This study investigated the situations and trends towards second careers and employment opportunities of military officers in the Taiwanese armed forces, following their retirement. The research issues were pursued by highlighting the problems of officers retiring at the middle-top ranks of major, It. colonel and colonel in Taiwan. This research has attempted not only to explore quantitatively and qualitatively the second career development of retired military officers (assessing job satisfaction and identifying employment problems), but also to see whether the experiences and perceptions of retired military officers in this field research generate insights which may contribute to managerial, sociological, or even military thinking, and be beneficial both to Taiwan and to other countries. This research explored a body of empirical data dealing with officers' training and development for a second career based on a questionnaire survey of retired officers. Two broad lines of analysis of training and development were pursued: (l) impact of actual career experiences, and (2) determinants for transition to civilian work. Of the factors relating to career experience, the officers' perceptions of the utilization of their skills and experiences and the transferability of their learning skills to civilian employment were investigated.
