Hiring will start getting tight due to everything going on. Your credentials are good, but I recommending enlisting with a guard unit. That'll separate you from the pack since you are in the inner circle. Personally for me, enlisting has given me the edge because I was familiar with the military and their faces.

Check out the reserves unsponsored boards and possibly trying to improve the AFOQT. It's not a bad score at all, but it wouldn't hurt due to how tight things are right now. Keep at it though!
