      Being a mechanical engineer for the Air Force has a lot of potential. You could perform structural and mechanical tests with the Air Force Research Laboratory, work in the System Program Office with different airframes around the world, or work directly with the planes where your office is in or adjacent to the hangars, which is what I do. I get to board the aircraft whenever I want to investigate repairs and look directly at the damage I need to design a repair for. It's a new challenge every day, with different aircraft.


      Work can sometimes be slow, with some occasional downtime between repairs. A good and bad thing is that there is a lot of training required as well. Some seem redundant, yet other training opportunities can be quite good.

        Business Outlook


        The Air Force has a lot of opportunities in a multitude of career fields with the every chance to further a persons education, personal and professional development. I have been able to live in duty stations throughout the globe and never paid a dime out of my pocket to relocate. The training you receive is 'Excellent' and is needed in order to meet the Air Force Mission.


        Even though you get the opportunity to live in multiple locations throughout the globe, you don't always get a say in where you end up. Some career fields don't offer as much flexibility to progress with out making rank. Promotion is based on, how well you study and take a test instead of how hard you work or even if you are fulfilling duties beyond your current rank and duties.

      Executive Administrative Assistant

      Hello, Please be kind. I’m so out of the loop and beat down, and may have posted this in a wrong group. I have been at my job 11 years, applied for a new job out of my organization. Posting closed last Mon. Tues at 4:40 they emailed to request an interview and wanted my top days/times for upcoming M-W. I responded with pref Wed afternoon as 1, Tues early or late as 2 or 3. I have not heard a response. I have to figure out an excuse to go on Tues to leave work. Is this normal to keep hanging on?

      hi , I’m new here 👋 I have an interview coming up and I’m struggling on how to answer the “tell me about yourself statement question.” I personally don’t like to talk about myself and have the tendency to start talking about me but then I end up talking about what’s on my resume 🤦‍♀️ any advice ?


      Alexa Rivera

      Hi, I applied for a job at a small business warehouse and I had a phone call with them about 1.5 weeks ago. It went well and a few days after, I got an email asking me when can I do an in person interview. I replied the following business day and gave them three dates. However, it’s been 4 days and they have not responded back to my email response. I even sent them a follow up and nothing. What does this mean and what should I do?
