Military Workers, Enlisted

Outlook

Employment for well-qualified people in the military will be good through 2024, according to the Department of Labor. Political and economic conditions have an influence on the military's duties and employment outlook, but the United States will always need the armed forces, both for defense and to protect its interests and citizens around the world. In the coming years, the primary barrier to obtaining a position in the services will not be a lack of available jobs but rather the increasingly high education standards that new recruits must meet. As jobs become more complex and integrated with new technologies, those with solid educational backgrounds, including at least some college training, will have the best chances for entering the services.
