Currently early on in my enlistment for Army National Guard. I’m in college and joined for tuition assistance and decided on Army because I liked the job better than those offered by Air Guard. Ive been looking into the option for Air guard because of better quality of life, more 2 day drills, and less/shorter deployments. The shorter deployments and shorter drills are what interest me the most because I want to focused mainly on college. My questions are:
1. How much choice do I have as to what job I choose? My job (15T, Blackhawk mechanic) is used in the Air Force but I don’t think in my state. I’ve got a good asvsb score but I’m not sure how likely it would be to get a job I want.
2. How early can I hope to transfer/get in contact with a recruiter? I don’t want to contact a recruiter and have them ignore me because I’m too early in my enlistment to switch.
3. How likely is it that I would be able to switch?
That’s about it, you can call me stupid for not knowing what I was doing when I joined but I just want to know what my options are now.

My advise is to find an Army career counselor at your unit and lay this on the table. I am going to suspect you will have to serve some time before the INARNG cuts you loose to another unit, let alone a whole different service. As a former Guard guy myself, they don't like to loose people if they don't have too.

I was 8 months out of my enlistment in the NG. Went and talked to an ANG recruiter. He asked for a release from the NG. Talked to my CO and he signed it, a month later I enlisted in the ANzg and was off to Loadmaster school a month after that.
