Exploring This Job

A first step in exploring a military career is to determine which branch suits you best: Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, or U.S. Coast Guard. Talk to family members and friends to see if they have served or know someone who has served in the military. Create a list of questions and schedule a time to speak with them about their experience. Find out as much as you can about what they appreciated and learned from most and what they found to be most challenging. It's important to know all of the pros and cons because you will be signing a contract to serve for a number of years; you must be sure this is a commitment you can fulfill.
