. Completely boring and monotonous, to be honest I feel like I've been drifting through life like a zombie thinking 'well, this is my life now.' Bit of back story, may or may not be relevant... I was home educated my entire school life, at 16 I had no qualifications or GSCE's so went to college for 3 years studying IT Support and Key Skills English and Math (for the 'special people' that didn't have GSCE's ' passed eveything with flying colours. I had the determination and drive to prove I wasn't going to end up in a warehouse. ANYHOO! I always wanted to do something extraordinary like join the forces, but never had enough confidence in myself to be able to hack it. But now I have spent three years in 'normal' work I realise it's not for me. I want to make something of myself... I can't stand just milling through life in an office job. I have been looking at Royal Artiliery IT Systems Operator and Royal Logistics Corps - Driver Comms Specialist. These seem to closely match my skill set. I sent off my application, and got a call for an interview with an Careers advisor on Wednesday. Here are my concerns, maybe you guys will be able to help with. I am worried my fitness levels aren't up to scratch to pass the training, I go to the gym regularly, I'm not overweight or anything but the concerns are there... I am more than prepared to hit the gym harder to pass the fitness tests. Will I have the opportunity to do so after speaking to my careers advisor, or will I get a blank 'no you're not fit enough' there and then? My other main concern is, I have a job, bills to pay etc... and don't want to put my job at risk by getting so far with the Army, leaving my job. Then getting told I have failed and and being left without a paddle. I know it's one or the other but with the climate being what it is, I am obviously concerned. Sorry about the long post, just wanting to give some insight... Try not to flame me too much!
