The transferability of military-provided occupational training in the post-draft era
Several studies have examined how military-provided training affects post-service employment experience, but this study is the first to investigate that relationship for young men and women who enlisted in the "all-volunteer" era that began in 1974. Using data from the National Longitudinal Survey-Youth Cohort, the authors find that the transfer of skills to civilian employment was as high for military training as for civilian training (45-50 percent), once employer-provided training is excluded from consideration. Furthermore, within two years of their return to civilian life, those who received military training had higher earnings than those who received training in the civilian sector-a finding that contrasts with the results of studies of Vietnam veterans, but agrees with the results found for veterans of World War II and the Korean Conflict.
