My only child has been in the DEP program since Oct 2011. He entered this program in hopes of landing a guaranteed job contract. Each month he reports but each month the jobs he selected are not available to the dep'ers. So now his recuriter said he needs to go in as open general because his name was chosen in the computer? Now I have been trying to stay out of the decision making(he is an adult now) but Im having a hard time doing this. He brought home yesterday a contract to b signed going in as open general. I can tell he is struggling with it but he said he has no choice but to sign and go in. He has until Feb, 1st to respond back to recruiter.
Has anyone here or no of someone who entered BMT as open. Without a guaranteed job? I have turned to the internet reviewed videos and read chats and about 80% say dont go in with out a job. My child has also read, talked to recuriter numerous times and I guess the not knowing is making him hesitate. He is very nervous.
Is there anyone else here that has either gone through this with there kid or know any other groups that could help me? By the way this site rocks! So glad to have found it....................................
