Description: This passage is focused on how to find, pick up a job that suits you the most in the Air Force, the salary you get when you get a job in the Air Force.
The jobs you get in the Air Force depend on how well you do in different category, in my case was mechanical. If you do well in this area, you don’t have to choose the job, you can go with whatever you have on your list which are available to you, and if you get some jobs that you are not fond of, you can cross train. If you are in four-year-enlistment, you can cross train in the third year, if you are in six years, you have to wait for a little longer, so it depends on what you want to do and how long you will be in.
So you have to be careful when you choose your job, you have to get much information, because it is important to enjoy what you are doing. For my case, I went through each line on their website, and they have different jobs that you can choose, from religious jobs to film, type jobs for the radio station, Heather broadcasting, even electrical plumber, HVAC for heating and cooling and security forces as well. You need to make sure you get a high score on the ASVAB.
They will get your result and print it out, then they will tell you what jobs you can choose to do. The better you are, the more options you have, but you don’t always have to choose what you do best in.
Some jobs are not available, and they will be hard to get, that’s why people end up waiting for a year in the debt program or even longer, so sometimes you can take the job available to you at present. But either way you will get paid, because you are on a salary.
If you are away from your spouse, you will get 250 for that, you will get 350 for your food allowance, then you get BAH for you housing whether you decide to live on or off base depending on the area. And you will get your Airmen’s pay, from E-1 to E-9 depending on how long you have been on each rank.
If you look at the chart on Google, it will explain to you how much you are getting paid according to the rank and regardless of the job. And the job will give you a location or an actual base, whether it is out of the State or in a particular State near your family.
You are not going to get fired from your job, even if you make mistakes, because you are in the contract and you are going to be doing what you want to do. Make sure you are happy with it.
