  3. Korean Cryptologic Language Analyst - what should I do to set myself up for civilian life?


I’m currently in the US armed forces. I am studying Korean at the Defense Language Institute. Once I graduate I’ll be a linguist in the military translating foreign intelligence in Korean. when I leave the military I will have fluency in Korean, job experience, and a top secret security clearance. Most CLAs end up leaving after the first enlistment and work for NSA/CIA/FBI etc. I’m considering these options, but what else is there for someone with this background? Following DLI i want to immediately start taking college classes so when I leave the military I’ll have a degree. I’m leaning towards CS but I also want something that’s relevant to my language and work experience? What are some other job opportunities I could have after leaving the military? Thank you.
