I am gettin ready to get out of the Air Force after being in for 6 years.....short part of the story is ....too many deployments...other than that i love it for the most part...but i am gettin out in the next couple of months and have been looking for my next career.

the reason i joined was to see if anyone on here knows of anyplace that is Hiring that has decent pay and good benefits that doesnt involve mine work or overseas travel...lol..

I have been talking and interviewing with companies in souther ohio area as of now but i am want to live anywhere that is about 4ish hours from pike co or martin co.......my family is in pike county and my wifes is in martin..

anyone know of anything let me know...i am an Aerospace Ground Equipement Crafstman in the Air Force and that entails a strong electro/mechanical backgroud. Also includes hydraulics, pneumatics, refridgeration, diesel engines, electronics, electrics, troubleshooting...etc. etc.

Hi, Hog...As you can see in the upper right corner, I am in Pikeville..I just wanted to say that since both families are in Pike and Floyd counties, ythey should be able to find out pretty quick abiout employment around here. As you know you have a big choice if you want to stay within four hours from here. Google job searches in Knoxville, Lexington, Huntington, Charleston..In fact with 23 being completed noe, I can be in Dayton or Springfield, Ohio in about 5 hours. Good luck to you, and welcome to the forum

i have been lookin and applying online for a lot of jobs in those areas that you mentioned but i also know there is a "hidden job market" and usually those are the better paying jobs.....
i am working with a military placement company that helps seperating or retiring military find comparable jobs with big companies but they dont work with anyone in or around pike, floyd, johnson counties....

im pretty open to where i go......and i am looking ALOT for careers everywhere in that basic corridor.....just trying to get as many options as i can ya know

but yeah i mean dayton, cincinnati, columbus ...all open to that....just gettin nervous about getting out, and like i said....more options...mean more opportunities...lol
