Civilian Job Suggestions:

Software Developer – Software developers need to love coding. You can't love the idea of coding, nor can you simply tolerate the process: programmers spend hours in front of a screen staring at innumerable lines of code, so if you don't have a passion for it, or an addiction, then this isn't the job for you.

Mechanical Engineer – Mechanical engineers apply knowledge of physics and materials science to design, manufacturing, and maintenance. These positions require advanced degrees and long years in higher education, but they do tend to bring in hefty paychecks.

Penetration Tester – Penetration testers poke and prod at digital systems to see where they're weak. Essentially, they're professional hackers. The job can actually be quite tedious, but if you are skilled with programming and enjoy the idea of breaking systems legitimately, this is perfect for you.
