National Guard Jobs

National Guard Job Overview

People interested in National Guard jobs can serve with either the Air Force or the Army. Enlisted individuals only train on a part-time basis for one weekend every month, and then a two-week intensive training session each year. They usually continue to hold traditional forms of employment until called for active duty. Here are some of the reasons why National Guard members may be required to serve:
  • To maintain order after terrorism attacks
  • To provide aid after a state of emergency has been declared by a state governor after a weather-related emergency
  • To offer additional security at airports and border crossing
  • To encourage peace during times of civil unrest

National Guard Job Education Requirements

People who want to join the National Guard must have a high school diploma or GED. Other aptitude and physical tests may be required depending on a person's desired position within the National Guard. It is also necessary to take a placement exam known as the Armed Forces Vocational Aptitude Battery. That test helps determine the type of military jobs that would be ideal for an individual. If you already have a certain kind of experience, you may be able to transfer it to the National Guard, such as by working in law enforcement or airport security.

National Guard Job Market

Although job prospects are expected to stay the same from now through 2022, opportunities are good for individuals who are well qualified. Due to emerging conflicts that may require the need for military intervention, the United States must consistently maintain adequate numbers of enlisted individuals within the National Guard and Air National Guard. It's generally easier to meet enlistment quotas when the economy is doing poorly and other job prospects are limited.

National Guard Job Salary Information

As a member of the National Guard, the amount of money you can earn depends on factors such as your education and the amount of time you have been serving. However, no matter what, you'll always be paid for each day you serve, and earn more whenever you're on active duty. For example, the average pay for a person who is just starting in the National Guard and only serving on weekends can expect to earn $3,184 annually. However, if that same person is on active duty, it's possible to earn over $1,500 per month as a soldier.
