Upcoming Government Job Outlook for the Next Decade.

Opportunities should be excellent for qualified individuals in all branches of the Armed Forces.

The United States spends a significant portion of its overall budget on national defense. The number of active duty personnel is expected to remain roughly constant through 2020. Escalation in national security should keep rising as new national threats appear.

There is approximately One Million soldiers currently retiring out of our military forces. The current goal of the Armed Forces is to maintain a force sufficient to fight and win two major regional conflicts at the same time. Political events, however, could lead to a significant restructuring.

Employment Expectation

Opportunities should be excellent for qualified individuals in all branches of the Armed Forces through 2020. Many military personnel retire with a pension after 20 years of service, while they still are young enough to start a new career.

About 165,000 personnel must be recruited each year to replace those who complete their commitment or retire. Since the end of the draft in 1973, the military has met its personnel requirements with volunteers.

When the economy is thriving and civilian employment opportunities generally are more favorable, it is more difficult for all the services to meet their recruitment quotas. It is also more difficult to meet these goals during times of war, when recruitment goals typically rise. When there are economic downturns, recruits may face more competition for various occupational specialties.

Educational requirements will continue to rise as military jobs become more technical and complex. High school graduates and applicants with a college background will be sought to fill the ranks of enlisted personnel, while nearly all officers will likely need at least a bachelor's degree and, in some cases, a graduate degree as well.
