I'm in the process of enlisting into the Army, have taken the asvab and passed the physical. All that's next is landing an MOS.
I originally got interested in the Army because I wanted to work in 46Q Public Affairs or 25V Combat Documentation. These both being near impossible to get an open slot in, I have expanded my wish list to include 35M, 35F, and 35G.
I am set to take the DLAB in the next few days, and am scared as hell!
Looking into it more, I am a little bit confused about the language requirements of the 35 series. I know 35P is a linguist job. But what about 35m, 35f and 35g? Do these jobs really require a foreign language? I had read that the language requirement was suspended for 35m. And honestly, I'm not sure how language would play into 35f and g. Is it possible to do the assigned work of these job without a foreign language?
At the moment, is DLI and a passing DLAB required for all of these specialities?
I've been stressed out, wanting to sign already. My recruiters are finally working with me in trying to find the jobs I want(after suggesting jobs like Food Service Specialist and Human Resources). But there's so many obstacles in landing these jobs. Clearances, tests, etc.
I could really use any suggestions for different MOS' to expand my search a bit, in case my intel choices fall through.
I'm looking for a specialty that is not combat arms, but affords me the chance to be in the field a bit. All my jobs on my wish list involve going out, gathering information, making reports, and recording info. Is there a suitable MOS that I'm missing?
I know there's plenty of sites with job descriptions, but I like hearing from real people that know the real world application of the specialties available in the Army.
