In today’s tough marketplace, there is no denying that cleared talent is at an all-time low. However, ClearanceJobs continues to see increased candidate registrations year over year. And, 80% of them are the coveted passive – meaning they’re currently employed, but open to hearing about new opportunities.
Cleared candidates are in high demand – not just from cleared companies, but non-cleared companies too. Even though they’re satisfied with their jobs and salary, they’re motivated to make a move for a higher salary. This means recruiters need to focus not only on acquiring new cleared hires – you need to focus on building your talent pipelines and retaining valued employees. ClearanceJobs has the suite of tools to help you do that.
We survey our candidates regularly, and they’ve told us:
Very or somewhat satisfied with their jobs
Somewhat to very likely to accept a new job in 2020
Received a non-cleared job offer in the last year – some received 3+ non-cleared offers
Cited higher pay as their main motivator for leaving the cleared industry
40% of our registered candidates either hear about us from a friend, a military transition office, or through networking.
ClearanceJobs enjoys a high search engine ranking, so when candidates search for security-cleared jobs or topics on Google, Yahoo, or Bing, our site is at the top of natural search results.
Jobs posted on ClearanceJobs are broadcast to a wide network of job aggregators, social networks, defense and military sites, and ClearanceJobs partners. We’re everywhere, so you don’t have to be.
ClearanceJobs uses traditional and non-traditional marketing to attract candidates, so you’re just as likely to see us on a YouTube segment as a billboard campaign in the D.C. Metrorail system. You can’t avoid us, and neither can candidates.
