  • Attn Recruiting Officers...

    For those of you that are in charge of recruitment for your agency, I am wondering what makes an applicant stand out to you. What do you look for on an application? With so many different applicants applying for sometimes a couple positions what makes you put an applicant "at the top of the stack" or take a closer look at his application/background?

    The last agency I applied with, I called the Major who was in charge of the hiring every week until I got a sorry its been filled.

    The agency I just applied with is super tough to get on with. Im thinking about putting in an application every week until I get either a yes or no. I dont want to get aggravating but I was told sometimes thats how you have to be. Thoughts?

    I guess Im asking what can I do to make myself more "memorable" or "marketbale" to the recruting officer?

    I have a little over 1.5 yrs experience, working on a CJ degree, no military.

      It is really going to depend on the department. Each department has its own atmosphere and the recruiter will usually try to match the applicant who is closest to that environment.
      Sometimes the administration wants change----so they look for someone "different".

      To stand out:
      Make a good first impression. Be thorough in filling out your application NEATLY. A short concise cover letter or resume that doesn't give your entire life story. Suit or at least dress clothing at ANY contact with the department (unless for a PT test).

      To really stand out:
      Bother the recruiter weekly with calls, emails, multiple questions., or multiple applications.

      ^^^^ That would be a good reason for me to circular file your application.
      Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

      My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS
