    Are there any jobs that you CAN NOT choose in service academies?

    If you are asking if there are certain military occupations that you are ineligible for after becoming an officer, then yes. As an ensign or 2LT, you are a midlevel officer and the military will tell you what assignment you will be sent to.

    What "job" are you talking about that you are interested in?

    As AROTC-dad mentioned, you need to be a bit more specific, but yes, there are certain branches and jobs that you can't be assigned to right out of the Academy.

    For instance, in the Army you can't branch to Special Forces, Civil Affairs and Psy-Ops straight out of the academy, there are other specific assignment as well that can't be assigned. I imagine there are the same restrictions for the other services as well.
