Very much a product of the attitudes of the 60s and 70s, but even then it ignored the reality of things like brief military service.

My father, in Traveller terms, served a term in the Navy, THEN went to University, THEN spent a failed term in the Survey Department of the Scouts, only THEN settling into what CT would think of as a Scientist (Engineers didn't get their own career path until TNE), where he stayed.

The single career conceit of CT is just that, a conceit.
We are all playing different games that happen to have the same name.
