    Talked to an airforce recruiter on saturday and he said that after i do my asvab that a Meps will go over my field request and we make the top choices together. So now I'm lost, how and who do i go to for a guarenteed job ?

    At MEPS, you will sit down with a person that will show you your scores and will also show you what jobs those scores qualify you for. They may be helpful, but seeing as this is the single most common buttfuck most recruits encounter, be very careful! If you are told something by the person showing you your job options, and it is not in writing, IT NEVER HAPPENED. The thread linked below has tons more info on the ASVAB and other "Joining The Military" issues.

    The guys at MEPS will probably show you a computer screen with the jobs you qualify for. From there, you should be able to ask questions about the jobs and make your choice. You do NOT have to decide right there! You can tell him you need to sleep on it and that you'll get back with him the next day. The guy you're talking with will most likely want you to sign and swear in before you leave, but again: you do not have to do anything.

    Remember - outside of joining the military itself, this is probably the most significant decision you will make in your life. Make sure that what you sign up for is what you want to do. Ask for a printout of the jobs you qualify for. If that isn't possible, write down the AFSC numbers for the jobs you think you might like. Then come back and we'll help you sort out the details.

    Good luck with the ASVAB! :x:

    You want a guarenteed job, go to the AF Reserves

    You can get a guaranteed job in Active Duty AF. All you have to do is ask. :dunno:
