YAY!!!! After 4 years in the military and 6 months of being home and looking for a job, he finally got an offer!!!
It’s not amazing by any means, the pay is a joke, the hours are all over the place, but it’s SOMETHING! I know he’s not too excited, but it is what it is.
BUT, he went to an ex-military career fair yesterday and a major aerospace/defense corporation (Northrop-Grumman) was eyeballing him for a geospatial counterterrorism opening. He said the recruiter was very anxious about getting his resume and talking to him. You have to have a clearance and military experience for that position (check and CHECK!). So HOPEFULLY he’s only at this current job for a little bit before taking on a real career!

YAY!! Don’t they always say it is easier to get a job once you have a job? haha :p
Anyways, hope the second job works out for him, and even if it doesn’t, at least he has some work!

@babyboo, that’s what i’ve been telling him! a 6 month no-working gap on your resume does NOT look good.
Interestingly enough, if he gets the NG job, we’ll be at competing companies working for the exact same sectors.

NG is a pretty solid company to work for — well any government/defense contractor is 🙂 My fiance works on a lot of counter terrorism bids for his contractor, so it’s a big field, apparently. Hopefully that works out!
