No. I got out and am just trying to break into the industry. I've got my CPO course in Apr and have been looking around for jobs to apply for. It's hard stuff, researching like I were back in school. So much info to go through.

How did you find it when you started? Hard or easy?

Well yeh its pretty tough to be fair.The market is swamped with guys who have left the forces and done CP courses etc. Some guys from the unit are in the business and in Iraq. Depends what your aiming for tho, are you looking at UK or Hostile Enviro? Also what course are you doing?

My advice is to complete your CP course,sort your SIA Licence out,then look at doing seperate medics course as there are not that many good qualified medics in teams both here or Iraq, also look at doing a surveillance course, in a word what I'm saying is,the more of a mixed skill set you have,the more employable you become. Ex Med do various med courses, which im sure you will have seen on here. Also a couple of Ex 1LI guys asked me for advice with regards to getting into the industry,they didnt listen and it took 1 alot longer than he first thought. Doesnt bother me,but I gave advice because Im working here and I network with some very experienced guys.
