ClearedJobs.Net Announces 2012 Best Recruiters

 Falls Church, Virginia, November 8, 2012 – ClearedJobs.Net, a veteran owned defense and intelligence career site and job fair company, announces its annual Best Recruiters in the security cleared community. At each Cleared Job Fair® security-cleared job seekers vote for the defense and government contracting employers that provide the best recruiting experience. The top three companies at each Cleared Job Fair are recognized as Best Recruiters.

The 2012 Best Recruiters are from the following cleared facilities employers:

Ball Aerospace, BAE Systems, General Dynamics-IT, HP, Invertix, Engility, Lockheed Martin,ManTech, MetroStar Systems, Minerva Engineering, Mission Essential Personnel, Northrop Grumman, SAIC, Standard Technology, Tanager, TexelTek, URS, Vykin, V-Tech Solutions

The full list of Best Recruiters is available on the Best Recruiter Wall of Fame.

“The Best Recruiter program honors and celebrates recruiting professionals who understand it is their personal brand and the brand of their employer they are sharing with job seekers. The program has become a focal point of the security cleared community to raise the bar for the candidate experience in this fiercely competitive market,” says Kathleen Smith, CMO, ClearedJobs.Net.

The job seeker experience is an important part of a company’s talent acquisition strategy, so many of the companies exhibiting at Cleared Job Fairs take the Best Recruiter competition very seriously. The recruiting teams who don’t win, take the time to evaluate what they can do better, and we are happy to see that some of those companies and recruiters have returned and have been voted Best Recruiter. Many companies award bonuses to teams who do win, and many of the recruiters list the award Best Recruiter on their resume or LinkedIn profile.

Smith adds, “The search for the perfect candidate and the perfect job is a trying experience and by making this a positive experience, everyone wins. The recruiters recognized as Best Recruiters are those who put their recruiting relationship with the candidates first. They understand that the experience they provide at the Cleared Job Fair will spread throughout the community and support their overall talent acquisition strategy. It is a privilege to have these Best Recruiters at our Cleared Job Fairs.”
