Work in the Navy--A Description of Navy Officer and Enlisted Occupations. Technical Report No. 923.
McDermott, Michael N.; And Others
The manual contains career guidance materials describing occupations and career development opportunities in the Navy. The materials were developed for integration into the Oregon Career Information System, a career education program utilizing both computerized and manual information systems. The report includes a discussion of the general work of the Navy, its size and organization, work environment, hiring practices, pay, training and education, and a comparison of Navy occupations with those listed in the Oregon Career Information System. The bulk of the document contains descriptions of each enlisted occupation or "rating" and each officer category and specialty. The following detailed information is provided for 70 Navy enlisted occupations: nature of the job, working conditions, qualifications, training provided by the Navy, Navy employment opportunity, and additional information sources (page number references within the document). The same categories of information, except for Navy training, are presented for 60 officer occupations. (Author/MS)
