Hello, I currently hold a B.S. in Physics with a minor in Mathematics, but personally felt that to be more prepared for a job in industry, I would need to obtain a Master's degree, so I went through the whole graduate school application process, got into graduate school, and just recently withdrew. For several reasons, I was just not doing well and was not happy in the least bit at that school. Like everyone else, I would love to obtain a job where I can use my degree to conduct research and do some great hands-on work, but I am finding from a lot of these companies that I apply to, that there is a huge emphasis on prior work experience (with leadership-type roles). I am 24 and have been a student for as long as I can remember, so that is something that I am seriously lacking, right now. Shell, for example, has a pretty rigorous application process and, although, I feel confident I will do well on the online assessments and my resume looks great, I feel that I will fail on the phone interview where the HR representative will ask me those "What would you do if..." or "Name a time where you had to...". Enough of the background information. I am also looking into careers in the Air Force which would help me get some solid work experience, but I have gotten advice from current/prior-enlisted friends that is all over the spectrum. Different branches+different experiences (good and horribly bad)=different advice. What I'm looking for on here is some more advice from like-minded individuals who have maybe experienced what I am experiencing now or can give me some more advice on the military job idea. Thank you.
