Selected Reserve Community


Welcome to the SELRES Enlisted Community Manager (ECM) homepage!
The Reserve Force is comprised of more than 68 ratings manned by nearly 35,000 SELRES Sailors.  The SELRES ECM shop performs a broad range of community management functions.  
Specific functions include, but are not limited to:  
  • Developing recruiting requirements
  • Establishing training requirements
  • Developing advancement quotas
  • Transitioning Sailors from the Active Component (AC) to the Reserve Component (RC)
  • And from the RC back to AC, via CWAY
  • Developing Selective Reenlistment Bonus (SRB)
  • Special Duty Assignment Pay (SDAP) and Enlistment Bonus (EB) levels
  • Analyzing the impact of proposed policy changes on the communities
Community Health
Community Health slides are updated monthly and posted for Senior Leadership, Career Counselors, and most importantly, Sailors to be informed of the rating status.  The slides can be found on our SELRES Overview Page. 

We recommend that you check back often for Community Management news and updates.  Feel free to contact us with any questions (POCs on the right side of page).

Career Waypoints

CWAY is a change to how we do business in enlisted career management, putting Sailors at the helm to navigate their careers.  The goal of CWAY is to help Sailors make informed decisions about their personal and professional career opportunities by placing the power of Navy career management systems at their fingertips.  

How does CWAY affect you?
CWAY modules are making the Chief of Navy Reserve's "lane change" vision a reality.  Sailors can transform from the AC to the RC via the CWAY-Reenlistment module.

"Fit" is a term used in Navy manpower and personnel management circles, and describes having the right Sailor (rating, paygrade, etc.), with the right (NEC), filling to right billets (RFAS codes, etc.) at the right cost (local fill vs. cross-assigned, for example).  The vision is to enable the SELRES ECM to offer personalized conversion opportunities directly to the Sailor and his command, with the purpose of increasing Fit, improving retention, and increasing promotion opportunity for SELRES Warriors.  

Are you an Active Component (AC) Sailor, within 10 months of EAOS, wondering about Reserve Component (RC) opportunities?
Your Career Counselor can assist you with an application to transition to the RC via CWAY.  If granted a Selected Reserve (SELRES) Reenlistment quota, you must select a drill site from the Career Management System/Interactive Detailing (CMS/ID).  In rate quotas are given out up to nine months prior to SEAOS date.  Sailors who did not  request a quota via CWAY and if they are within 90 days of SEAOS can submit a SELRES quota request via 1306/7 as per MILPERSMAND 1306-1501.  Once a quota is granted and you start the affiliation process you can expect to be contacted by a member of the Career Transition Office (CTO).  You will be assigned a Transition Assistant (TA).  The mission of the CTO is to facilitate your smooth and timely transition into the RC.  

For Sailors interested in Full Time Support (FTS) opportunities, contact the FTS ECM responsible for the rating for which you have interest.

Frequently Asked Questions

A:  Working through your Career Counselor, you
Q:  How do I apply for a RC2RC rating conversion?
Sailor can apply for conversion via CWAY through the RC to RC module.  The CWAY application allows you to review which ratings are undermanned, the ASVAB scores, and additional job requirements or skill set required for a specific rating.  CWAY will even show you why you don't qualify for a certain rating, so you know exactly what needs to be done so that you can gain the necessary qualifications to apply for the desired advertised opportunity.
