Abstract : This report is based on data collected from 1,683 AFSC 251X0 respondents: 648 Observers, 972 Forecasters, 41 9-skill level members, and 22 CEM code personnel. This represents 55 percent of the total assigned population. Survey data show a uniquely diverse and highly technical career ladder structure, with Observer and Forecaster as the 2 major jobs, 5 clusters of jobs performed by smaller numbers of respondents, and 12 independent technical jobs distinguished by the time spent performing specific technical tasks. Weather personnel progress from performing weather observing functions during their first enlistment (3- and 5-skill level) to more analytical forecasting and supervisory functions at the 7-skill level. Nine-skill level and CEM personnel perform both supervisory and career ladder management tasks.
