Hello I have been given the Mechanical aptitude area job despite of having qualified for the computer programming job (which i had to take the edpt test and obtained an above-passing score) and i have a few questions Wasn’t the computer programming job and the technical applications specialist considered a guaranteed job? If i have high ASVAB scores, will i have the jobs that i list at BTC? If you could take the time of answering those question i would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance
Those jobs aren't guaranteed just because you qualify for them. No job is. You'll only be guaranteed a job if it is written in your contract. When I came in, if you had a total ASVAB score of over 92 or 93 then you were "Exceptionally Well Qualified" and had a better chance of getting a guaranteed job. Not sure if that program still exists today, ask your recruiter about it.
A higher ASVAB score gets you more job options, but doesn't necessarily give you a better chance of getting you the job you want as far as I know. But if you have a 90 and someone else has a 40, then would probably put the 40 person in a job that has a lower requirement, and put you in the higher one. At least that's what I would do. But that would probably make too much sense so that may not be how it works at all.
