So here's the deal, I'm 29, A military vet. I have 2 BA degrees and since grad, 2 years ago. I have still yet to find work. So my question is. When your backed into a corner. How much can a person take before they snap and go into the illegal market. I mean really, i'm trained for much more then robbin fools. But its starting to look pretty good so i can keep food on the table and pay my student loans. Whats all your opinions? Is it time to FSU?

Dude don't do it. You know it ain't right.

#s tough right now for a lot of people.

Maybe you need to PCS civilian style? Maybe somewhere with a better economy?

Heh. I was talking like a state with a better economy. What're your BAs in?

Yeah ain't so bad down here. Pretty chill and liberal for TX. Economy is damn good here too. A crap ton of people have moved here since 2008 like ATX was some sort of promise land. We have a lot of high end jobs available around here. Hence the degree question.

Default on the loan. It's not like you have a lot to lose if you do.

Hang in there, I think things will take a turn for the better after the upcoming elections.

Oh and a lot of the employers around here are pro vet too.

You should more to a State where there are more opportunities in your field of training. California is over-saturated with people trained in what you are. No wonder you are having a hard time finding work.

ETA:. thesungod posted some links for you....

I've applied everywhere muliple times. Can't get an interview. I am currently making a game to deploy on android. Its really fun to play and should be done in a month or 2. I really hope it turns stuff around for me. And its not that i'm not good at what I do. I'm really good. When the game is done maybe some of you all could give it a test drive for free or something. I'm only gonna charge a dollar for it when its done.

Great point. But how do you move when your in debt and have no money? I would love to go somewhere else. I bet if i was outta cali it would be way easier.
