    So I came across the numbers for non-rated jobs for 2016 and it seems they are hitting Missiles, Cyber and Intel pretty hard.

    Not having met the requirements for Cyber, Missiles is the only other job I wouldn't prefer. I am really qualified for the business style jobs (Contracting, Fin Man, Acquisitions.. Etc.) and rated them the highest.

    Does anyone know how close your major, and classes you take, correlate with the job you receive?

    How did you get the numbers? Give me the details.

    I know for technical majors it usually correlates to the job. Comp Sci goes to Cyber. Engineering goes to Engineers. When it comes to non-technical majors it's a wildcard. The only correlation I see from non-tech is that language majors usually get intel or OSI. I've seen poly sci cadets get missileer, criminology cadets get contracting, biology cadets get acquisitions, etc. The crim major had no business credits so that was interesting. Usually the non-techs did not expect to get the jobs they got and most of them did not perform well at Field Training.

    Well I am a double Business major so I am pushing for something that correlates.

    I have some numbers but I'm not sure if its validity. Let's just say, from what I see, Acquisitions, Missiles, Cyber, and Intel makes up almost half the AFSC slots.

    Nothing out of the usual compared to previous years. If you want contracting/acquisitions most likely you will get it.

    What exactly is a double Business major? I've never heard of that.

    I wasn't familiar with the term either (and I have a graduate degree in business), but this is from the University of Texas business department website:

    Double Business Majors:
    The College of Business allows select Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) programs to be combined resulting in a degree with a double major. If all specified requirements are completed at the same time, one diploma recognizing both business majors will be awarded. These double major programs are constructed for business students only and prohibit participating in certificate programs and the Fast Track Programs in Business. The double majors available to students in the College of Business are:

    • BBA in Accounting and Finance
    • BBA in Accounting and Information Systems
    • BBA in Economics and Finance
    • BBA in Management and Marketing

    In all reality it is luck of the draw, your stats, cc's rank you, then assignments go down the list of rank to job ratios which depends on so many things, # of openings etc. We had multiple different majors go missiles. In the end just work hard, which gives you a high ranking, which in turn - should - get you the job you want. But in today's AF I wouldn't count on your major deciding your job.
