The Air Force offers two enlistment options for new recruits. The first one is "guaranteed job," where the applicant has a specific job guaranteed in their enlistment contract. The second option is the "guaranteed aptitude area," where applicants are guaranteed to receive a job in a specific aptitude area, but won't actually find out what the job is until they are in basic training.
