They will put you in the job if you fit the profile. Just because you tested well, there may not be a need, or you do not have the mental profile they are looking for.

Military needs come first. If they want you, and there is a position in the job you want you can get it. If they do not have a place for you in the job you requested then go home. You do not HAVE to joing the military. If it is only about the money to you we do not want you.

don't sign unless its in writing on your contract...the army is the only branch who guarantees a mos (job) if you qualify so if its another branch they may not be able to accommodate you.

If the position is not open, they won't offer it. The needs of the Army come first. If you don't get what you want, get up and leave. It's that simple. If you are otherwise qualified, and the job is not available, go to another branch. See if the Navy, Marines or Air Force have an opening.
