ANG UPT hire- work with AFRC between now and OTS?

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this is possible but wanted to see if anyone knew- I was hired by an ANG squadron a little over a year ago. FC1 and all of that has been done for some time and was expecting April 1 OTS, then expected July 30 when I didn't get April, and haven't received anything on that. The next dates aren't til October.

I would request orders to go work full time at my hiring unit until training, but I currently live in another state, and also have a lease until October, as well as an SO who can't yet leave her job.

So my question is- would it be possible for me as an E3 awaiting OTS and UPT dates, to try to get orders/work at the AF Reserve airlift base in my current city? Or are there blocks on that since I am a member of another state's ANG?

 

Hope I framed this right. thanks!

you likely wouldnt be able to get orders from their unit. However, you may see what Title 5 technician jobs are posted on USAJobs that you could apply for because those are non-dual status positions meaning you do not have to be a member of the unit to apply.

What skills do you have that would benefit that unit, i.e. your current AFSC? If you are non-prior, then the chances are slim to none. There is zero benefit for the AFRC unit.

I am non-prior. That all makes sense, figured it wouldn't work out but wanted to check! Also will check on that title 5 thing just in case.

thanks guys.

Lucky,

 

Have you received your Oct dates?  If not, have they given you any information on why?  I’m in a very similar situation.

If your orders don’t show I within a week of your departure, you aren’t Air Forcing correctly.

Sorry I haven't been on here in a bit. No word on Oct dates yet. reasoning is my stuff is still at NGB, they say. Going to check back in next drill, but here's hoping we make it into one of the October classes.
