Promoting Specialty Consultations Specific to Wounded Warriors: Confidential Help for Wounded Warriors and Families The military gives every service member the opportunity to enter with virtually no skills and leave with an array of skills needed in the civilian job market. Some job-related skills are easily converted to civilian terms — military police become law enforcement officers, for example. Other skills, such as leadership and discipline, are also highly prized by civilian companies. Your military career will give you the chance to explore job opportunities and develop your own personal skill set. Knowing what skills to pursue and then developing them will help guide your career decisions while you're in the military.
