Each month, the Academy staff compiles the statistics about our recruiting and training for the fleet’s informational purposes. Let’s take a look at how we did as a fleet in September.
This first graph depicts the number of applications that we have received each month this year. Thanks in large part to a post on Reddit about our community, the month of September saw an amazing twenty-one new applicants! This is almost double the number from August and ties January as the largest number of new applicants in one month this year!
The following chart shows how our new members found us, according to their application:
This final graph shows how many people graduated from the Academy during the month of September. The fleet saw fourteen new graduates during September, which is nearly twice as many as we saw in August! This number includes two graduates who applied at the end of August and whose training did not conclude until the beginning of September. We also had four applicants whose training did not conclude until the beginning of October.
These new recruits are the lifeblood of our community. Without them, it becomes difficult to keep our ships fully crewed and even more difficult to grow the fleet. If you’d like to help us recruit more members and grow our fleet, you can join the Publicity Team using this form.
