Abstract:

The 703X0 Reprographics career ladder is somewhat heterogeneous, with jobs differing on the basis of the reprographics functions performed. These functions are duplicating, printing, binding, photolithography, and micrographics. Typically, individuals reported performing a job concentrating in one or more of these areas. There was no reliable breakout of job groups according to the previous AFSC held by the individuals. The micrographics function tended to be the most specialized, with only one group performing it to a significant degree. This group concentrated on the micrographics function to the exclusion of the other reprographics duties. Considering that the micrographics function is in a recent introduction into the career field, combined with the fact that all members of this highly specialized group had either 3- or 5-skill levels, this is not surprising. It is expected that the micrographics function will probably fuse more completely with the other reprographics functions with time. Graduates from the Reprographics jobs, as indicated by the fact that the members did not group together based on task performance. Over 70 of the graduates found their job interesting and their talents and training well utilized however, only 40 of the group indicate reenlistment intentions. One possible reason for this could be the fact that many members are in their first enlistment.
