    Saturation for the 06 Field

    Good morning Marines!

    First let me say that, I understand being a Marine comes first. Also the needs of the Corps comes first.

    I have 7 years experience in the Data Field. Recently I was just "guaranteed" a spot as a DB 0600 1100. (Still not exactly sure how that pairing works) I'm ecstatic because i've been waiting since June to hear back whether or not I would be able to do Comms in the Corps. I'm shooting for a 0656 Data Network Specialist.

    Is there anything I can do while in Recruit Training, MCT, or My MOS school that would help me to get that job? Will any of the past 7 years be taken into consideration when it comes time for assinging me my job? I am not sure how much of a chance I could be assigned an 1100 job. My heart won't be broken, I just know I can contribute the most doing Comms. I was studying for my CCNA but don't want to waste the money/time if I'm going to be a radio operator.

    Any additional information is appreciated.

What job you are given is determined by your ASVAB scores, background, and needs of the Marine Corps.

    If you want to get some information about the MOS's that are included in these fields i would suggest looking them up on and reading about the various jobs you could do.

    As far as knowing what specific job you will be doing, you will know by either the end of Recruit Training or MCT.
    Is it either or? Has anyone more information since this post? 01-06-11
    I'm unable to post in those threads, since it's in "Ask a Marine".

    Still looking for guidance. Not all of my questions have been answered.

    That program has 12 MOS's in it that you could potentially be placed into.
    I will have to double check my GT and EL. I know you can get a 5pt waiver? Is that true or just gossip?
