A Life-Changing Opportunity Waiting

It’s not just the world-class training, competitive salary, generous benefits and opportunities to earn an advanced education. It’s more than the immense responsibilities Navy servicemembers take on, more than the high standards they are challenged to live up to, more than the culture of mentorship that encourages fellow Sailors to help each other succeed.

Simply put, working in today’s Navy is a career unlike any other. Think about it: the unrivaled experiences – by sea, air or land. The chance to travel around the world. Ships so big they are floating cities. Potential participation in humanitarian missions whenever, wherever there’s a need. And, of course, the privilege of being someone who defends America and freedom all over the world as a mission over and above the pursuit of professional success.

Officers In Many Professional Areas Wanted In this community of service-minded people, those who have a college degree or who are working toward one have the opportunity to become Navy Officers, which equates to being both managers and leaders. Officers in the Navy earn pay that is competitive with the private sector along with added perks like comprehensive health care and tax-free housing allowances. And they carry with them a whole other degree of experience and respect – whether serving as Medical Officers or Nuclear Officers, Engineering Officers or Intelligence Officers.

The Navy has one of the most renowned health-care networks in the world – employing physicians, dentists, nurses and other specialized medical personnel to care for servicemembers and others in need. And if the world of high tech is your calling, the Navy has some of the world’s most sophisticated technology in everything from nuclear reactors to aircraft to deep-sea equipment, engineering to electronics to cyber security, intelligence to chaplaincy to law.

You may find similar jobs in the civilian sector, but you won’t find the same level of responsibility, camaraderie, benefits and purpose that are present in the Navy. Here, you’ll be part of something bigger than yourself. And if you’re Officer material, you’ll take the advantages and the honor with you for a lifetime.
