    USAF career changing - magic list????

    Advertisements
    My husband is looking to change careers and go from reserve to active duty. He spoke with a recruiter who said he couldn't tell him what his options were until some magic list comes out in August. Does anyone know what this is? I feel like an idiot not knowing things, but can anyone explain this process to me???
    Thank you!!

    The list of critically manned career fields? AD in overmanned fields have until early July to cross-train then AD in overmanned fields would be volun-told to switch careers until the number of people that need to leave the field are switched so that could be what he's talking about

    Maybe that's it. Like an available job listing? Or what's open after others have been switched? That sounds logical. Thank you!

    I agree it's probably just openings for jobs based on rank. Their are fields that are constantly critically manned, you could look those up if you want some idea before August of what might be available.

    Oh and my DH went from reserves to AD, so if you have questions or want to vent about the process, let me know!

    I would love that! Thank you! I'm so lost in this whole process. Where can I look up the critically manned jobs?
