Vacuums in Space Force Yearn to be Filled
Space Force is the newest wing of America’s armed forces. Presently Space Force needs personnel in a variety of positions. If you’re passionate about solving the tough problems of space, if you want to protect and defend life as we know it, and protect that life well into the future, Space Force is looking for you.
Still, you are going to have to apply. In this writing we will explore how that can be done in 2021, and what application to Space Force will look like in the future. Here’s what you need to know:
- Space Force Application Goes Through the Air Force Presently
- Separate Processes For Joining Space Force Are Being Developed
- Officer and Enlisted Positions in a Diversity of Fields Are Available
Space Force Application Goes Through the Air Force Presently
If you want to start the process today, just follow this link to the present application page of the Air Force. You’ll be given the choice to apply for varying positions designed for officers as well as enlisted personnel. You’ll be prompted to start an “account” with an email address and a password, and then from there both opportunities and qualifications will be presented for you to examine.
If you’re already in the military, depending on time “in grade” and “in service”, you can simply apply to transfer from the Air Force. However, there are no options if you’re in The Guard or Reserve; Space Force isn’t selecting applicants from that group.
Separate Processes For Joining Space Force Are Being Developed
Though the only way to apply for Space Force presently is through the Air Force, there will soon be a specific webpage where applications can be processed, and management will soon be more official overall. Presently, if you’ve never been in the military, you can apply for Space Force through the Air Force website; you’ll need baseline military qualifications, and you’ll receive training.
Officer and Enlisted Positions in a Diversity of Fields Are Available
Officer positions in Space Force include:
- Cyberspace Operations Officers
- Acquisitions Managers
- Space Operations Officers
- Cyber Warfare Officers
For enlisted personnel, opportunities include:
- Space Systems Operations
- Cable and Antenna Systems
- Intelligence Analysts
- “Client systems”
- Cyber Systems Operations
- Cyber Surety
- Computer Systems Programming
- Cyber Transport Systems
Varying test scores will play a part in determining your candidacy for officers’ positions. It is possible to become an officer even if you apply to be an enlisted man, if performance and skill sets recommend such a promotion. If you’ve never been in the military before, there’s a high likelihood you’ll have to complete time in an enlisted capacity before opportunities for advancement in rank are available. Since Space Force is relatively new, expect a variety of such opportunities. In other branches, there will be more associated competition.
Solidifying Space Force
China recently launched a hypersonic missile that cruised around the whole world before deploying a glider that hit a target in China. That’s a big deal, and it’s only the tip of the technological iceberg. There will be an exponential increase in space-faring issues related to global economic goals, and orchestrated through multiple militaries in multiple countries.
Space Force is strategically key, and will play a central part in protecting America as the world changes. If interested, you can currently apply as an enlisted man or officer through the web portal on the Air Force page linked in this article.
Soon Space Force will have their own unique application processes. Right now, there’s a lot of opportunity for ambitious and driven individuals who want to stake a claim in America’s newest division of the armed forces.
