    Has anyone heard of this? My son has met with his recruiter, taken the ASVAB and has his physical in 10 days. The recruiter told him that they are only taking reserves at this time? is this just for the line of work he wants to do or are they just too impacted? Any info would be great. He would really like to go in for full time, should he change the line of work he would like to do? would this help<!-- Edit -->

    Each office has a certain number of active duty openings and reserve openings. It could be that his office already has enough qualified people to fill their active duty openings.

    You can meet the standard, or you can set the standard. It's your choice.

    thanks for the info. How hard is it to move from reserve to full time? can be brought up to full time before they offer other it recruits?

    It can be pretty tough to go that route. It is still driven on openings on active duty, and there is no preference to fill the spot with a reservist first.

    As far as the reserves, that is a whole different animal than active duty. When applying to the reserves, a person is basically applying for a particular job opening. For instance, if there is a need for a cook in the local area, then that person would have to be a cook if they wanted to join. If they have an opening for an electrician, same deal. You have a lot less choices when you go the reserve route.

    Many offices are in the exact same situation right now. The economy has seriously increased our number of applicants, allowing us to be extremely selective. It's all about being competitive. It starts with the applicant themself. To begin with, we want people with clean criminal backgrounds and strong moral character. Education generally comes next. We have a lot of people with 4 year degrees applying to come in enlisted. After that, the ASVAB is the next factor in determining competitiveness. The textbook minimum is a 45 however, with the amount of applicants testing, a 75 or above is more realistic for competing. There are other factors such as medical history, but those are the ones that generally stand out the most.
