      I am curious about the reserve side of AFOSI enlisted and officer? Anyone know any information? I would apply as a civilian on this announcement but I would honestly rather do enlisted/ officer OSI reserve? What is the possibility of getting that? Also you said you left state was it DSS?

      • Nevermind this annoucement seems to be closed but still have the above questions.

          I don't know much about the enlisted/ officer side of the biz, sorry. And yes, I am leaving State but not DSS. Although DSS is a job I would love I haven't made the cut on the list. Ironically, I think this, OSI, is a list which is harder to make.

                For officer I believe you can apply for osi with your OTS package but all I gotta say is good luck with that. OSI is the second most requested field (aside from pilot) so you will be competing for very few slots against students graduating from the AF Academy and students who are in ROTC who are getting recommended by detco's.

                Civilian positions seems to open 2 times a year, PAQ and DEV. Same job, different funding source.

                All your answers can be answered here

                http://www.osi.af.mil/questions/topic.asp?id=1142

                Or email HR. They are great at responding if you have a question you cant find on the site.

                My opinion, if you are in the af now, enlisted would be easiest route. To get an officer slot/OTS and THEN get picked up with osi... well there is something on your resume that is obviously outstanding and you should therefore have no problem getting a civilian slot. (Ie an officer slot is very difficult to get, then compounded by trying for osi). Oh but for civilian positions you almost have to have a masters degree... Or be a badass in a foreign language. At my interview everyone had a RELEVANT masters degree aside for a guy who could speak Korean fluently and was in IT security.
                At this point I am looking into air force reserve Security Forces Officer or Intel too or Guard (many options). So I can keep up and pursuing my FED LE applications.

                      Does anybody know anybody who made it into the AFOSI as an officer? I'm debating on contacting a recruiter, but I don't want to waste their time if it's not very likely that anything will come from it.

                        Not going to say that you are wasting your time but I will tell you that I tried to go that route and it is extremely COMPETITIVE!!! The recruiter told me to put it as my number one choice but the likelihood of getting was slim to none because it is the number one most requested job choice.

                        Also from speaking with some of the AFOSI management they usually reserve the officer spots for the enlisted agents who want to go officer.

                        So again not telling not to do it, just the information I got from various sources were that u will mostly likely get out in a job where the need a 2nd LT and not so much where u wanna go.
