Education and Training to keep me Very Competitive and On Call with Employment.
To be honest, just knowing how to effectively use microsoft excel will probably put you ahead of people. Its very low in terms of programming skills, but the fact remains it is used with almost every company.
Granted I think software development will be the future, so i think learning a programming language like python would help you as well.
I agree with John, you need to first do some career research prior to jumping into education. For instance many positions in healthcare only require a certificate or associates degree, providing above average salaries. Further education also will enhance positions, salary and responsibility.
Do not fall prey to the many schools that "attack" transitioning military. Keep in mind, profile or not for profile their goal is to sell you their school and a degree they feel may fit you. Know what you want before you hit the school market-shop the market, see who will give you credit for your training and experience in the military. Also check for regional and national accreditation. While on line schools provide a lot of benefits, many do not offer the opportunity to do internships, network with other students, attend SVA(Student Veterans of American) meetings. Many of these benefits are not available on line. Again, do your research, for instance a CNC certificate in areas provide good careers with potential opportunity for advancement, if you want to obtain more education.
