Part I: Before Research
1. Have you considered the military as an option after graduation?
No. I haven’t really looked through the military and the jobs they offer.
2. If yes, what branch are you thinking about?
If no, why have you not considered the military?
I just don’t think the military is for me. I would rather go to college and get right
into my career. But I have thought about it a little bit just because of my
brother.
3. From what sources have you built your opinion on military careers? (Family, friends, TV shows,
news, etc.)
My brother is going to the Marines in January and I have seen him start training
and get ready for it. I am very proud of him. I just don’t think it is for me.

Part III – Response
4. Which of the 3 military jobs would you like best? Why?
I would probably say Radiation Specialist because I like the medical field and I
have thought of being a radiation specialist before, just not in the military.
5. Did you know that this job existed before? Or, are you surprised that it exists?
Yes I knew this job existed.
6. Now that you’ve looked into this career, do you think it might be a good option for you? Weigh
the pros and cons of military service, government benefits, and being able to transition into a
civilian career with the other paths to the career (usually college).
Um it could be but I don’t think the military is for me. I like at the pros it gives
and the respect it gives you but I don’t think I would go into the military.
