Best Recruiters of 2009 – More than 5,000 Security Cleared Job Seekers Vote to Recognize Top Recruiting Talent at Cleared Job Fairs for 2009
At each of the Cleared Job Fairs held throughout 2009, participating security cleared job seekers have been given the opportunity to vote for the top recruiting experience. These “Best Recruiter” votes are made by job seekers with security clearances who take the time to assess their experience with recruiting teams of major defense and government contractors and other employers in the security cleared marketplace that exhibit at the Cleared Job Fairs.
Last year, more than 4,500 security cleared job seekers voted for Best Recruiter. In 2009, ClearedJobs.Net anticipates job seeker votes for Best Recruiter may reach or exceed 5,000. “The Best Recruiter program provides our community of security cleared job seekers the opportunity to vote on various factors including which recruiters take the most time to listen, ask the right questions and give the most practical, sound advice,” says Kathleen Smith, CMO ClearedJobs.Net. “It’s important for our job seekers to feel that their opinions, feedback and input with regard to their experiences with specific employers and individual recruiters alike can and does make a significant impact in the security cleared recruitment community.”
Smith adds, “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 miss lunch, don’t take breaks and talk with every job seeker who comes to their booth,” says Smith. “It is an honor to have these hard working recruiters at our Cleared Job Fairs.”
All the Best Recruiters of 2009 will be celebrated at a special invitation-only event December 10th in Crystal City. “We want to show these recruiters how much we appreciate and value their efforts,” says Smith. “It is important for us to take the time to appreciate our partners who work so hard and who make every effort to assist job seekers as they search for security cleared employment opportunities.”
