Translate Your (25C) Communications Skills

With a degree, you can translate your experience as a Communications-Electronics Operator (25C) into a managerial career . You already have the know-how and the experience, but in order to work in management, you need to have a degree in hand. The Army can help you get this degree because as a soldier you're eligible for a number of education benefits.
From 25C to a Civilian Communications Manager
If you have experience designing communications systems and helping to integrate new systems from your time in the service, many opportunities are open to you in the civilian world . In managerial positions you can coordinate those who complete installations and provide follow up and trainings for your staff. With the right experience and education, you could earn as much as $60,000 a year as a civilian communications manager.

From the Military to the Civilian Work Force
The first thing you need to do is begin working toward your bachelor's degree. You can take classes online, from wherever you happen to be stationed. Getting a degree in business, engineering, or management can help you compete for communications management jobs. Your degree rounds out your real-world experience and prepares you for the job market. Jobs in this field are expected to grow 23% through 2008, making opportunities rich.

Programs That Can Help You
You can use your tuition benefits to complete the degree you need for a management position. The Army pays your tuition through the Tuition Assistance Program, or you can use your GI Bill if you have already left the service or plan on leaving soon. If you are still in the service, remember that each class you take also helps you with the promotions boards, so kill two birds with one stone and get to work.
