Looking for liberty minded job advice!Submitted by DTOM52 on Wed, 09/25/2013 - 20:25
Hope all is well with everyone. I have posted on the site before and asked about the coast guard etc. I now have another question about a career. I have read a topic about being in a contradictory job but it just didn't get my question quite answered.
I've spent the last year in emt and firefighting school and now it has come down to applying for jobs. I have gotten my first interview and it is looking like a sure winner for me to get the job as the pay is little compared to big cities. They scheduled my interview basically the day I applied and the interview is before application deadline. Anyway, I feel like I'm contradicting my political philosophy as I'll be in a government job with decent benefits such as healthcare. The pay isn't great but it'll pay the bills. Heck I've done public work for municipalities most of my working life from street to parks department (I'm 21). Part of me really wants out of the public sector because of my philosophy but I don't know what else to do. I like serving people but really don't have any inherests. Firefighting just sounded exciting and Id get to serve people and my country. It seems a lot who share my philosophy also frown on public service such as fire roads etc (benefits and pay to high). So my question what are some libertarian minded jobs? I like the outdoors but other than that my interests are slim to none. I'm thinking about trying to be a farmer and cowboy but that's difficult to get into (have to know somebody) and is somewhat govt funded if you think about it. I have some college but no degree and live in bfe as of now (I like it that way haha) so college is kinda out of the question due to location. Any advice? Stick with firefighting as a career or should I look for more libertarian minded jobs (I can't think much of any).
Thanks in advance. It appreciated.
Sorry if this is in the wrong spot. I had no idea where to put it.
