“Best Recruiters of 2008” Announced

December 1, 2008 Falls Church, Virginia — During each of the Cleared Job Fair held throughout 2008, participating security cleared job seekers were given the opportunity to vote for the nation’s top recruiting experience. Over 4,500 job seekers in the security cleared marketplace have since selected 100 recruiters from government contractor companies as the best in the industry nationwide.

The security cleared community is extremely competitive as the supply of professionals with security clearances is limited due to the security clearance process backlog. Companies seeking to hire professionals with security clearances use multiple sources to find professionals with security clearances including exhibiting at the Cleared Job Fairs produced by ClearedJobs.Net.

L-3 Global Security & Engineering Solutions, headquartered in Chantilly, VA, is one of this year’s “Best Recruiter” honorees. “Our team is so excited about being selected Best Recruiters. It is an honor to know that our hard work is recognized and appreciated by the job seekers,” says Brigit Freeman, Director of Employment, L-3 Global Security & Engineering Solutions.

“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 Kathleen Smith, CMO, ClearedJobs.Net. “It is an honor to have these hard working recruiters at our Cleared Job Fairs.”

Recruiters from the following companies were selected:

  • BAE Systems
  • Booz Allen Hamilton
  • CACI
  • Department of Homeland Security
  • General Dynamics IT
  • JL White and Associates
  • L-3 Global Security &Engineering Solutions
  • L-3 Communications (ISD)
  • Lockheed Martin
  • Northrop Grumman
  • RGS Associates, Inc.
  • SAIC

For the full list of companies and the recruiters selected coast-to-coast, see below.

All the Best Recruiters will be celebrated at a special invitation-only event on Friday, December 5th in Crystal City just before that day’s Cleared Job Fair. “We want to show these recruiters how much we appreciate their efforts. It is important to us to take the time to appreciate our partners who work so hard,” says Smith.
