What this job is about
Chances are that when you were a kid, you developed your own secret code so you could pass notes to your friends in class. Who knew that avoiding math questions could actually score you an amazing job as a naval communications officer? Given the task of using codes, radio, written communication and a bevy of other sources, naval communications officers relay the right information to the right people – yes, sometimes even in code. They help higher-ups in the decision process, making sure all parties have the latest information, which means you have to have great attention to detail and (obviously) good communication skills.
