Welcome to Ciao. An interesting first review, too, and attractively written. One suggestion: if, as I suspect from your use of the US date format, you're not from the UK, it might be a good idea to mention that as procedures for this sort of thing can differ by country. by davidbuttery

It really would be more helpful to know the sort of thing one could expect to do on a day to day basis as many people have a fear of joining up thinking it's really long and exhausting days or all danger. To encourage more people to seriously consider it as a career option you could talk about maybe starting salaries, career prospects, training available, etc. Welcome to Ciao. :) by anonymili

I tend to agree with other members comments made, there is a great deal more that you could have said here. I was married to a soldier in my teens, he loved the life & so did I! Agree that it's a career that requires commitment... by brittle1906
I think there is so much more you could have said about the army. My hubby has just passed his 11 year point and he is aiming for his 22 years full service. With the job situation in this country i think it is one of the only secure jobs at the moment, although it is a dangerous one. I totally agree on the pay, they are well underpaid for the job that they do. by sewbizzie

This was a waste of Money!
Review of American Intercultural Student Exchange by Student03

Advantages: The organization got me here, although I was switched to another family after arriving
Disadvantages: Do not seem to care about the students. Do not perform the job correctly.

AISE is understaffed, unhelpful and extremely expensive. There were several students in my area that were switched around like I was. I am not sure what the company did with my $10,000+ USD but it was not worth it! This company does not check all of it ... Read review
