ATC is no joke. I started there. STUDY your *** off. Out of those four you have the biggest chance of getting SF or ATC

Nope. Im Comm now. I didnt study in ATC (enjoyed the local casinos and "The Vandenberg") too much.

Comm is an amazing job though. I could easily do 20 in this career field

Good to know. Thank you.

I feel privileged to get all this advice from people already in. I feel really bad every time i meet someone going in with an open contract.

175 in SF?

Drex, i went to MEPS last week. According the Air Force liaison people, still photo is no longer a job you can get going in. You have to retrain into it now.

Also, for the record, "Loadmaster" is a silly name.

Tech Apps: Think of it as contract work. You dont really have a jobs, you more or less have "projects" for lack of better words

Loadmaster: Like to travel?

Still Photo: The job is what you make it. You should really be interested in photography though. If not then you may or may not learn to love it

As for the other 2, I have no experience with those careers or have had any friends in those career fields

News to me. as of 3 weeks ago we were still getting pipeline Airmen straight from tech school. Me thinks your recruiter was lying to you.

Yea from what I read you usually start at patrick working at AFTAC, but after that it can get pretty diverse, which is one of the reasons I'm interested in it.

It was the people at MEPS, not the recruiter. Could they lie to me?

Maybe they meant it's just near impossible to get? a buddy of mine put it as a job selection at MEPS just a few weeks ago.

Interesting. They printed out the list of "all the jobs in the air force" for me to choose. I didn't see photo on it. I asked them about it, and the dude said it wasn't available straight out of basic anymore.

If they lied to me, i'll be really mad.

While it was from a recruiter not MEPS, my job sheet has still photo listed and it was printed less than a week ago.

Recruiters and MEPS personnel lying? Balderdash! Blasphemy!
