I am graduating from graduate school in June, and I am trying to figure out what I want to do with my life. My field is criminology and investigation, and I currently work for the federal government as a criminal analyst, but I don't think that is what I want do forever. In fact, I know it is not and I have no idea what I want to do as a career.
So I looked into the Military and I qualify for the Direct Commission Officer programs in intelligence because of my Master's degree and work experience. I am applying to be a Navy Reserves Intelligence Officer (Active duty isn't accepting since the military is downsizing, I want the experience and the training, plus they will allow me to learn a foreign language which will present new opportunities and hopefully dictate a future direction for me).
So here is my question, I am writing a personal statement and I am wondering what topics I need to make sure I talk about. Leadership is an obvious one, but I figured I could get some good advice from you all. Let me know what you think. I appreciate all input.
Edit: The main premise is "why do I want to join the navy and why should the navy accept me"
