Frequently Asked Questions


For Job Seekers:

Who do you assist?
We assist Service Members from the Alabama Army & Air National Guard. This includes spouses and veterans.

Are you a National Guard recruiter?
No. We assist current and former Service Members and their Families with finding civilian work and connecting them to additional resources they need.

Do I need a resume to register?
No. You can skip the resume part and wait to be contacted by your Employment Counselor.

I've registered but have not been contacted by anyone yet.
Check your spam folder for an email. If you still have an issue, please contact us.

I got an Employment Status Review but don't know what it means:
This form will help your Employment Counselor write your resume.

How long will it take to get a resume written?
The more engaged you are with your counselor, the faster it can be done. On average about 5 exchanges.

I have a resume that I just want critiqued.
Too easy! Create a login and upload your resume for a critique.

I tried searching for jobs but nothing is showing up! What does that mean?
There are two places to look for jobs on the search page: the job board, and the labor exchange. Job announcements will post and expire daily so check back often. The labor exchange is often overlooked and has many more vacancies from larger employers.

For Employers:

How much does it cost?
Nothing. NGEN is free for employers and for job seekers.

Who do I contact to register for a job fair?
