Your ASVAB scores determine what jobs you will qualify for in the military. But before you embarrass yourself in front of active duty service members, know that a job in the Army and the Marine Corps is called an MOS, which is an acronym for Military Occupational Specialty. In the Air Force, jobs are called AFSC – Air Force Specialty Code. In the Navy they are known as an NEC - Navy Enlisted Classification and the Coast Guard, jobs are called ratings, or rate for short.
“If you know what you want to do in the military, then studying and taking practices tests is even more important. If you miss the required minimum test score in the field of your choice you may be slotted in for a job you don’t care for once you join,” said Kris Michaelson, Director of Content from Peterson’s Test Prep, a leading test prep provider.
