ARMY Recruiter

A typical day as an ARMY Recruiter was to stay productive and to either meet or surpass the goals of the mission. To call as many applicants (High school students, college students, and referrals. We arranged sit down meetings with applicants in groups or single meetings. For our high school students we met with parents so we could provide information about the Army and what we could offer the applicant. The more we did this the more we had people join the Army. I learned a lot about people as a recruiter. I learned that never to give up and to be persistent. As recruiters we all came from different areas of the ARMY, and had to work together as a team. Our workplace culture was a strong belief in being ARMY Strong. As solider's we came together to meet our mission. Recruiters were successful if you were able to talk to so many people per day as well as conduct two to five interviews a day. If you were able to do so you were considered a successful recruiter. There was management to make sure that everyone did there part in the office. Some offices worked as a team while others worked individually to meet the mission required. The hardest part of the job was when you worked really hard with an applicant and right when they are about to commit they changed their mind or someone else changed it for them. Hard work did pay off by getting rewarded with additional time off and awards for outstanding performance.

Army Recruiting

Mandatory job assignment I had to do while being a Soldier in the United States Army. Really tough assignment, long work hours and your day is micromanaged by a lot of supervisors.

Fun work place

start the day off with making a list for cold phone calls, contact the list for appointments. its ever changing because you must work with and for people. i overlook the work and work ethics of 4 other employees. we basically make our own daily agenda, face to face contacts, phone calls and multimedia to find applicants. meeting new people and seeing the change and effect you can have on others is most enjoyable.

Pros

meeting new people

Cons

not always easy to get the results that you want

•the most enjoyable part of the job

The most enjoyable part of my job, is meeting an individual and having him/her go through the process of recruiting and joining the military. Then staying in contact with them through social media and see how successful they are in the big Army, and know that you made a difference in that person life. That is the real art of recruiting in any organization.

Pros

meeting new people

Cons

having no control on applicants that do not qualify
