    So Ive been in a little over 4 years in the AF. I work AGE and Ive hated every second of it. I want to crosstrain into something to do with computers, but the way it looks with all the manning and budget cuts the AF is doing I wont be able to crosstrain into something worth a damn.

    Im thinking about getting out and going reserve or guard when I my enlistment ends in about 2 and a half years. My friend just did this and he said he got to pick any job he wanted that he scored high enough for on his asvab.

    Now my question is. If i were to go guard or reserve and pick the job I want. Is there a chance I could go back to active duty with the new job?

    Assuming you qualified in your new AFSC, you could pick either your AGE or your new specialty when you go back to active duty. As far as the Air Force is concerned, you would be fully qualified in both.
