NRM Recruitment Flyer
The attached flyer was developed in 2010 as
part of a HQ Human Resources overhaul of the recruitment package from many
years ago. This flyer can be used at job fairs, college/university
recruitment programs or as a way to inform the public what we are looking
for in young men and women looking for careers in the Federal service. The
flyer can be downloaded and reproduced locally. Kudos go to Adam Tarplee
and Renee Stacey for their hard work and dedication in updating this
outstanding recruitment tool.
Recruitment and Hiring Strategies
Elsewhere in this Website we have discussed the value of long-term recruiting strategies to obtain the brightest and the best employees. South Pacific Division contracted with OPM to analyze their recruitment and hiring strategies. The reports offer recommendations for change and outline good management practices to accomplish that goal.
The first of the reports, the Recruitment Best Practices Report provides a comprehensive Executive Summary and background data focused on methodology, findings, and recommendations.
The second report Corporate Recruitment Image assesses the Corps' corporate image as it relates to recruitment and offers suggestions that would have a positive impact on the Corps' ability to attract quality job applicants.
Recruitment Handbook -- This recruitment handbook provides a good resource for those managers/supervisors on the recruiting trail for the best and brightest employees. This handbook explains hiring authorities, benefits, pay ect.
