ClearedJobs.Net Supports Anonymous Cyber Behavior Survey

February 9, 2009 Falls Church, Virginia — ClearedJobs.Net has announced today its support for a government sponsored survey being administered to understand the various types of activities people engage in while connected to the Internet — otherwise known as "cyber behaviors." Specifically, Personnel Decisions Research Institutes (PDRI) has contracted with ClearedJobs.Net to advertise a web—based survey on its web site and to its community of security cleared professionals in February 2009 to solicit information regarding how often individuals perform a variety of behaviors while online.

PDRI first contacted ClearedJobs.Net in July of 2008 and requested a proposal on ways to advertise the survey to the job board’s community of security cleared job seekers. While PDRI had contacted several vendors in the security cleared job board industry, it was most impressed with ClearedJobs.Net for their creative and value—added proposal. "It was important to us to look at a variety of ways to communicate this program to the community of security cleared professionals because of the unique nature of the study and what it is trying to accomplish," says Kathleen Smith, Chief Marketing Officer for ClearedJobs.Net.

ClearedJobs.Net developed a package of banner ads, newsletter articles and job fairs for the PDRI proposal. “ClearedJobs.Net has been more than accommodating to our project needs,” explained Deirdre Lozzi of PDRI. “During their most recent job fair, Kathleen Smith and her staff actively recruited job seekers to stop by our table to learn about the survey. Many of the job fair participants saw the value in what we are trying to accomplish, and were eager to complete the survey of cyber behaviors.”

The cyber behaviors range from common activities (such as purchasing items online) to hazardous activities (such as password sharing or using a misleading identity online). Because obtaining honest survey responses is absolutely crucial, the cyber behavior survey is completely anonymous — the survey does not solicit any identifying information (name, address, phone number, etc.) that can be associated with any given individual’s responses.

Those possessing a government security clearance (any level of clearance) are strongly encouraged to participate. If you are interested in participating in this research, please access the cyber benhavior survey.

PDRI will be exhibiting at the next Cleared Job Fair which will be held on February 19th in Tysons Corner along with other cleared facilities employers such as General Dynamics IT, Northrop Grumman, BearingPoint, AT&T Government Solutions, Everest Technology Corporation, BAE Systems, SAIC, ArcSight, Advanced Concepts, Lockheed Martin, Oberon, Raytheon and many others.
