Abstract:

This report documents one of the primary tasks of a research project titled Facilitating AC-to-RC and AC-to-Civilian Transitions. The overall purpose of the project was to assess the level and importance of the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to perform in Army military occupational specialties MOSs to develop improved crosswalks between military and civilian occupations and to make other recommendations to improve the transition process for soldiers leaving the Regular Army. In this report, we discuss the results of occupation surveys administered to soldiers in ten of the most populous Army MOSs, including the knowledge, skills, and abilities rated most important by soldiers in those MOSs, the best-matching civilian occupations, and comparisons with other military-civilian occupation crosswalks.
