My boyfriend just went into to basic and we live in the South were alot of major bases for the Coast Guard are. I just got my B.S. in Computer Science and I am a programmer for the state of Alabama. I worked hard for the job I have. I love my boyfriend and we plan on getting married but the idea of moving alot seems like it would kill my career chances. I love him to death though and will stick by him since he is also my best friend as well. I just need information that he couldn't give me.
So I have a few questions.
How long is someone assigned to a base(on average)?
Should I start looking for federal jobs that can transfer rather than state ones?
Or should I be ok with private sector jobs?
Any information is appreciated.
