Earning an associate degree while you serve can advance both your military and civilian careers-get up to 100 promotion points for your classes while preparing for a great job after the Army. Build off of the skills you learned in your MOS or try something new. Either way, an associate degree could lead to a better career. Associate degree holders enjoy lower unemployment rates and earn about 15 percent more than those with high school diplomas alone. CNN reports that some associate-level jobs pay almost as well as bachelor's-level jobs, especially in health care, information technology, trade and business industries. Enroll in an online associate program to begin classes now, while you serve.
