Military Entrance Processing Command (DOD), North Chicago, IL.
This copiously illustrated guide is a single reference source for the diverse employment and training opportunities in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard. It is divided into two major sections. The first section contains descriptions of 134 enlisted military occupations and provides information regarding the aptitudes needed for each. Students who have taken the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) can use their scores to determine their chances of qualifying for these military occupations. Enlisted military occupations are categorized under human services; media and public affairs; health care; engineering, science, and technical; administrative; service; vehicle and machinery mechanic; electronic and electrical equipment repair; construction; machine operator and precision work; transportation and material handling; and combat specialty. The second section was added to the guide in response to requests from educators who used the 1985 edition that contained only the first section. The new section contains descriptions of 71 military officer occupations. Military officer occupations are categorized under executive, administrative, and managerial; human services; media and public affairs; health diagnosing and treating practitioner; health care; engineering, science, and technical; service; transportation; and combat specialty. Four indexes are provided: civilian counterparts to the 205 military occupations listed in numerical order by Dictionary of Occupational Titles (DOT) number; civilian counterparts grouped under corresponding military occupations and listed according to their DOT codes; the 134 military enlisted occupations groups under the 4 ASVAB occupational groups; and an alphabetical title index of occupational titles that represent military occupations described in the guide.
