Navy opportunities provide skills that can set you up for life – in and out of uniform. And along the way, you’ll have the chance to make your own distinct mark on the world.
What’s it like being a woman in today’s Navy? Challenging. Exciting. Rewarding. But above all, it’s incredibly empowering. That’s because the responsibilities are significant. The respect is well-earned. The lifestyle is liberating. And the chance to push limits personally and professionally is an equal opportunity for women and men alike.
Take on a Role That Defies Convention
The notion of “man’s work” is redefined in the Navy. Stereotypes are overridden by determination, by proven capabilities, and by a shared appreciation for work that’s driven by hands-on skills and adrenaline. Here, a woman’s place is definitely in on the action. And women who seek to pursue what some may consider male-dominated roles are not only welcome, they’re wanted – in any of dozens of dynamic fields.
Train to become anything from an Electronics Technician who knows the way around a nuclear propulsion power plant to a Naval Reactors Engineer who helps design them. Work with advanced weapons systems on state-of-the-art ships, or lead security details anywhere in the world. Launch a cutting-edge career in the field of aviation as an Aircrewman, an Aviation Structural Mechanic or one of several other specialties in this area. It’s all possible.
