Start a Career in Gunsmithing

Have you ever thought of a career in Gunsmithing?

America is a country built on traditions, and firearm ownership is a tradition that has been with us since the beginning. More than a third of Americans report having a firearm in their house, or on their property.

The firearms industry has seen a massive increase in sales in recent years. 2012 set a record for the highest recorded number of sales in a given year, and 2013 even broke that record. With CNN reporting record-breaking Black Friday gun sales in 2014 - over three a second for a total of over 175,000 on that single day - the firearms industry shows little indication of slowing down.

But after two years of unemployment, here I am, back in the job market and gainfully employed. This time, however, I have a whole new appreciation for what it takes to land that next job. The following is a short list of what I learned during my latest employment drought.

Planning a Career as a Military Spouse? Think Portability!

Article by Craig Gilman, Faculty Member at American Military University

Joining the military means a life of training exercises and deployments away from home, not to mention periodic transfers with little choice of duty stations that can be found in countries half a world away. What comes with all that is a career, even if only for a few years, that provides opportunities for personal growth and satisfaction, professional challenge and reward, career development, and leadership opportunities that build a stronger resume.

Hiring Our Heroes: Teaching Employers To Hire Military Veterans And Spouses

I write about military financial independence, but Im getting a lot of e-mail about navigating the drawdown and starting a bridge career. Im also hearing from Reserve and National Guard servicemembers about balancing their military careers with their civilian employers. Veterans (and military spouses) know that their transition to a civilian career will be like transferring to a duty station in a foreign country. Theyll spend lots of time explaining their military skills and achievements to civilians and translating their military culture into a foreign language.
