If you are motivated and perform at levels above average, the 452d AMW recruiting office is looking for recruiters to join their efforts in recruiting future Air Force members.

“The Recruit the Recruiter is an Air Force Reserve Command program that enlists March members to serve as recruiters in locations around the globe,” said Chief Master Sgt. Pamela Peté. “Recruiting is the best job and most fulfilling career field in the Air Force because you are afforded the opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives, which is very rewarding.”

Recruiting is not a typical eight-hour duty day. It is a special duty assignment, which will place members on active duty status for a minimum, three-year tour. Serving as a recruiter is rigorous and demanding, but very rewarding work, said Tech. Sgt. Holly Meyer, 452d AMW Reserve recruiter.

Recruiters are representatives of the pride, honor and standards for the military in the community. They visit high schools and work with the chamber of commerce and other community organizations to recruit potential Airmen.

“We are looking for enthusiastic, motivated members who perform above the status quo, “said Peté.

Reservists interested in applying to be a Recruiter can begin by contacting Chief Peté for an interview to see if they can qualify and meet prescribed requirements. Criterion for applicants includes the following:

• Must hold the rank of Senior Airman or above,

• Have completed Airman Leadership School,

• A minimum of one year in the Air Force Reserve, but no more than 16 years of active-duty time,

• Possess high moral standards, and

• Have a passing fitness score

Interested members will need to complete an application and schedule an interview. If successful, the application package will be forwarded to AFRC for approval. Once approved, members will attend an Evaluation Selection Course, a five-day training session to ensure selectees possess the necessary skills to perform recruiting duties.

Finally, after completing ESC, individuals will be sent to the six-week recruiting course at Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston, Texas, where they will be trained and evaluated on sales skills, phone labs, speech, writing and the Air Force selling system.

“The process of selecting recruiters is thorough because recruiters are recruiting the next Airmen who will make up our Air Force,” said Meyer

“When I meet young people and work with them to explore their interest in the Reserve, prepare them to join and then see them after they’ve completed basic training, it gives me a sense of fulfillment, to see how I’ve helped impact and change their lives,” said Meyer.

In addition to it being a rewarding and fulfilling career, becoming a recruiter also includes several other benefits including active-duty pay, special duty assignment pay, a supplemental clothing allowance, along with the annual clothing allowance and an out-of-pocket expense account.

For additional information regarding Recruit the Recruiter program, contact Chief Pamela Peté at 951-655-3751 or pamela.pete@us.af.mil.
