Resume Place: To Choose the Best College Majors, Veterans Need Early Career Counseling, Data Shows
Date:7/28/2014

rk," says Troutman. A college career counselor can translate military occupational jargon into language that will make sense to civilian hiring managers and human resources departments.

As they begin their higher education, veterans should also find out if they can “CLEP” any of their military training or experience, which gives them a head start on the course credits they will need for graduation.

Step 2: Take Assessments for Aptitudes and Interests
Veteran students can ask their college career counselors for testing to help them understand their own personality types, interests and skills. Assessments such as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and the Strong Interest Inventory are commonly given to college students. “Assessments give you information about yourself that can help you make a career decision -- but they don't make that decision for you," says Andrews.

Step 3: Explore Other Personal and Labor-Market Factors in the Career Decision
Veteran students should also look at their own talents, skills, experience and interests – beyond their military service – to see what careers might be a good match. College career counselors can help veteran students research the marketability of various majors and the projected demand for the corresponding career fields. "While earning potential is a critical consideration for most college students, it shouldn't be the sole basis for a career choice," says Troutman.

Step 4: Choose a College Major As Soon As Possible
Next, student veterans should work with their counselors – as early in their post-secondary education as possible – to settle on the optimal college major, given their choice of careers. The earlier veterans elect a major, the sooner they’ll be able to graduate and get on
