If you get a job at either of those companies, why would you join the service? Those jobs are better than what you would have to go through most of the jobs you get joining the service. If Google hires you, keep that as long as you get some solid vacation (try to get 3 to 4 weeks from the off) and spend 2 weeks in 3 separate countries in Europe, SEA, or South America (but be smart where you go on this continent )

If nothing pans, then join the service. I'd use that as a last resort if I was in your place.

A few years ago I was unemployed for about 3 months, I decided I was going to take some time off to get back in shape. Changed my diet, no more bread, tortillas, soft drinks, sugar nor snacks. I ate healthy and exercised almost daily. I lost 30lbs in that time span. I was at the heaviest I had ever been and looking back, I turned lemons into lemon juice...now I'm almost the same weight I was in high school. I might gain a pound or two occasionally now but never anywhere near the weight I accumulated through the years to get to the fat fukk I had become. Proud to say that years later I'm still in shape...

OP, stop being a chubby twenty something year old. If you aren't in shape now, most likely you will never be...go for it, bro

you might make more than you were originally making.

Send me an email.

I spent a year unemployed and got a job (that was low paying) and then parlayed it into a much better paying job (better than the job I was laid off from). Revamped and edited my resume many, many times to suit different job descriptions that really highlighted my soft skills.

I'm willing to help you out if you need it. I can also refer you to a highly recommend resume service but he will cost money.

I was pretty useless with the drone questions but can help you out here.
