Ladies, Gents. The squadron is moving me into the Recruiting Office from early May and I've not had a great deal to do with it in the past. What I have heard is that my unit currently converts one out of fifteen potential recruits that come through the door into trained and traded soldiers. This statistic I find astonishing. Does anyone out there have similar statistics? If not, how do your figures compare? If the statistics are that bad, what are we doing wrong? Just as importantly, what do we do to improve them? On another note, there appears to be no pro-active recruiting done by the unit. Who is doing what out there, and how successful have your efforts been? I would much appreciate any usefull suggestions. It seems to me that if 25% of the 18 to 25 year old section of the population of this country is currently unemployed, and we are on a recruiting drive, then we should be on a winner, so why arn't they queuing at the door? Can we get a good thread going and bounce some ideas around? Many thanks.
