Message from CR: a recruiting question has (amazingly) led to a fairly interesting discussion, so i'm opening this new thread to relocate some of the posts to here (because i know most people don't read the recruiting sticky). moved posts to follow. Howayman said: The quote function is bust...but REMFQuestions stated that the Corps is about to become mighty choosy with who they recruit and that 500+ OPMI's are about to be without a real role when we leave Herrick...I can't imagine recruitment will stay steady as it is at the moment. I would just like to point out that : A. The Corps is already choosy about who it takes. REMF even alludes to it when he says that he was 'shaded', which actually means taken at risk. It is not a technique. It's a gamble. B. 500+ OPMI's will still have a role when HERRICK folds. Just like they had a role before HERRICK even started. C. Recruitment is currently on a mild surge. In my humble opinion, the Corps may actually do well post SDSR and may grow again, possibly by a couple of hundred posts. That means that the throughput may have to increase again...meaning that recruitment within the Corps may remain steady, or even increase. But hey...what do I know.
