Other Cards to Load in the Working Tickler
The working tickler is designed to contain cards for
all recruiting activity. It becomes the days work plan.
Not only do the additional cards serve as reminders,
they are also easily located within the system.
FOLLOW-UP CARDS. One of the best ways to
determine if your RINCs are running effective working
ticklers is to check for cards loaded in out-days and
months for follow-up. You should find cards programmed
for contact that have previously been identified as
awaiting scholarships, trying new jobs, needing retests,
having temporary medical problems, and so on.
ITINERARY DATA CARDS. Itinerary data
cards should be filed in the working tickler behind the
day they are next scheduled to be run. The only time
they are not in the working tickler is when they are
accompanying a recruiter on the itinerary or being
QNE CARDS. Prospect cards for individuals who
have qualified but not enlisted (QNEd) are maintained
in the working tickler for 6 months to ensure the
required monthly contacts are made.
DEP CARDS. Prospect cards for personnel in the
DEP are maintained in the working tickler. They should
be filed behind the day they are planned to be contacted.
All DEP cards should not be filed together. There should
be a plan of phone and face-to-face contact that will
determine DEP card placement in the working tickler.
RECURRING REPORTS. A 5 by 8 card should
be filed for each recurring report that is required from
the station. There is no required format for the report
tickler cards used in the working tickler; however, the
Navy does have a Recurring Reports Record, NAVSO
521 3/7, shown in figure 5-11. You can use this card,
adapt it to your needs, or use any 5 by 8 index card to
create your own. Recurring reports that you should
maintain tickler cards for include the following:
Annual equipment inventory
Transportation request/bulk ticket/meal ticket
Out-of-pocket expense claims
