Abstract:

The current post-enlistment assignment process used by the Air Force permits recruits to indicate three job preferences. This report focused on this process of indicating a preference, and attempted to answer the question of whether indicating an Air Force specialty AFS preference and subsequently being assigned to the job preference selected, effected job satisfaction. Subjects were first term airmen females 4,156, males 15,000 who had completed, during their first tour of duty, a job inventory which contained three items related to job satisfaction. A series of analyses were performed in order to see if the preference selection process was related to the three measures of job satisfaction.
