1. This message solicits candidates and outlines the application process
for members interested in applying for the position of Recruiter in Charge
(RIC) in AY19.
2. The job of a RIC is to lead a Recruiting Office in recruiting the best
possible applicants to fill the multi-mission and critical specialty needs
of the Coast Guard. RICs make daily decisions on how to bring in the applicants
most suitable to become a shipmate in our service. Their efforts shape the next
generation of Coast Guard men and women. Recruiting Offices recruit for active
duty and reserve enlisted, and all non-Academy officer programs. Along with
recruiting duties, RICs are responsible for all recruiting programs which include
leadership, mission planning, training, and administration of their recruiting
offices, which are often remote from other CG units. They supervise 3-10 E5/E6
and any officer trainees assigned to their recruiting office.  A history of good
leadership and judgment is a must.  Prospective RICs should be energetic,
demonstrate infallible character and professionalism, and have strong leadership
skills.  The selection, motivation, and training of the recruiter work force is a
top priority to meet the Coast Guard’s human capital needs. Please visit to see Coast Guard Recruiting in action.
