    So, I am in the Army Reserves, and I can't seem to find a damn job to save my life.... Does anyone know how hard it is to switch from Reserves to active? Or what kind of options do Reservists have to work with their units?

    I am in a similar situation as far as the reserves go right now... The only advice I have is you should talk to a recruiter and work on your request for conditional release (DD368) If your unit doesnt truly 'need' you then going active shouldn't be too difficult.
    If you can't get released I would say you should look into going to school. If all you have is a GED or HS Diploma it can and will be difficult to get a job thats more than minimum wage.

    I would assume it would be pretty fucking easy.

    Not sure about the army, but you'd lose out on a TON of money if you went from Reserve to AD vice Reserve to MOB orders. Atleast that's the way the Corps is

    you could always see about becoming a full time reservist. a buddy of mine says that full time reserve is the best of both worlds.
