Announcing the RAPP XXV Recruitment Contest!

Hey RAPPers, get involved in the RAPP XXV Recruitment Contest!

From the data we collect during the application process, we know that word of mouth is our strongest recruitment tool. The information tables, flyers, classroom visits, announcements at trainings/meetings, and website are all important – but we know that most folks who join RAPP did so after hearing about it from people they know.

I want to do everything I can to encourage RAPPers to help with spreading the word about RAPP. So, I’m offering a recruitment contest to give us all a little extra motivation!

There are two ways to win an awesome RAPP gift-pack!
1. The person who recruits the most people who complete an interview.
2. Random drawing – for each person you recruit that completes an interview, your name will be entered in a drawing.

You can only win one RAPP gift-pack. With the random drawing, even if you recruit just one person you still have a chance to win!

What do I win?

These gift-packs will continue to grow as I collect random cool stuff. At the point, we know they’ll include:
· Reusable shopping bag
· RAPP buttons
· Random UC giveaways (pens, write-erase boards, t-shirts, doo-dads, and whatnots)
· $25 Bearcat Cash on your UCID*

*If you’re not currently a UC student with an active UCID, we’ll work something out for the same amount.

How do I win?

There are two points during the application at which applicants write down how they heard about RAPP: when they first contact us; for their written application. If your name is listed at either of those points and the applicant completes an interview, this counts as you having recruited them.

Applicants can list more than one person – in that case, both people get full credit.

We wrap up interviews on October 9th and announce who was accepted to each group on October 10th. I’ll also announce the RAPP recruitment contest winners on the 10th.

How do I recruit people?

Keep your eye on the RAPP and RAPPORT listservs and this blog – I’ll periodically send/post reminders on how to spread the word about RAPP.
