National Guard and Reserve Job Opportunities

Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) is a Department of Defense (DoD) organization. It is a staff group within the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs (OASD/RA), which is in itself a part of the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD).

ESGR was established in 1972 to promote cooperation and understanding between Reserve component members and their civilian employers and to assist in the resolution of conflicts arising from an employee's military commitment. It is the lead DoD organization for this mission under DoD Directive 1250.1.

Veterans Benefits Adminstration Non-paid Work Experience

Some Wounded Warrior’s (WW) who are referred to hiring managers or identified in the WW Resume Inventory may not have the experience needed to be considered for the Command’s available vacancies. In those instances, we ask Commands to consider creating a Non-Paid Work Experience opportunity for the WW. CHRA and the Com-mand can coordinate with an Employment coordinator in the Veteran’s Benefits Ad-ministration (VBA) to set-up the experience.

The VBA’s Non-Paid Work Experience program (NPWE) provides eligible veterans with the opportunity to obtain training and practical job experience concurrently. This program is ideal for eligible veterans who have a clearly established career goal, and who learn easily in a hands-on environment. After placement in the NPWE pro-gram, a VBA Case Manager/Employment Specialist will closely monitor the veteran’s progress to ensure that all training goals are being met. While the Command doesn’t pay the WW a salary, the VBA does provide them with a small stipend.

After the Command helps the WW gain experience, we do ask them to consider hiring the WW non-competitively into a permanent appointments, although that is not a re-quirement.

If you are interested in the WW NPWE program, please contact Ms. Jean Tyler, Human Resources Specialist at or 703-602-1253.
