Alot of Soldiers ask how easy it is to get a fulltime job in the Guard, and I'm bored here at work lol. so here is a basic outline of what needs to be done, the rest is up to you:
Phase 1(Finding it)- Go to http://www.neguard.com/HRO/otherjobs-linkspage.asp, find your state link and go to it.
Phase 2(Applying for it)- Find positions that fit your rank and MOS(and MOS immaterial as well), and APPLY with a FULL PACKET. Keep in mind that even if you don't know all of the KSA's, apply anyway, you can always learn and be taught. If it says include both a 612 and a resume, do that. If ANYTHING is missing, you will be turned away and won't make it to the interview phase.
Phase 3(Interview)- After your application is submitted you will get a reciept and be sent on your way. After that, the vacany announcement will close on the date it states, then you will get a call to set up an interview. They will tell you where to be and when to be there. BE EARLY, and be in a DRESS UNIFORM. I don't care if you don't think you need to be in one, do it. It sets a mental standard that you are there to impress. Sit straight up in the chair and answer all the questions clearly, no um or like. Always ask a question at the end(I like to ask what I can improve on for future reference), and thank them for their time.
NOTE from RSP NCO-Study before the interview! Look up regulations, manuals, and anything you can about the systems you will be using and people you will be dealing with. If you know someone within the unit, talk to them. It does 2 things for you, helps you learn more about the job to impress them, and people talk! It can get to the interviewers that you were asking questions and really interested, and you can be surprised what that does for your draft stock
Phas 4(Waiting and final Verdict)- You will leave the interview and then you will wait. After some time you will get a letter in the mail if you didn't get it, or a call and letter if you did.
Don't be bummed if you didn't get it, keep applying. This isn't a one and done sport, you need to continuously apply. It's a numbers game, just like the civilian world.
GOOD LUCK AND HAPPY HUNTING guys. Post questions if you need them, others can chime in if I forgot anything or for good advice. I'm sure SteveLord and RSP and LRSU have good addons(Not saying others don't! Just the names that came to mind!)
