What can I expect in the civilian sector with this kind of Navy training?
I'm shipping out to Navy boot camp in June of this year under the job designation AECF (Advanced Electronics Computer Field). If I enjoy myself I was hoping to become an officer and make a long career out of my time serving in the Navy, but I'm also curious what I could expect out of a job in the civilian sector if I choose to leave after my contract has been fulfilled. There are two disciplines in AECF: Electronic's Technician (ET) and Fire Controlman (FC). An ET's job is to maintain and repair electronics equipment such as radar, communication and navigation equipment. An FC's job is to operate, maintain and repair the Fire Control Radars, mainframe computers, large screen displays, LANS, weapon control consoles, automatic gun systems and associated electro-mechanical systems utilized in weapons systems. I'm still considering my options, but I'm leaning more toward the ET discipline. I haven't decided which one suits me best, but still, I would like to know what kinds of jobs I could expect to get in both disciplines in the civilian job market and what kinds of salaries I could expect with the associated training and knowledge. It's my understanding that I could be looking at jobs starting in the six figures in terms of salary if I got out. A recruiter at my office who is a Fire Controlman gave me this impression when I overheard him talking to someone about what he could expect in the job market if he left the Navy.
