79T TUNE-UP: (Doing the basics well)

NG Pam 601-1-

6-10. School Entry Vehicles (SEV)

Within general campus recruiting, there are two methods to gain entry to our assigned schools, which are host to our primary NPS market. They are as follows:

  1. School presentations are to expose both faculty and students to the assigned RRNCO and ARNG, with the end result creating interest in what the ARNG has to offer. School presentations can fit into either one of two categories:
  • School entry vehicles (SEV) are developed by the individual RRNCO or purchased through State or NGB initiatives. The NGB has obtained at least one program under a national contract in which RRNCOs are trained to present training and assistance to students in obtaining skills to survive in the job market. There are many programs that can be used as a SEV to gain access to the students; however, the main goal of an SEV is to sell the student on the need to further explore the benefits of the ARNG with a face-to-face appointment with the RRNCO.

The best vehicle is a class room presentations specifically about the ARNG.

Second best vehicle is a classroom presentation to enhance the current classroom curriculum.

Career Training Concepts

H.E.A.R Helping Everyone Achieve Respect

YOU CAN Program

Guard Fit Challenge

Career Direction 2

HUMVEE School Program

Heritage Outreach Program

Third best vehicle is in a classroom providing an experience you can tie into ARNG.

Inflatable Obstacle Course

Punching Machine

Orienteering Course

Cautions:  use as a targeted marketing vehicle or you will attract small kids.

(2) Classroom instruction in a subject in which the RRNCO is well qualified to instruct, such as the mission of the ARNG and military history can provide a useful service to the school and provide exposure for the RRNCO.

  1. Career days are usually an open forum for military, business, and/or school and college recruiters to present their programs and opportunities to students. Maximum participation in career days hosted by the school are highly encouraged as the students are required to attend, in most cases, and the RRNCO has the opportunity to talk to a large number of students in a short time. Maximum usage of ARNG personnel who are graduates or students in the particular school pays big dividends in personifying the ARNG message through these satisfied customers as part of the ARNG display. Both school presentations and career day activities must provide a benefit to the student, school, and the ARNG. When designed to enhance a student’s learning and/or provide them a service, the school will usually support and welcome the RRNCO.

LEADERSHIP LESSON:  (Professional Development)

“Best thing you can do to become a great recruiter is to become a great Soldier.”  CSM Butz

ADRP 6-22

4 PARTS OF ADRP 6-22

PART ONE:  THE BASICS OF LEADERSHIP

PART TWO:  THE ARMY LEADER: PERSON OF CHARACTER, PRESENCE AND INTELLECT

PART THREE:  COMPETENCY-BASED LEADERSHIP FOR DIRECT THROUGH STRATEGIC LEVELS

PART FOUR:  LEADING AT ORGANIZATIONAL AND STRATEGIC LEVELS

 

LOYALTY: BEAR TRUE FAITH AND ALLEGIANCE TO THE U.S. CONSTITUTION, THE ARMY, YOUR UNIT AND OTHER SOLDIERS.

3-5. All Soldiers and Army Civilians swear an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. The Constitution established the legal basis for the Army in Article I, Section 8, where it outlines congressional responsibilities regarding America’s armed forces. Consequently, leaders—as members of the armed forces or Army Civilians—have an obligation to be faithful to the Army and its people.

3-6. To create strong organizations, superiors, subordinates, and peers must embrace loyalty. Good units build loyalty and trust through training. Leaders earn subordinates’ loyalty by training them well, treating them fairly, and living the Army Values. Loyalty and trust are extremely critical for the successful day-today operations of all organizations. Ultimately, loyalty extends to other Services and agencies. The reality of modern operations shows that unified action partners are essential to successful mission outcomes.

 

“Loyalty – Loyalty in the life of a Recruiting and Retention NCO can mean many things.  A good Recruiter/Retention NCO must be loyal to his or her team, pulling their load day after day, month after month.  You must be loyal to the unit you support, doing everything you can to take care of the soldiers in your charge.  You must be loyal to your state and country, never forgetting that it is up to you to find quality men and women to defend the constitution and the ideals we uphold.  And last, but certainly not least, you must be loyal to your friends and loved ones, as it is often they who bear the brunt of the sacrifices that must be made to be successful in this business.”
