    PURPOSE OF GUIDE

    How many Air Force ROTC cadets have put an AFSC on their job preference sheets with little to

    no previous information about the career field? Surprisingly, more than you’d think. Cadets

    might have one or two top choices, but once those are spent, they put whatever sounds

    interesting into the remaining slots. When they ultimately get selected for those unknown career

    fields, it can create a sense of uncertainty, disappointment, or even bitterness. It doesn’t have to

    be that way.

    In our several years of instructing at Detachment 730, we’ve picked up on a few things. First,

    AFROTC does a great job of producing top-notch, motivated leaders for the Air Force. Our

    program is structured to give leadership opportunities, responsibility, and personal growth for all

    those who enroll. Since our primary job in the Air Force is to be leaders, this is great news.

    Second, although we produce leaders, we don’t give cadets enough information about the jobs in

    which they’ll be leading. Primary resources have always been the Air Force website,
