Support Resources

It is important to determine if your education choices align with your future career goals. Whether you stay in the military or choose to transition, your education choices can have a major impact on your future success. Think about these questions:

  • Will the degree meet the requirements for advancement in the military? Will it help get the civilian job I want?
  • Is there a demand in the job market for the skills I’ll get in my chosen education program?
  • Will the degree and school I choose be widely accepted in my preferred career field?
  • Does the education path align with my interests, values, and skills?

With Kuder Journey, a professional military education counselor can help you answer these questions. Be sure to use the "Contact a Counselor" link!
