How The Cleared Network Helps

Federal contracting today presents challenges, but billions in new contracts countinue to be awarded. To be competitive, defense recruiters need to stay connected with top talent, from the RFP phase (request for proposal) through delivery.

“You have to be able to pipeline the people and keep them warm, so to speak,” said Basil Aldaghstani, Engility. Many Department of Defense and intelligence community programs require the ability to engage candidates with proposal development and capture efforts, he noted. “There’s really no other way to get the candidates into these proposals and these efforts unless we’ve built a pipeline to begin with.”

Social recruiting features on the Cleared Network are the critical difference in helping to build that pipeline of candidates. Rather than just searching for resumes, recruiters can build a pool of qualified applicants with the required security clearances, and then tap into that network when the contract comes through.

“ClearanceJobs is a one-stop shop,” said Aldaghstani. “I don’t have to go through Facebook, I don’t have to go through Twitter, I don’t have to go through LinkedIn. I can just log on to my account and effectively reach those same Cleared Network candidates through the tools that are all in one hub for me on ClearanceJobs.”
