The purpose of this thesis was to investigate the factors affecting the career intentions of junior unrestricted line (URL) naval officers. Data were taken from the 1992 DoD Survey officer and Enlisted Personnel and their Spouses and were matched with the 1996 Active Duty Military Master File by the Defense Manpower Data Center. The sample was restricted to Navy URL officers in pay grades 01-03, within their minimum service requirement. The data were divided into three sets: single male officers, married male officers, and female officers. A conceptual model was developed which grouped explanatory variables of career intentions into three broad categories: personal, internal work related, and external work related. A multivariate logistic model was estimated for each data set to determine the relative importance of these variables on an individual's intent to make the Navy a career. Results indicated that the factors influencing career intentions differ between male and female officers and married and single officers
