  • Full-Time Guardsman?

    I'm in the process of joining the New York Army National Guard and am wondering if I am able to make it a full-time job rather a part-time.

    Since your just now joining you most likely won't be able to, especially if you're not a E4 but you can't just say "I'll do full time" you have to apply and get selected.

      Here is an idea, go active duty.

      AGR jobs in the guard are hard to come by and highly competitive, and it helps if you have been in for a while and have built a good re****tion through networking and making friends in the right places.

      Full time ADOS positions, as in the position gets funded ever year are even more rare. Everything stated about AGR would apply in this case as well. For short term ADOS orders(orders can range from a couple weeks to several months) are subject to funding and typically do not get funded year after year.

        If you're looking for full time, the National Guard is not your best option. Unless you really bust your butt and know your stuff (including people), it's unlikely.

        It also depends on your MOS, granted an 11B can apply for a 92Y Supply Sergeant job, but the chances of 10 other 92Ys that have been in for years doing their job for years is high.

          But we all know they would give it to the 92A

            Just because they don't know all the tricky in and out of supply
