1. Have you considered the military as an option after graduation?
No, I have not considered the military as an option after graduation.
2. If yes, what branch are you thinking about?
If no, why have you not considered the military?
I have not considered the military because I believe my skills and talents will be
more useful for other fields. Although there exist some jobs in the military that
would coincide well with my abilities, I am more confident that it is not ideal for
me.
3. From what sources have you built your opinion on military careers? (Family, friends, TV shows,
news, etc.)

come across in school. Specifically, my history classes have proven as valuable
sources to base my speculations on.

Part III Response


4. Which of the 3 military jobs would you like best? Why?
Choosing between the 3 military jobs I have defined, the Information Technology
Specialist job seems ideal. It is more focused on the topic of computer science as
its training also revolves around computer science and will assist in guiding my
skills are a computer programmer. The other two jobs, Intelligence Analyst and
Human Intelligence Collector, are inferior to the future civilian careers that the
Information Technology Specialist provides. The required ASVAB score for the
Information Technology Specialist is 95, compared to the other two, which are 101.
It is slightly easier to locate myself in that job.
5. Did you know that this job existed before? Or, are you surprised that it exists?
Yes, I was aware this job existed before; However, I did not know it is technically
known as enlisting in the army. I was not enlightened of the knowledge of how
to achieve obtaining this job, therefore this surprised me that it existed in the
Army field.
6. Now that youve looked into this career, do you think it might be a good option for you? Weigh
the pros and cons of military service, government benefits, and being able to transition into a
civilian career with the other paths to the career (usually college).
Yes, it might be a good option for me. After considering the benefits of the army
after the 8 year commitment, it does seem worth the thought. Especially if it pays
for college, which would be difficult to get into due to money problems. With the
housing, tax reduction, food allowance, and health care, this career is definitely
worth considering.
