TALKING TO A RECRUITER
The job of military recruiters is to find qualified candidates for their respective services and provide them with information about — and reasons for — joining the Army. Expect recruiters to talk about opportunities in the Army in positive but realistic terms.
But don’t be surprised if a recruiter wants to talk to both you and your parents together. You should discuss such goals with them, before they meet with a recruiter. That way everyone is on the same page. Also, for those wondering how to talk to a recruiter, developing specific questions prior to the meeting is an excellent and recommended way to prepare.
It’s a recruiter’s job to answer any and all questions. If you ask a question the recruiter can’t answer personally, he or she will get back to you with the answer. Prepare a written list of questions before your visit. If you are unsure what to ask the recruiter, here are some questions to get you started.
