NotAnSES To the OP: I went in Open General. I got a really good job (3E9X1) Emergency Management. I love my job. It offers alot on the outside. The AF will do great things for you, if you are willing to put in the time and make sacrifices.

150mphzetec 4 years, 6 years, there really is no difference once you are actually in an doing it. If getting a guarantee means putting in more time then do it. Otherwise go to the Navy recruiter

If you want a guaranteed job, you need to go Army/Marines. At least that's how it was when I signed.

That's not correct. It depends in what AFSC is chosen and the manning in those fields.

To the OP: DO NOT GO IN OPEN GENERAL.

I went in in 2003 guaranteed Combat Control. Prior to that I had a guarantee as a crew chief on F-16s. If your recruiter is worth a lick she can get you a guaranteed contract.

I have thought about going army atc or air force reserves loadmaster. Both garunteed
If this is your attitude now, you're not going to even make it though BMT. Even though that's been sissified for all the complainers. Start to realize that nothing in the military is guaranteed. So be prepared for a nice eye awakening. But be lucky you're even in the DEP program. You do realize that the recruiting quota is so small now and it's a VERY selective process now a days right? Start appreciating that you even made it this far.

TheGlassMaker Jobs are guaranteed in the Navy too.

blackcervini About the only jobs that you can get a guarantee for are critical short like Combat Control and Pararescue. Combat Control would get you the Air Traffic Control career you mentioned, not to mention a mean bonus in the process. Did it for 11 years.
