Abstract : The feasibility of using an automated Army career guidance package to expand the recruiting market was investigated. The package was constructed from JOIN software currently used by Army recruiters and was delivered on JOIN equipment. Feasibility was assessed by career counselors on six campuses. The reactions of students and career counselors were favorable; however, the relatively low number of students (30) who used the system indicates the need for marketing studies before the expense of development and deployment are incurred. This report summarizes the work required for development.
