Articles and interviews about the military
In the United States, members of the military, which includes the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, Air National Guard, and Army National Guard, work not only in occupations specific to the Armed Forces, like infantrymen or fighter pilots, but also in the civilian workplace, like lawyers or nurses. The magnitude of the Armed Forces demands its members to develop special skills that will help each branch of the military function optimally. Because of this, members of the Armed Forces can follow different occupational paths, such as construction, engineering, and public affairs. Although the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) only offers projections for the civilian workforce, on the “Military Careers” page of its website, the BLS states that “Opportunities should be very good for qualified individuals in all branches of the Armed Forces through 2024.” So, we interview professionals with a proven track record to provide useful information that will educate and empower others interested in a career in the Armed Forces.
