REME

#1
Sorry to bore you all with another careers related thread.

I dread the thought of going into an office job, so I was looking at going into the police but have recently become disillusioned with the idea. I do have a non-technical, not very useful degree. I have always had an interested with aeroplanes/helicopters, and am looking at the possibility of going into the REME in this area. I am 21.

How would this option work out, with future possibilities, compared to a graduate style management programme that I could be accepted onto (albeit in an office environment)?

Any advice very welcome.

How does avionics tech compare to aircraft tech, apart from one being electronics centred?
Though it may have changed in the last 5 years, but Avionics does everything, Aircraft dont! normally with the comment
"oooohh, thats got electrickery running through/over/under/near it, we dont touch that!"

Though it was never explained to me why, even offically, hydrolics came under Avionics!!! Ha Ha :D

With a degree under your belt have you considered a commission ? Pop into your nearest recruiting office and they will be able to shed more light on where your 'not very useful' degree would be appropriate.
Alternatively, the technical trades within REME (and the other technical Corps such as Royal Signals, Royal Engineers, etc) would all welcome someone with such an educational background, whether technical or not - you will be taught all the trade skills you need to do your job.

Why not look at the Int Corps? A degree in pschology would be of particular use there I would have thought.

Pyschology is a wonderful degree to have if a career in REME is what you are after.

1st - You'll be a dab hand at sussing out what Cfn Fuchnuts is crying about when he tells you his sad story to get off duty.

2nd - You'll understand that it is best just to shut up and not rock the boat or loose your career by telling the truth to the CO.

3rd - You'll be better equiped to understand when everyone and his dog is so frustrated by senior managment's willful disregard for anyones career but their own that you really should go see a shrink for even thinking of joining REME. :D

Oh ECI you really do need to get some professional help - maybe his degree could be best used looking after you?

Join as an Armourer, God's own trade, mentioned twice by Bill the Bard, lots of guns and lots of tea, and as a bonus you'll have ample reseach material for your doctorate, as us Armourers are a right bunch of fecking deviants, with pretty much every psychological symptom on display in any cellar near you...
