Submission + - Military Reserve Jobs for Nerds?

lmnfrs writes: I'm a technically inclined dropout who has had a few contracts with big name companies. Those names and job titles get my resume noticed, but lacking a formal education frequently gets me ignored. Finding decent work seems more difficult than it should be. Sometimes it even feels like my only option is applying at a megastore to work with people who don't understand the difference between the thing you plug your hard drives into and the thing you use to play video games..
Will a technical Reserve job look good and help me find a permanent job after I finish the training? If not, is it still worth it for the educational funds I'll receive from the government?
P.S. I have read 'The Living Dilbert?' — I'm just looking for something that will get interviews, where I have no problem proving myself.
