Armed Forces Industry Outlook

Part two in our series of industry outlooks as we gear up for the Employment Guide to Careers is focusing on the Armed Forces. This encompasses all facets of the armed forces and focuses on careers during and after service. View an excerpt from the full outlook below:

Maintaining a strong national defense encompasses such diverse activities as running a hospital, commanding a tank, programming computers, operating a nuclear reactor, or repairing and maintaining a helicopter. The military provides training and work experience in these and many other fields for more than 2.6 million people. More than 1.4 million people serve in the active Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force, and more than 1.2 million serve in their Reserve components, and the Air and Army National Guard. The military distinguishes between enlisted and officer careers. Enlisted personnel, who make up about 85 percent of the Armed Forces, carry out the fundamental operations of the military in areas such as combat, administration, construction, engineering, health care, and human services. Officers, who make up the remaining 15 percent of the Armed Forces, are the leaders of the military, supervising and managing activities in every occupational specialty of the Armed Forces.

For the rest of this article please visit The Orlando Employment Guide. Check back tomorrow for another exciting industry outlook and don't forget to utilize our job search function on the right side of the page.

Happy job hunting Orlando!
