DOD jobs for prior service
Hello, I have another question for any other veterans out there. I took the advice of other prior service members on this forum and applied for a few DoD contracting jobs after passing NET+ and SEC+ (this week). I wanted to first say thanks for the people who recommended indeed jobs and obtaining the SEC+ cert because you were right it opens up MANY doors into the contracting world. But my next question is, although right now I have these certs and no experience, does it make sense to pass a DOD 8570 level III cert like CASP or should I take a IT service desk job at a base in Hawaii (my home) for $40,000? I feel like CASP/Level III would open up more doors and increase salary, but will having no experience limit me? Maybe just settle for help desk job that is being offered right now and gain experience and afterwards go for a Level III cert? I dunno. Anyone with any advice or similar experience/background is appreciated.
