Outlook

The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that employment for well-qualified individuals in the military will be good through 2024. While political and economic conditions will have an influence on the military's duties and employment outlook, it is a fact that the country 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 college degree from a military officer academic program will have the best chances for entering the military in an entry-level officer role. There will also continue to be employment opportunities as military officers advance to higher positions, leave the service, or retire.
