More Job Success After Military Separation

There's no need to struggle translating your vast military experience into a successful post-military career; you are a highly valuable employee by virtue of your military experience!

These careers in particular will leverage your military skills and create your highest level of success in the civilian job market.


Intelligence Analyst is a great post-military career because service members are experienced in the field responsibilities which include collecting and analyzing data to solve operational problems, and evaluating operating systems.

In addition, military service members have already passed extensive background and security clearances necessary for Intelligence Analyst work, easing the transition and removing the barriers into this post-military career.


Field Service Engineer utilizes your years of military leadership and military resourcefulness. Field Service Engineers are required to troubleshoot and be quick-thinking problem solvers in order to make quick repairs.

Field Service Engineers are not just handymen. Your new career will have management responsibilities that include training employees and orchestrating large projects, demanding leadership and sophisticated management experience. These are many of the skills the military has prepared you to master.


Comptroller makes a great post-military career for service members adept at managing money using skills you may have already built through years of experience juggling military budgets - including your own - and managing financial allocations from different military departments.

Comptrollers are responsible for accounting, payroll, cashiering, and financial goal setting for companies. Comptrollers work independently, but must collaborate with others and present confidence in their leadership skills - attributes you take with you from your years in the military.


Human Resources Manager is a great post-military career for service members who are confident, skilled communicators and program managers, as well as personable and able to interact with a wide variety of people, using tact and diplomacy. If you have been in the military for a number of years and especially if you lived on a military base, you have already been trained and lived the life working together for the good of a unit, as well as knowing how to bring out the best qualities in each member of the team in order to serve the larger, overall success goals.

Does this sound like a person who might be valuable to as a Human Resources Manager? You bet!

Human Resources Managers are responsible for designing and implementing staff policies, allocating employee benefits, organizing employee and workplace safety training programs.
