Space Force Launches First Recruiting Commercial and Here’s What Jobs Are Available


The United States Space Force has dropped its first recruiting commercial and now, you can see which jobs await Americans who want to join the newest branch of the military.  Initial MOS (Military Occupational Specialities) include Cyberspace Operations Officer, Space Operation Officer, Space Systems Operations, Fusion Analyst, Targeting Analyst, Computer Systems Programmer and Knowledge Operations Manager.

While other branches of service in the United States lure recruits in with lines such as, “The Few. The Proud. The Marines.”  and “Army, Be all you can be.”, Space Force tells recruits, “Maybe your purpose on this planet, isn’t on this planet.”

“The possibilities of enhancing our military effectiveness through the use of space are virtually endless. Space Operations Officers direct the entire system utilizing satellites that enhance our communication and tracking,” read the recruiting message. “They oversee space surveillance, space lift, space warning and satellite command and control. By assessing the effectiveness of all space operations and incorporating new technology as it becomes available, they develop future plans for systems, facilities and personnel in order to defend our nation.”
