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.
Helping put veterans, wounded warriors, and those with targeted disabilities back to work is key to the ClearanceJobs mission. Veterans represent 73% of our database, so we make it easy for recruiters to find and hire them.
We offer a couple of simple ways to find and connect with diversity candidates.
Our five dedicated veteran and wounded warrior groups make it easy to target veterans from the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force. Recruiters can broadcast hiring needs to the 25K+ group members or connect directly one-to-one.
Search our database with the keyword search feature, using words and phrases like “wounded warrior,” “10 points,” “30 percent” or “disabled.” Don’t forget to also include keywords that describe ideal candidates in your job postings as well.
Supporting veterans, wounded warriors, and others with targeted disabilities is important to us, which is why we stay active in the cleared community—both online and offline.
We offer a wide range of opportunities for veterans through partnerships with 10+ federal and military sites like FederalJobs.net and GlobalSecurity.org. For diversity candidates, we partner with HispanicJobsite.com, AsianAmericanJobsite.com, Jobs4Women.net and AfricanAmericanJobsite.com.
Through education and outreach to 125 military Transition Assistance Programs, we help veterans make a smoother transition from military service to meaningful civilian roles.
We’re proud to be a fellowship sponsor with The Mission Continues, a military charity committed to empowering veterans through community service. The fellowship program has served more than 65 communities through 1,635 fellows and 1,048 nonprofits. Including our sponsorship of the Army Ten-Miler, our annual contributions to these and other veteran-outreach programs total $30,000.
If you are a federal contractor with more than $10,000 in government business, you need to be OFCCP compliant. ClearanceJobs makes it easy with our OFCCP Resource Center, which is packed full of information on how to create an OFCCP-friendly hiring program. Or, purchase our OFCCP Product, and we’ll handle it for you.
