Do you think the military route is good? Are you worried about doing a tour?
What trade do you plan on joining? That's the million dollar question! I can give you a rough guide line of what action you should take.

Go into trades like plumbing or welding.
Welding is a bad bet. A lot of the good welding jobs have gone either to unskilled/low paid production work, or robotic.
You can weld for 12 bucks an hour or watch a robot weld for 14 bucks an hour.

Plumbing is good, if you can get into the union.
I don't know how much non union plumbers make.

I do union electrical.
1200 bucks for 36 hours after taxes is not too bad...

No f**king clue. I tried taking a pre-apprenticeship in electrical and didn't really like it too much... although I had other personal problems at the time.

Well here's a few trades and what how to go about it. These are the trades I know of from the back of my head that get max Private rank pay after college. You make $4120 a month because the military doesn't have to train you and can pump you immediately into the work force.

Vehicle Tech - College > Join > 3 Month Basic > Pay Raise
AVN Tech - College > Join > 3 Month Basic > Pay Raise
AVS Tech - College > Join > 3 Month Basic > Pay Raise
ACS Tech - College > Join > 3 Month Basic > Pay Raise
Cook - College > Join > 3 Month Basic > Pay Raise
Military Police - Police Foundation > 3 Month Basic > Pay Raise
