easier  to  initiate.  Referral  sources  are  important.  More important than who you ask for referrals, though, is how you ask for them. We’ll discuss both sources and technique  in  the  following  paragraphs. Referral Sources Virtually anyone can become a source of referrals. All you have to do is ask. Some sources, however, will have more frequent contact with the quality market you are  looking  for. DEP PERSONNEL. – Your best sources of referrals are personnel in the DEP. They have already decided to go Navy and can have considerable influence with their peers. Some may readily provide referrals but most will need some motivating toward that end. The Delayed Entry   Program (DEP)   Leadership   Manual, COMNAVCRUITCOMINST  1133.7,  provides  informa- tion on establishing a written DEP advancement plan based on referrals. There are also a variety of “Who do you  know?”  sheets  that  help  to  trigger  the  DEP member’s memory when providing referrals. Figure 6-2 WHO DO YOU KNOW? This  is  a  good  referral  generating  exercise  to  use  at  delayed  entry  program  (DEP)  meetings  or  anytime  you  have  a  DEP member who has trouble thinking of people to refer. Use five or six questions from the list at a time. After the DEP members have provided names, let them know that these names could be the starting point you need to start working for them to help them reach their referral/advancement goal. Blueprint to find out if the names can be bona fide referrals. Besides qualifying questions, ask about their  plans,  interests,  and  hobbies.  Use  your  imagination  to  add  to  the  list.  Some  questions  identify  physical  or  mental  attributes, benefit needs, and others are just for fun and memory jogging. Good luck and have fun with it. 1. Who is your best friend? Worst enemy? 2. Who was the best student in math class? Science class? 3. Who was the best all-around athlete in your graduating class?
