Advice

Don’t get hung up on your MOS, but instead look at your duty position and the additional duties and special assignments you have done. Take the time to translate your military skill sets to civilian terminology; you have more experience than you think you do. Also remember the leadership schools that you have attended as well as those “little courses” you thought that don’t matter – you’ll be surprised to find out that they do.

Takeaways

Get as much education as you can while on active duty. If you haven’t quite figured out what you want to do, at least complete the “core requirements” for a bachelor’s degree.
