Today was a pretty decent day. It started off with a quick class. And then a briefing/class on ourselves. The other day we took a survey answering 144 questions on ourselves and someone took those results and put them into a report type of thing. It was called TAIS, some may have done this before. So that was pretty cool to see where our strengths and weaknesses are. You have to see it and do it yourselves, its a little to complicated for me to explain. After that was lunch. After lunch we had a class on our Recruiter Operating Procedures (ROP) which is basically our monthly/weekly/daily schedule that we have to keep track of to get credit for our prospecting efforts. It also allows us to see what it takes to put 1 person in the Army. By some simple math it shows us exactly how many people we talk to and test and make it to the Army. So you may talk to 50 people a month and of those only 1 or 2 end up joining. So that was kinda cool.

The only other thing we really did the rest of the day was to work on our certificates for Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Outlook. I guess you have to have a certificate from each of those to be a recruiter. Its all good though, nothing to hard. No PT tomorrow thank god, but we do have our 2nd week test, so that should be fun.

You'll have plenty of time. Class is normally out between 1630-1700. The rest is yours until the next morning.

What version and skill level of Microsoft office are you certifying on? I'm guessing it's from Army e-learning, Skillport?

I think it is the newer of Microsoft Office. But I can't be sure. It's on the Recruiting and Retention School website. www.rrs.army.mil.
