interested in moving to Malta

Hi, I am interested in moving to Malta in the future and I was wondering if I could get some answers I have a few questions. I am 17 years old at the moment and I am entering the U.S. Army ROTC, I will be getting a bachelor's degree in criminal justice and I was wondering if that would be of any use in Malta? also I will have leadership experience because I plan on being a Military Police Officer and would have experience in leading,motivating and managing from my military background and expirence.would these skills help me find a job in Malta ? if so would I be limited to only law enforcement? thank you for reading my questions and thanks to those who reply.

Hi Patrick ,

A very interesting post , on a travel forum , even if a bit out of place . I was 17 once , a long time ago , and will try to answer with some of my views .

As you have said , the most likely job for you after obtaining a bachelors degree in criminal justice would be in law enforcement , and the local government does employ a quantity of cadets regularly . You would qualify for a higher rank with your experience .

You may try to find a job as a manager in security with a local hotel or company , but these jobs are hard to come by and are usually filled by retired 45 year old ex police officers.

You MUST have a very good reason for heading to Malta from New York, but I fail to understand as in my experience I have met a lot of people who want to leave a small island community to try their luck in a large city like New York , not the other way round .

My opinion , may be a bit hard to swallow , but reality is what it is , and at present the local job market is not a very happy one with a recession looming on the horizon.

I would consider furthering my studies in the legal field possibly ? The Malta University has much to offer .

Good Luck and take care
