I will say that you're never to early to start thinking about the reclass process. I was in my primary MOS for less than a year and I could already tell that I wanted something different. Your best friend in this situation will be your units career counselor, however, if you're not in your window or close to your window for reclassing, you may not get a ton of information. This is due to the fact that what they may tell you now, may not be accurate in two years when you're eligible.
What I truly believe that you need right now is a good leader and not a new job. Your leader does not have to be your supervisor, it can even be someone with good experience that does not have stripes on their chest. But you do need help. Everyone needs a good leader to come to for help in these situations. Find someone near to you that you can trust and rely on and go to them for help. I wish you the best of luck in your upcoming future.

100% Agree, I was "voluntold" to do my secondary MOS when I got back in nothing wrong with the MOS I have now, it just isn't what I want to do, but Prior Service, you sometimes become needs of the Army. That said, I have been talking to my career counselor since I got to my unit. The things you have to watch out for is MOS Overage and just if your unit is ok to let a soilder go(9/10 they usually do, but I have heard of some that need someone to take the place of a SPC or NCO that is PCSing or ETSing).

I also agree that mentors are much needed in the military, and some of my best mentors came from other MOS's than my own, latch off of them and see If they can give you a heads up or a nod in the right direction

91E can be very rewarding, but is a but of a red headed stepchild in the Army. If you want to do some research, visit your local BSB, S&R shop to see how you like it. It's a great job, with a bit of creative freedom, and most people don't even know we exist. Because of that it also means that we have to work extra hard at some units to establish a welding shop. Again, just try to visit a BSB and check it out.

As a 92L there will be a big change this upcoming year. You will only be a 92l from e1-5 and at e6 you will change over to 92f

The mos is great however, it is difficult to promote. Took me 8 years to go from 5 to 6 because alc is only offered once per year. That is why the change.
