Career Decisions

Individuals with military experience already have a jump start on the career development process. Through your commendable service, you have most likely developed personal qualities and skills that can transfer to a new career.

This section is a starting point for veterans to evaluate their skills, abilities, and interests when choosing what type of career and degree program to enter. The career development process may not necessarily move in a “linear” path.

Many veterans choose to enter degree programs which reflect their military background while others pursue lifelong career goals unrelated to their service. Either way, your military experience can remain an important part of your identity as you expand your career interests and select a college program that is right for you.
