    ...not exactly. It's that career counselor's job to try to get you to reenlist. That means that he's going to put down whatever it is that you want to do, to make reenlisting look like the better option.

    I guess career counselors must be different in the Air Force, cuz never once did one try to get me to reenlist. They explained my options, but that was about it. And I didn't feel that it made reenlisting look like the better option. It just showed that the military has a lot of awesome benefits which, really, can't be argued.

    Probably because with the exception of a very small window of time a few years ago, the AF has had no trouble getting recruits since the inception of the all volunteer military.

    I don't think this is why. Even when the Navy is downsizing, career counselors are the exact same way.

    I dunno, I guess the Navy would rather kick people out than have people leave on their own.

    So someone discharged say in Jan 2012 (well over a year ago) is not guarenteed a job? Swell.

    That is correct...as far as I know. I guess they figure that someone who received an honorable within the last 12 months hasn't had time to go out and get in too much trouble, or haven't lost that military "discipline". Not sure on the reasoning. I guess they had to draw a line somewhere. Otherwise, they'd have to create a lot of slots to hire all honorably discharged veterans from forever.

    I remember when every AF squadron had a career advisor (an additional duty -- not a billet). Then they did away with them and we had a wing-level career assistance something-or-other. My last four years of AD were in a training squadron on a Navy base -- so I don't know; does the AF even still have career advisors?

    The unit career advisor (SNCO) maintained a green folder on first term Airmen. This was a carryover of the unit reenlistment NCO duty the Army has.
    Mandatory annual counseling on benefits, etc. Also your POC for retraining, reenlistment questions. AF did away with the additional duty as it is the duty of all supervisors. Decade or two later (after supervisors were failing in this responsibility) the CAA position, along with FTAC, NCOPE, SNCOPE, etc. were created.

    I went through their normal hiring process. Seemed quicker than the hire veterans one. I've been with them for 2 months now, not bad just be prepared to dumb yourself down a bit.
