Direct hire program for enlisted Reserve Marines

By Lance Cpl. Tessa Watts | Marine Corps Forces Reserves | March 2, 2018


Selected Marine Corps Reserve and Individual Mobilization Augmentee enlisted Marines, are you ready to advance your career and take on new challenges? If so, then the direct hire program may be exactly what you are looking for. 

Currently, there are unfilled Active Reserve billets, which is impacting force readiness.

Through the use of the direct hire program, Inspector Instructor site commanders can submit qualified SMCR and IMA Marines for AR orders to fill these billets. The direct hire program is designed to fill AR vacancies and increase readiness across the force to 100 percent.

One of the key benefits of the direct hire program to the individual Marine is you become worldwide assignable following your initial AR tour and reenlistment. This means that Marines will not likely be assigned to consecutive tours at the location at which they accessed in to the program. It is a great opportunity to explore not only the country, but the world.

Typically tour lengths are 36-48 months based on the assignment, training requirements, and AR program needs.

So if you are ready to embark on a great adventure and are interested in gaining more information about all the benefits of the direct hire program, please contact your career planner as they are the primary point of contact, or visit http://www.marforres.marines.mil/about/reserve-career-billets/.
