i need a little of advice on a serious level so if youre in high school or aren't experienced enough in real world situations please dont respond.
over the summer before my current senior year of college i highly considered a job in the united staes service, more particularly the naval branch. this was mostly because of certain opportunities that can come up through being in the service, and the honor associated with it wuold make myself proud.
the chances of myself being offered a real job in the real world, something that i could do for forty years before retiring, came up, and i accepted the job. its with a great accounting firm in new york city, and there are many travel/placement opportunities, and opportunities to move both horizonatally and vertically within the system. ever since accepting their offer, i have been thinking about the big apple and all the great things that come associated with it.
however as of late, i began to wonder whether or not i made the right choice in regards to my immediate future. one path sets me up for some pretty sweet government employment opportunities, and the other sets me up to make some serious cash in the private sector.
basically what im asking is for some outside analysis, and what your opinion might be on the situation.
please no bullshit.
