IB and Part Time Armed Service Role?
Hello monkeys. I have a question for all of you. Context: My father, and his father, and his father, etc, are all military guys (some enlisted, some officer). It would be fair to say it runs in my blood. I have always been keen on serving in some capacity but found my professional ambitions to be at odds with that. After doing some digging, it seems it is possible to take up "part-time" opportunities, at least within the Navy. The position I am looking at requires an initial multi-week training (which, in theory, I would complete between college graduation and starting my IB role), one weekend a month of "drilling", and two weeks per year of "Annual Training".
Have any of you heard of any IB analysts doing anything like this? Obviously it would take up a large proportion of what little free time I would have as an analyst. But, if I see it as more of a hobby than an obligation, I think it might be something I might really enjoy. Wouldn't hurt future B-school applications either. Thanks in advance.
