Jacobs is currently looking for Network Administrators, Database Administrators, Systems Administrators, Systems Engineers, and Asset Managers.
Jacobs has a significant need for cleared professionals, both to hire immediately and to add to their recruiting pipeline.
Jason Boone leads central talent sourcing for Jacobs, a global engineering and innovation organization. Boone has seen success with attending ClearanceJobs events.
"We like that ClearanceJobs really vets the individuals that are on their profiles, that they have clearances or have recently had a clearance granted. That screening allows us to ensure that our recruiters are spending their valuable time screening candidates that meet the requirements we have for security clearances, whether that be secret, top secret, or polygraph cleared professionals," Boone explains.
Boone continues, "We started attending the events in particular because the virtual nature of the events gives us the opportunity for our recruiters to not have to travel, minimize time impact, and be able to talk to a lot of candidates at one time. What's really valuable is ClearanceJobs provides us with a download of all event registration data after the event. It allows us the opportunity to really actively engage with candidates before, during, and after the event. Because one of the things we know is that not every candidate who registers is able to attend, and we have the opportunity to engage those candidates who may not have been able to attend after the event that really gives us a much better candidate experience."
"And through that, we not only have been able to hire candidates that have come to the event, particularly those that are in highly cleared, highly sought after technical skills - but also to actively engage and build a pipeline of cleared talent for the future. We know that just so somebody has a clearance or attends a career event today doesn't mean that they're actively looking for a job today or ready to make a change. We believe in pipelining, developing a great long term relationship with our candidates, and really building consumable pipelines for our recruiters in the future."
