Perhaps in these tough economic times, reservists should simply go active duty and make a career out of it. My father, sister, and brother did it (and my other brothers and I spent time in the military, though not a career.) It's a good job to be in - I enjoyed it. But, it would seem that if private sector jobs are in short supply then, one would make an attempt to remain in the military.(It's simply a market-based supply/demand thing.) The other lesson learned here - and this applies to anyone in any job - is to take advantage of educational opportunities to make sure that you have the education and marketable skills for what you want to do beyond the job you're currently in.(The military does provide these educational opportunities.) In today's job environment, to step out into the workforce with only a high school diploma is probably not the wisest move.

To many people believe the job they have will remain the same forever. Sooner or later they will be replaced by technological improvements and by individuals who have the education needed to meet those needs.
The days of pushing buttons on a press, assembly line work are coming to an end replaced by robots.
Isn't a shame that the only task a piece a machinery can't perform is where dexterity is required which leaves factory workers performing the least skilled tasks.
