Summary of Internship

Being an intern at a U.S Army Recruiting Center has given me a unique opportunity to see the various aspects of what it takes to be a recruiter in the U.S Army. It is a friendly and inviting in the office and some of my duties in the office involve me talking to anyone that comes in the office talk to them while they wait for a recruiter. I always find paper and build profile packets for recruits when they decide that they want to commit to the U.S Army. Iím also responsible for measuring and taping future so they are not over the allowed body fat percentage and planning future soldier events. My mentor and I spend most of our time either at schools talking to students at schools of marketing at stores asking them if we could put our business cards in there store.
