Eugene - Some of the hottest skills these days are in the topics of data analytics, data visualization, data interpretation and data science. Some people specialize in these topics, but almost all roles value these skills - logistics, business, etc. So if you don't have these skills, you might want to check out these topics as they could be a differentiating factor for you.

Hi Eugene,

Thank you for your service and your question. The best way to narrow down your career direction would be to work with a mentor. An ACP Mentor would be able to work with you for the next year to help find out where your skills lie and how to best utilize them.

Alternatively, you may also reach out to advisors in our Community section on AdvisorNet (https://acp-advisornet.org/community/advisors). Here you can message advisors, narrowing it down by location and career expertise.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

Best,
Noah
