About This Quiz

Starting with the famously grueling basic training, a career in the U.S. military is no small endeavor. The differences between military life and civilian life are plenty and significant. Housing situations on base are very different from living in your own home, and the daily schedule that the military operates on often requires odd hours from its members. However, there is a great amount of job security for those recruited, and the path to success and promotion in the military is often laid out plainly.

Beyond lifestyle choices, military members are all asked to do a wide variety of tasks, from cleaning their work places to building infrastructure to learning life-saving skills. The training that the U.S. military provides its members is invaluable and unparalleled to any civilian career. Military members find themselves with an extremely versatile set of skills and experiences, allowing them to truly understand where they belong in their career. While there are a great many sacrifices our military members and their families are asked to make, it can be a great career option for your future.

With the pros and cons of joining the military, it can be difficult to decide whether or not to join. Our quiz is a practical and easy way to help you decide to start a career in the military.
