I am in my last year of service and will be looking for employment shortly. My question is "Is it worth my time & money applying for membership of professional bodies such as SOE, MIM etc"? Does anyone have any experience of actually getting a job based on these type of 'qualifications'? Are they a useful way of communicating Military experience in civvie language or just an old boys network which may or may not help getting a job? Seems a lot of money to pay out if no job comes from it. Any thoughts appreciated.
