Im looking at going to the Navy (Australia) as an eletronic tech. because at the moment my life sucks and i am going nowhere in my current job in sales. I will be earning double the amount of $$ i am now along with learning a whole heap off new skills.
to be honest. Do it if you really want to do it, not because you earn more money. In the end, money isn't that important. I know that I'm going to try to get a job that I will love, no matter how much money I get. Since most people are working for about 35-40 years. I don't know, maybe 330 days a year? And like 8h/day. Now thats a lot of working, and I sure as hell would like to spend that doing something I like instead of just doing it for the money.
well its something i enjoy and love to do, but the money is also a bonus, and the fact that i don't have to pay much at all for the food and accommodation!! so my plan is to get out of the navy and buy a nice house and all that type of stuff!
