Meh, it's just a test. I scored a 93 and my GT is a 123...

After being in as long as I have been, those tests really dont mean much.

I bet people here don't even think I'm that smart. I post from my phone 98% of the time, don't use proper grammar, and constantly have typos because my iPhone thinks it's smart (it's not)

Scoring high on the test gives you a few advantages, such as getting ANY job u want, that doesn't require a Special School... Other than that I know some pretty sharp guys that scored badly, and even more that have scored in the 90's with ZERO fuggin common sense!

There is no perfect job in any branch of the military. If you want a complex, challenging career you have to take it.

and..

TCF hey man go fug yourself, 90% of Army retards wouldn't know what to do without me telling you how to sit down on my C17.

First of all, that's an unwarranted personal attack...

Secondly, I don't recall belittling you or your career field.

And lastly, SOF only uses your planes to get back and forth from the box...

So I HIGHLY doubt that it's "my type" of Army guys that need instructions on how to SLEEP on your plane.

And while we're on that subject, I have schooled manya' loadmasters on how to do their jobs (not saying u are one)

I have no Ill will towards anybody who serves... You really should just chill.

If u still want to fight about it, then be professional and pm me. This isn't really something that should be aired out on a public forum. It will only make the Service as a whole look bad.

Well then I guess either I forgot, or other people lied to me. Sorry. From now on I'll act like the world beating mental giant I certainly must be.

Well I apologize for going off on you

The AF doesn't even use a GT score. Along the breakdown for jobs in the AF that Reapuh was looking for his ASVAB scores are good. Like you stated all those jobs have a tech school that follows or even two anyways.

And you're right i'm not a loadmaster I actually work for a living as a crew chief.

Ammo-nothing special

Command post style job-good hrs

Intel-its Intel nuff said

Jet troop-work on aircraft engines, long hrs get dirty

At-speaks for itself

Bio-deals a lot with safety on base, chemical disposal, hearing safety near flightline

Loadmaster-basically fly around the world while getting paid to do little to no work

NDI-gold right here you could do 4 years in the AF and have tons of job opportunities...precision test equip, high value training for a rare job in the aircraft industry

Listen to N1kke....

Anything that transfers into civilian life is the way to go.

Air Traffic Control does not make nearly as much now as they used to, BTW. Their contract was recently changed up quite a bit by the Feds.

Yeah, that's how I tried to rank my list, but then again I'm not sure which jobs transfers to civilian. Here is my list, though. I'd be ecstatic to get any of the top 3.

1. Nondestructive Inspection

2. Operations Intelligence

3. Aerospace Control and Warning Systems

4. Bioenvironmental Engineering

5. Missile and Space Systems Electronic Maintenance

6. Tactical Air Control Party Specialist

7. Aerial Gunner

8. Aircraft Loadmaster

to be honest, I expected to spend my career doing electronics and was hired out of the Navy to do that. But I really was not great at it, and found later that I was really good at computers so I made that my career.

I think that getting an easily transferable type of job is helpful, but my experience is that you will get hired based more on the fact you had a decent military career (progress through ranks, no black marks on your record, honorable discharge, etc) than anything else. My stepson was a Boatswains Mate, now he repairs and refurbishes boats, but it's his demeanor and professional attitude that gets him work - things that before he joined the Navy were fairly nonexistent in his character, at least when dealing with people.

Is the ASVAB the test where you had to connect the dots?

Its somewhat similar to the SAT's, except with fewer questions in each section and more of a focus on technical as opposed to academic knowledge.

Its been a while since I took it, but best I can remember, my score was upper 80's. Would have been higher, but I screwed up the Math part of it, where you had to answer a certain number of math questions in 2-3 minutes. I had the right answers, but skipped a spot on the answer sheet and had to redo a bunch of them. Didn't matter as I got the school I wanted anyway.

I would skip both the ATC and Loadmasters. If you stay in til you retire you would be to old to be ATC. Loadmasters by the time you leave you will have a family or be burned out on traveling around the world. Also they really dont get paid great money in the real world. But it is mainly what you want to do.

NDI for serious is a rare but highly technical career. The AF gives you everything you need to succeed in the Aviation industry if you choose to get out.

Intel right now is a critically manned career which means initial signing bonus and even more if you re-up in 4-6yrs.

Now if you want to travel the world, loadmaster is the job you want, and fyi the AF never spares an expense to which 5star hotel you stay at.
