SRT Team medic, (Special Response Team) 4th man in lineup during room breaching and clearing. Close quarters combat trained. General Recruiting Experience and Training In this high stress, fast pace, high stress job I was rated continuously one of the best, by my peers and my managers. In this position the key development skill I was able to enhance was the ability to connect with the different wants and needs to each individual person. I treat everyone as the most important thing in my life. I realized early on when first starting out, that applicants wanting to join the military are more than just numbers, they are real human beings; flesh and blood people making one of the greatest decisions in their lifetimes. Working with people in this way, I was able to gain a different perspective; they gave me their trust, and I gave them my mentorship and friendship which resulted in me transferring to them one of the most intangible items ever, "A new way of life." A life in the Army National Guard. With this life came benefits such as paid education, life insurance, bonuses, and an understanding that they were becoming a part of something that was greater than themselves. Many lives were changed due to my influence. As you read further, you will see my abilities. I worked as an independent Station Commander, assistant area Section Chief, and interim Section Chief, leading and managing 8 to 12 subordinate recruiters in daily aspects of recruiting including, training, teaching, mentoring, area canvassing, and performance evaluations. I managed my own recruiting program which consisted of high school career direction programs, cold calling, and following a month by month marketing plan that would net me enough prospects in my funnel to pull from and turn into qualified applicants to fill my monthly and yearly quotas. I continuously sold the features and benefits of the Guard and geared them towards the wants and needs of my prospects. My closing skills were extraordinary to the point that I amassed approximately 200 qualified enlistments during my ten year tenure, averaging at least if not more than 2 per month, not counting numerous enlistments closed for fellow Recruiters I trained. In order to become a Master Badge Recruiter one must make their yearly mission three years in a row after finishing recruiter school. I was luckily awarded mine two and a half years early because I over produced and exceeded my amount of required enlistments before the allotted time came.
