The Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Services (DANTES) offers service members free career counseling through the Kuder Journey online counseling service.

As long as you activate your free account while active duty, the free counseling services will never expire.

The counseling program involves completing a short assessment, it takes about 20 minutes, to see what job fields and college degrees best fit your interests. After completing an assessment, you will receive tailored career guidance and occupation search aids. These can then be used to narrow down a long list of occupational fields to those right for you.
