What are the highest paying jobs transitioning from military to civilian?
Does anyone have a list or know appro~ what you can make transferring into that civilian job. I'm going to ace my ASVAB again. I took it before and scored the 99 percentile. But I have to retake it because its been a few years. I was thinking about possibly going to work for Lockheed Martin after the military. I'll be going into the Army or the Navy, still have some things I want to look at before I make my decision. Oh the Air Force was my first choice, but I'm too old and I don't meet age requirements. I don't plan on staying in the military. I am joining for the training and for the education. I don't have the money... i'm there for the money. I could care less about killing people that never bothered me. but, I'm no coward, I'll fight if need be. Right now I don't need to. I need money to pay for things. I also have 208 college credits and a college degree. I'm too old to be an Officer otherwise I would do that also.

LOL ASVAB don't mean anything in the civilian world. And once you have a job in the military, it doesn't count for anything, unless you are trying to change jobs in the military. If you are trying to cross rate as we call it in the Navy, from say OS to IS you have to meet the minimum scores for asvab. Ask your... More

If you've got your degree, why don't you head to Lookheed Martin now? Surely you must have some skills from your university studies? And, you'd be better off starting there now and working your way up through the company, then doing the military for 4-6 years and then trying to get started! You're going to start at... More
