    So I finished everything at MEPS today except for a job. I was going for 21T, Technical Engineer, but everything filled up 10 minutes before I went to see the career counselor.

    I made an 86 on the ASVAB so pretty much im told I qualify for any enlistment job.

    Im in college for architecture so like I dont know really what to do. Anyone got any advice for what job possibly to do?

    Screw them, tell them you won't sign until they give you what you want.

    do something that relates in someway to what you want to do after you get out of the military. that way you have some experience and something good to put on your resume

    Yep just tell them if they don't give you the job that you want that you are walking away, openings tend to magically appear when you do this. If you have your ASVAB score breakdown look for line ST and if it is 95 or higher you are qualified, that's the only score that matters for that MOS.

    List your hobbies, what you want to do in your life outside of career, and your goals from serving in the military.

    I tried to tell them I wouldnt join and they said they cant do anything becuase its to full.


    my ST is 122. I know im qualified thats not the problem. Ive told them I wont join without the job and they told me that they want me to join but they dont have room. My recruiter spent an hour on the phone calling whoever they call about it without luck.


    Ive been looking at maybe being a diver. Looks cool seems like an OK job to do. Pretty much if I cant get the job I want ill look for something thats fun to do. Dont really wanna do any infantry or anything like that so yeah...

    I know people will fail out more than likely. Ive been told though that there wont be an opening till next year or some mess like that. Im going back to see my recruiter tomarrow and he told me hed see what he can do.

    If thought I cant get it I need to find something else to do.

    You're an idiot. This has nothing to do with getting anything in writing. Its a matter of the army wont gimmie the job I want unless I wanna wait 6-8 months until the job MAYBE comes avalaible again.


    Furthermore the only thing I need in writing I already have and thats my promotion to E-3 if I do indeed join.

    Im going in a few hours. I went thought the website and looked at other stuff and found some I actually might like alittle more so ill see how it goes. Im shooting for my first choice but if they just absolutly wont let me have in a reasonable time frame I got some 2nd choices that are just as good.

    All you need is two years of high school math (including algebra) and one year of high school science. They won't even look at your ST score. http://usmilitary.about.com/library/milinfo/arjobs/bl21t.htm


    VERY few candidates that try for Diver get the job.
