    Well Hitler was also an ex-full screw, so there is plenty of scope.......he could articulate himself in his native language though :D
  7. Will the next 4 years see you complete a 22year engagement?
    In any event YOU need to decide what YOU want to do. Leadership and management are required (although not always present) in any walk of life from
    Jobs in multinationals to running a local charity shop. Having a degree is still a good plus for getting interviews, that is, in the pre-sort your CV will go into ‘lets have a look’ pile whilst those with no degree will probably not get an interview. Depends on the level of job of course which was the main thrust of your question. If you are a time served Warrant Officer you can offer man-management skills (or person management if you prefer) and all the other ‘hand on’ skills acquired in looking after soldiers, accommodation, equipment, expensive stores, organising etc etc. In fact a wealth of skills and a positive can do attitude which IF you sell yourself properly can greatly assist in landing the job YOU want. Another strand of thought is to consider the specifics of whatever branch or trade you are in – do these translate in any way to a civilian role? However you are asking the question in good time and preparing for the difficult transition to civvy life. Start looking in trade papers and at job ads to try and find an area and then a specific type of job that interests you. Good luck in your search for a satisfying and rewarding job in civvy strasse and good luck also with your degree studies.
