Careers to grow in

Part-time jobs often mean minimum wage and little chance of advancement. But that’s not the case with the National Guard.

Serving in the Guard is a one-weekend-a-month, two-weeks-a-year commitment and gets you a regular paycheck with advanced benefits. It’s a reserve component of the Army and Air Force, and you work alongside well-educated and motivated professionals who eventually become like family.

In the Guard, you can be anything from a policeman to a human resources specialist to an artilleryman. You have a choice in what job you choose, and you can have multiple jobs throughout your career. You will have the opportunity to do some really amazing stuff — the kind of stuff we dream of doing as kids, but lose sight of as we grow up.
