CONCORD, N.H. — A new executive order ensures that all former and current members of the New Hampshire National Guard are guaranteed a job interview with the state for most publicly posted job opportunities for which a member meets the minimum qualifications.

Gov. Chris Sununu signed the order Monday. It builds on a memorandum of understanding from earlier this year that guarantees members of the U.S. Army an interview with the state of New Hampshire.

Sununu said the action will help boost the Guard’s recruiting efforts.
