Soldiers are sent in for military medical tests and health screenings once a year, but it’s not uncommon for them to wait weeks or months for the results.
Now, it’s becoming increasingly common for troops to start submitting applications for re-employment, and with a growing number of soldiers facing serious health issues, it could have a significant impact on the job market.
A new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that when a soldier does not submit a new medical application, the likelihood of getting hired drops by about 70 percent.
The study, led by researchers from the National Institutes of Health, analyzed the job prospects of a total of 10,000 recruits for the Army Reserve Recruiting Command (ARRC), which has more than 12,000 soldiers.
The research found that the odds of being hired increased by an average of 60 percent after a soldier did not submit an application.
The researchers say the study could have important implications for the current and future unemployment rate for Army Reserve personnel.
The survey was conducted in January and February of this year.
In the first half of the study, soldiers who did not send in their application in time to be eligible for reemployment were offered jobs at the Army Medical Center in Fort Benning, Georgia, and at the National Guard Medical Center at Fort Bennington, Vermont.
The next two months saw the lowest number of re-employments for Army reserve personnel, as soldiers were offered at Army National Guard barracks in Washington, D.C. and Fort Gordon, Kentucky.
The military also offers training opportunities for recruits, and those who apply for rehire can also receive counseling and financial support.
While the Army is offering job training and counseling, the military also has a robust employment program for Army reservists, including the Army Recruiter Assistance Program (ARAP), which provides financial assistance for military applicants and is currently the largest civilian employment program in the country.
The ARAP has helped more than 9,300 Army reserve soldiers get jobs, the most of any branch of the military, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The Army has also been helping recruit soldiers since at least 2000.
According to the study’s authors, the program has a significant effect on recruiting for military jobs, as it can lead to more job offers.
“The ARAP program is a major driver of Army recruitment, as well as employment, and therefore, the effects of this program are likely to be substantial,” the authors wrote.
The current unemployment rate of 5.8 percent is lower than the historical average of 8.5 percent for Army recruits, but the researchers say they can find no data that proves that the unemployment rate among Army recruits is higher than that of non-soldiers.
However, they note that the current unemployment rates of Army recruits are higher than the rate among non-volunteers, and that the rate of unemployment among soldiers has risen over time.
“This suggests that Army recruiters may be over- or under-reporting their unemployment rates to avoid the negative impact of their recruitment,” the study authors wrote in the report.
The report also found that Army recruits have lower rates of mental health problems, such as anxiety and depression, than non-reserve troops, but that it has been hard to gauge the impact of the program on the Army.
“We know that there are some negative effects of the Army program on morale, especially in the case of recruits who have experienced severe mental health conditions, such that recruiters have been reluctant to engage with recruits who are at high risk of having a serious mental health issue,” the researchers wrote.
But the study found that there were also positive effects on recruiting, including a reduction in turnover.
“When we analyzed the impact on recruiting of the ARAP, we found that recruitment declined significantly over the course of the year when compared with the previous year,” the report concluded.
