Air Force Enlisted Job Categories

General Category

By

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.

Below are the Air Force enlisted jobs which fall into the "General" aptitude area.
