“Recruitment is the process of attracting individuals on a timely basis, in sufficient numbers, and with appropriate qualifications, and encouraging them to apply for jobs with an organization.” (Mondy and Noe, 2005 page 221)
It was September 30th 2015 and I was coming off Active Duty Orders working for the Indiana Army National Guard Military Funeral Honors Team. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do next. When I went to Joint Forces Headquarters to pick up my DD Form 214, I ran into the Sergeant Major that was in charge of Recruiting and Retention for Indiana. I talked to him a little bit and he asked me if I had ever thought about becoming a recruiter. I told him that I have thought about it, but everyone I knew, told me that I couldn’t handle the stress of being a recruiter. Sergeant Major told me that the excuse I gave him should motivate me even more to be a recruiter. I told him that I would sleep on it and call him in the morning. The next morning, I called Sergeant Major and told him that I was ready to accept the challenge and be a RRNCO (Recruiting and Retention Non-Commissioned Officer).

The memorandum created to address and alter the federal government hiring process. The intentions of the memorandum were to generate brainstorming, support, collaboration and an effective plan through OPM, OMB and the agency management team. The goal to improve the recruiting and hiring process could ensure high-quality candidates.

Both the organization and the candidate seek to attract the other with their best foot forward, the Organization seeking to secure a candidate that is highly qualified and be beneficial to the success of the organization and on the other hand the candidate, who is trying to convince the recruiter he or she is the best person for the job.
Recruitment can incur a very large cost to an employer, therefore, organizations try to uses the method of recruitment which will have the lowest cost impact to the organization for each candidate.
