Could it possibly effect your chance to get hired after your service in a bad way?

Yep, the Taliban get the hump if you go for a job with them after being a Royal Marine.

I would have thought any service history would look good on your CV. Especially if it's a real top bollock force like the Marines. And that reply from Ninja were quality! :laugh:

It is generally good, unless the person interviewing you has strong anti war views in which case you are buggered.

You can use it to tick all their boxes quite easily, being in the RM implies that you work well in a team, can work under your own initiative, hard working, work well under pressure etc.

You have never had the life of a solider so you would not know.

:iagree: you may be forced into living as a civvie - injury, discharged, money problems, family, or at the worst case getting wounded in battle and not being able to carry on as a Marine.

You will have to be a civvie again one day so it should always be on your mind, therefore it is good to have a backup plan (grades and qualifications earned before applying for the forces etc)
