Can anyone help out because I am moving to the Fairfax, Va area and looking for employment?
I have been in the Marines for almost 11 years and I stepped on my crank and got in trouble for attempted adultery and inappropriate use of a government computer. Now I am trying to regroup and look ahead to the civilian world to provide for my family. I am a finance technician (7 years) and was a Marine recruiter (3 years) but no college degrees...I am planning on residing in Fairfax, Va but would live anywhere as long as I know I can get a decent job lined up....Obviously I screwed up and Im hoping I can just regroup somewhere...Any answers/info/ideas? As far as my family goes, I have 3 kids and one on the way ages 5, 4, and 2....My wife has been basically caring for our kids so she will rely on my income only...I will be able to use the GI Bill for some college but I am assuming that I may need 2 jobs at 1st until I get things situated...I have family in NY and PA so I dont want to be too far away if possible...Biggest interest is Sales/Finance field if possible-Thanx for the help!
