    Does military service help with getting a good job?
    Hi I am planning to join the army or the marine a few years from now and I was wondering the benefits of going to college before enlisting? And also do most people get a good job after they leave the marine or army if they graduated from college?
    Thank you

    There are ROTC programs at most colleges, and officer training school. So do you prefer management or worker positions.

    Looking for a job, saying you were a Captain may go further than saying you were a corporal or sgt ( not that the Sargent don't actually run the army, but it is not the same on a resume.

    Many places will look good at you, if you have military training and have some years of military service. **also military is a great career, and staying in can be a great option.
