PJ Questions

I’m a 21 year old male, looking to join the AF. I’m mostly interested in joining PJ, but I’m open to other non SW jobs. I just have a couple questions about the whole process and how it works.

Is it possible to enlist and then switch once I feel I’m ready go into the SW pipeline, and if so, how hard is that to do compared to just going to a recruiter straight off the bat.

Do I need to go to a specific SW Recruiter to join SW or is it possible to do so from any AF recruiter.

I was also wondering if there’s any ASVAB requirements for SW, specifically PJ.

Any advice is appreciated,
Thank you.

All enlisted have an ASVAB requirement, as far as the rest of your questions your best answer source is seeking out a SW recruiter as the switching after enlisting has additional uncertainties than enlisting off the bat with a SW contract.

To piggy back on Yukon, there have been individuals that have changed jobs (PJ-CCT, or vice versa), although it is quite rare. Likely the only new requirements would be to attend the AFSC-specific training courses in the pipeline (such as Paramedic, PJ Apprentice to become a PJ).
All AFSW jobs have the same ASVAB requirement.
