Data Analyst, Business Intelligence
U.S. Army - Specialist, Advanced Field Artillery Tactical Data Systems (AFATDS) Specialist
About

My job is similar to the analyst positions you might find at Intelligence shops in the military. My team prefers well-rounded talent, so I develop requirements for projects, model new aggregate data tables, help refine the presentation of data in interactive dashboards, and audit our existing tables and dashboards for accuracy. My military experience is leveraged uniquely to act as a subject-matter expert for certain collections of data, act as a resource for understanding the use and impact of that data, and to help articulate and refine the flow of our processes.

Advice

Be sensitive to shared similarities between your military experience and civilian opportunities, and go to school to deepen or round out your skill set to bridge the gap. When you go to school, seek internship opportunities right away; they are often the easiest way to enter an industry that interests you. Even a bad experience can help you refine your new career roadmap.
