C. AY20 ALCGENL 055/19 Special Assignment Kick-off
1. All members are highly encouraged to pursue at least one Special
Assignment during their career. These career broadening assignments
provide members valuable opportunities to represent their Ratings, network,
and learn about other operational and mission support activities, making
them ideal candidates for future assignments to highly visible leadership
and management positions (e.g. Silver Badge, OIC, School Chief).
2. CG Production Recruiter (PR) recruit the best applicants to fill
the multi-mission and critical specialty needs of the Coast Guard. PRs 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. They recruit for active duty and reserve enlisted, and
all non-Academy officer programs. PRs visit schools, colleges, clubs, community
centers, etc. to advertise Coast Guard opportunities, identify prospects, and
develop relationships. PRs often engage parents and siblings to garner support
for the applicant's decision. PRs work irregular hours and perform travel to
accomplish their mission. In addition, PRs conduct the screening,
processing, and accession paperwork corresponding to an enlistment or commissioning.
Prospective PRs should be energetic, demonstrate infallible character
and professionalism, and show a spirited focus on building a workforce to
support Coast Guard mission needs and the Coast Guard's Diversity and Inclusion
Strategic Plan. The selection, motivation, and training of the Recruiting work
force is a top priority to meet the Coast Guard’s human capital needs. Please
