Being an Air Force officer?
what college degrees are they looking for mainly ? also; what's the benefits officer vs enlisted. thanks
- Benefits are doing not a lot of work for a lot of money. And going through a "rigorous" boot camp (lol)02
- Darkness must not be an officer. Anyway, you can major in music, history, mechanical engineering, or anything else... as long as you get a four year degree, you can become an officer. Yes, if you do graduate with a technical degree, you'll have a better chance of getting accepted, but you still definitely have a shot if you graduate with any other degree.
Benefits: wider range of careers from which to choose, higher pay, more leadership/less followship, you're in charge most of the time, and... you can fly!00
- Officers get better pay and have more administrative/white collar type jobs. Only officers can be pilots.
Enlistees have the blue collar type jobs and pay not as good.
Degrees... to be quite honest the Air Force is so full right now it's very difficult to get in as an officer. I know many people with Bachelors of Science that had to go enlisted because the wait time to get a slot in Officer Training School was abysmally long. Even know of one guy who has a MASTER'S degree and was told to either wait over a year to get in as an officer, or go enlisted within a month or so. He went enlisted.
Engineering is always a good bet as far as degrees go. Don't even try to go officer with a vague, useless degree in something like history.
Language degrees won't help much either... the only language related job you can get guaranteed when you first get in is that of a linguist (and not every recruiter will help you get it guaranteed on your contract) and that job is only for enlisted, not officer. There's a chance a first-time officer may get slotted as a linguist, but it's not something they'll ever guarantee on the initial contract.00
