CHAPTER 1 THE CAREER RECRUITER FORCE This training manual (TRAMAN), along with its nonresident training course (NRTC), is designed as a self-study course of instruction for those applying for or newly selected to the Career Recruiter Force (CRF). The TRAMAN covers leadership, training, and management roles of the CRF. Most of the instruction is geared to the zone supervisor (ZS) level, with some recruiter-in- charge (RINC) level references. The TRAMAN begins with chapters dealing with  people: the CRF community, training,  and  personnel  management.  Next,  it  covers  the mechanics   of  recruiting:  Navy  recruiting  station  (NRS) operation and administration, marketing, actual recruiting procedures  and  techniques,  and  public  affairs.  The  last two  chapters  deal  with  management  and  analysis systems:  visits,  inspections,  and  meetings.  The  order  of the  TRAMAN  reinforces  the  CRF  belief  in  putting people first, mechanics second, and finally, analysis to find  out  what  mechanics  your  people  need  help  with. This first chapter is an introduction to the CRF. It is important to understand the concept, development, and structure of the Force to fully appreciate your member- ship in this elite organization. In this chapter we give you a brief history of the Force and how it came to be with some important milestones that have occurred in its history. We then give you the assignments available to members  of  the  Force.  After  that,  we  describe  the knowledge  and  skills  that  are  required  by  CRF personnel. Then we give you a brief description of the recruiting   command   organization   touching   on   the various duties and programs of the departments and personnel. DEVELOPMENT OF THE CAREER RECRUITER  FORCE In the following paragraphs we explore the purpose, history, selection, and scope of the CRF. As you trace the   steps   of   CRF   development,   you   will   better understand  the  responsibilities  of  career  recruiting. PURPOSE The  CRF  was  created  to  develop  a  cadre  of exceptional  recruiting  managers  to  provide  consistency and leadership to the recruiting effort. Let’s take a look at what that charter means to us. Cadre Webster  defines  cadre  as  a  small  unified  group organized to instruct or lead a larger group; a nucleus; an operational unit of key personnel around which an expanded organization can be built. As a member of the CRF, you are the nucleus of the recruiting business. You provide the framework for the entire organization. Consistency The word consistency has a twofold meaning and both apply well to our purpose. First, conformity; we all want  to  be  doing  business  the  same  basic  way.  The recruiters have a right to expect their direction and training to have a common thread and be based on the same  basic  principles.  Consistency  also  means  the condition of holding together. Therein lies another CRF responsibility.  By  virtue  of  continued  tours  in  recruiting, we  provide  the  corporate  knowledge  and  experience  to hold our team together. CRF  HISTORY Although  relatively  new  to  the  Navy,  the  CRF  has already had its share of historic events. Starting with a small group of dedicated recruiters, the CRF has grown to an elite organization of recruiting leaders. Approval by the Chief of Naval Personnel With  the  advent  of  the  all-volunteer  force,  the recruiting command recognized the need for a stable force  of  recruiting  managers.  The  Chief  of  Naval Personnel (CHNAVPERS) approved the formation of the CRF on 9 January 1978 and dedicated 750 billets in paygrades E-6 through E-9 to the CRF. The CRF was to make up 25 percent of the recruiting strength. The First CRF Board The  Commander,  Navy  Recruiting  Command (COMNAVCRUITCOM or CNRC) held the first CRF selection board 25-29 April 1978. The board selected 44 proven recruiters to become the first CRF. Originally, selectees  remained  in  their  respective  ratings  and maintained  a  sea/shore  rotation. 1-1
