Army National Hiring Days will take place June 30–July 2. The goal is to bring in 10,000 new soldiers.
During the three-day event, Army leaders, units, recruiters and community partners across the country will focus on encouraging individuals to explore the Army’s 150 career paths and highlight the benefits of service, including health care, retirement pay and training and education opportunities. This push comes after the COVID-19 pandemic forced Army recruiters to rely heavily on virtual recruiting and communications since mid-March.
“The last three months have challenged America, and our Army has been part of the team working to fight this pandemic together,” Muth said.
As recruiters switched to virtual recruiting, “we were very lucky to have a heavy presence on social media,” Muth said. But as recruiters resume working in recruiting stations, they have some catching up to do, he said.
“Are we behind? Yes, we are … but we’re close, and we’ve got momentum going,” he said. “Army National Hiring Days is to allow for us to get and make up that ground.”
