Employment in the armed forces is expected to be excellent for all occupations through 2018, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. When the economy is good and/or during times of war, more people pursue employment in the civilian workforce, which creates additional opportunities in the military. With the U.S. military involved in several international conflicts, most significantly in Iraq and Afghanistan, demand should continue to be strong for military workers. Military recruiters will be in steady demand over the next decade as the U.S. military tries to meet recruiting goals in all five military branches. More than 184,000 men and women are recruited into the U.S. military each year to replace those who have completed their commitment.
