With hurricane season drawing to a close, marine recruiters are reaching out to recruiters from across the country, as companies scramble to get their crews home and to get back to work.
Here are some tips to help you get your marine job.
Start a conversation 1.
Ask yourself: Do you want to recruit a recruiter?
Do you have experience?
Are you available to talk?
Is this a position you’re passionate about?
There are plenty of jobs available, but do it with a laugh.
Ask your recruiter what you can do for them.
Ask for advice on what you’re looking for and what they need to do.
Ask about how to get started and get a sense of their culture.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions.
The recruiter may not want to be on the phone for more than a few minutes, so ask what you could do to make their job easier.
Ask them how to do something you want them to do, and then get to work!
Don-a-vis the recruiter.
If you’re not sure if you’re comfortable talking to them, it’s a good idea to wait until you’re in the recruiting booth.
Ask a question or two and ask for a few more.
If they’re willing to do that, they’ll get back you.
Donning your best Marine Corps cap will help you stand out in a sea of recruiters.
