What positions in the Air Force get paid the in the civilian sector?
I recently enlisted in the Air Force and I was looking at some of the jobs that are available. I want to get a job that (1) can carry over to the civilian sector and (2) that pays pretty well. I was told that Air Traffic Controllers are one of the highest paid positions that come out of the Air Force, but what else would be a good occupation to look into?

ATC is a very stressful job but definitely worth it if you can handle it, and it has many career oppurtunities in the civilian world. If you think you're good with foreign languages, Crypto-linguist would not be a bad route either. Any mechanical job that involves working on aircraft are in high demand on the outside.
