Here are some progressions we have seen with our sponsor mid family, keeping in mind everyone gets a BS with a solid STEM core, which opens up a wide variety of career paths. Below is a sampling of major, military field, civilian role. I do think IT-related majors make sense for Cyber paths. Honors English>Marine logistics>mid-level executive systems engineer for major tire company Q Econ>Navy Air>healthcare company finance department Physics>Marine ground>clandestine service>owns brew pub Oceanography>surface warfare>active field agent for major ABC agency Aero>submarine warfare>CFP and investment advisor History>subs>divinity school and youth pastor Poli Sci>Marine ground>executive with national financial services company Computer Science>subs>Microsoft (this seems very logical!) Math>Marine ground>major athletic apparel company in marketing Aero>Navy Air>Marine Air>Air National Guard full-time (quite a story) Systems engineering>surface warfare>executive at an investment banking firm Aero>Navy Air>has a gym franchise Mech E>EOD>govt consultant DOD contractor English> surface warfare>HR with national credit card firm Systems E>intel>career placement director at a state university (couldn’t face working in buildings with no windows anymore) All have advanced degrees obtained on AD or with GI Bill. When I worked at USAA, there were dozens of SA grads, NROTC/OCS/OTS former/Reserve/Guard officers, with every conceivable combination of undergraduate degree and military specialty, working in every line and staff division. It’s the same as the company I am at now. If you look at LinkedIn, and do an Advanced Search, pick any large or well-known company (Amazon, Microsoft, Grumman, Under Armour, USAA, Coca Cola, etc.), and insert one of the Service Academies for “school,” you’ll see the profiles pop up. You can often figure out the career path and major from the profile.
