  • Active Duty NG - How hard is it to get an IST ?

    How hard is it for an AGR E7 (mos in admin, supply, infantry, and artillery) in Indiana to obtain an IST? Currently working in admin and would like to continue working in admin.

    Are some states easier to transfer to than others? If so, which ones?

    If you want to IST, higher grades generally have a harder time since there are fewer positions.

    If you want to continue to serve AGR in your new state, that will prove even harder. You must find an advertised AGR vacancy open to out-of-state applicants. You may consider taking an admin reduction.

      Been encouraged to apply for a WO position in admin. Would an IST be easier or harder as an AGR WO or OCS in admin than as an E7?

        Now you're trying to do two complex maneuvers at the same time. Your gaining State OSM will have more precise guidance on this issue.

        If you want to stay AGR, then you'll need to get hired AGR in your gaining State, in whatever category they'll take you.

          You are an AGR E-7 who works in Admin (assuming 42A), and you have to come here to ask how to transfer to another state?? You are making us look bad.

          You have to put your priorities in order of precedence in order to pull this off. Is it more important to you to Move, Stay AGR, or find another position in ANY state. The reason I put it that way is because most likely it will not happen all at one time.

          The best case scenario is you apply to a Nationwide Vacancy somewhere else, get hired, and somewhat seamlessly transfer from One AGR job into another, without being forced to wait a year. If you resign, you are ineligble for AGR for 12 months.

          So you could resign, move, transfer (you may have to be reduced) then reapply AGR when eligible and keep your fingers crossed you get back in. Turn around time in this scenario is probably 18 months start to finish until you were realistically back on AGR.

          Scenario two, apply everywhere BEFORE moving/resigning and see what you can get first. Turn around time here is anywhere between 1 day to eternity.

          Call and talk to Ricky White, he is the IST coordinator for Indiana.
