Politcally Incorrect Musings
To reject or not reject

I came across a civil service job that looked interesting. It was with the AAC (Army Aquisition Corp). In further review today, I am not so sure it is for me. It looks more like a facilities type job - that is, setting up command centers with computers and such. Plus there is lots of travel, domestic and FOREIGN, involved.

But the travel is not what bothers me. I actually have no problem with getting sent to the sandbox and playing "duck and cover". The reason I am leaning against the job is because it is not a hardware design job. It is logistics. It is program management. My F-I-L is doing program management type work and is not real happy with it. He is also an engineer.

However, it does cover a lot of interesting things (mostly network related) and, being civil service, would be a stable and secure job. I am told by a guy that did AAC work while in the service, that if I get my aqusition certificate I could be earning in the six figure area.

I guess I could apply for it and if I don't like it I could always bail. What do y'all think?

Better to try for it and have a job, then be unemployed, dear. Also, if the fates are kind to you, you might have your old job back after a couple of months.

I would still pursue it. It could turn out to be better than you fear.

Yea, I think you should try it, as they say "Somthin is better then Nothin " and it can tide you over til' something else comes along !!!!
