    Looking for some ideas for jobs to persue. I'm separating from the AF in Feb 2008. Once summer rolls around, I'll be back in school. I'll have the GI Bill paying for tuition+books, and a little rent, but I still need to find something to pay the rest of the bills :)

    I'm trying to stay away from foodservice, maximum commitment I'd have for a job is 3-4 years. I'm just looking for some ideas and thoughts from yall's past experiences.

    My goal is to make at least 24k, a little much to expect given my schedule constraints and education/experience, but I'm open to suggestions!

    I'd work full time if I could find a 2nd or 3rd shift job.

    You were an aircraft mech in the AF, right? If so, do that. Even w/o a licence 35k on 2nd or 3rd shift is easy. Want to come to GA?

    I wouldn't mind Georgia, but I'm trying to finish my BS EE at Virginia Tech once I separate. I tried looking into the regional airport at Roanoke, VA, but the only positions were A&P required. I can easily get my FCC... I've got my Amateur Radio License, the FCC GROL isn't very difficult, but I don't really have the time to get my A&P before I separate.

    Bartender. Good tips, night work. Just remember that no drinky while working or a school night. That along with the GI bill got me through a year and a half of college. Buy a bartenders guide and start practicing:D
