During each of the Cleared Job Fairs held throughout 2010, participating security cleared job seekers were given the opportunity to vote for the nation’s top recruiting experience from a pool of employers and defense contractors seeking professionals with active security clearances.
Over 5,000 job seekers in the security cleared marketplace have since selected more than 120 recruiters from defense and intelligence government contractor companies as the best in the industry nationwide. “We want to show these chosen recruiters how much we appreciate their efforts,” says Kathleen Smith, CMO, ClearedJobs.Net. “It’s important to us that we take the time to appreciate our partners who work so hard.”
According to Smith, job fairs can be a trying experience on both the recruiters and the job seekers. “By making this a pleasurable experience, everyone wins. The recruiters recognized as ‘best’ are those who spend extra time with the job seekers to help them better understand the opportunities with their companies. These ‘best’ recruiters often go above and beyond to assist job seekers with their career search,” says Smith. “The program is very well received by both the job seekers and the recruiters at our Cleared Job Fairs.”
Recruiters from the following companies were selected:
- Booz Allen Hamilton
- General Dynamics IT
- L-3 Communications-Global Security & Engineering Solutions
- L-3 Communications-STRATIS
- Lockheed Martin
- Northrop Grumman
- Transportation Safety Administration
