There is no guarantee one will receive the training of their choice once they enlist in the military. The training received also is not guaranteed to be applicable directly toward a civilian career.

Depending on the branch, there are indeed guarantees one will receive the training of their choice. The Army offers a guaranteed training of choice enlistment option. From discussions with other branches during my three year stint as an Army recruiter, most offer similar options.

My ex-brother in law went into the ARmy to be a medic. He was in meat inspection and now, after finishing up with the military is a recruiter for some fortune 500 company. So you won't always get what you want. But again, you said most, not all so that's just my story.

There are some stipulations. The main one being if you fail the training you choose, you can be reassigned based on the needs of the Army.
