Recruiting in the Cleared Environment: What makes it different?

Recruiting in the Cleared Environment: What makes it different?
October 24, 2012 at 2:00 - 3:00 PM ET
Trecia Greenstreet, Account Manager(Pontoon Solutions)
Recruiting cleared professionals continues to be a challenge, but is it more challenging than recruiting in a commercial environment for non-cleared professionals? How are recruiters and their companies staying competitive? These are the questions we will discuss in more detail during the presentation. In our research we identify what some of the primary challenges are that recruiting professionals are confronted with in the defense and intelligence community, and how you can inevitably lose a great candidate. We also discuss how the competition on talent in the cleared community is based on clearance and not on competencies.

The challenges we discuss include contingent offers and possible variables included in contingent offers. We discuss how competition on talent in the cleared community is based on clearances and not skills. This tends to leave entitlement in the candidate. We also touch upon how clearance processing times have improved, but still prove to be the common delay in hiring candidates, and a consistent frustration amongst hiring managers.

We will review recent studies with regards to how the decrease in clearance processing time has surprising not changed how recruiters identify candidates. Just when you think you might get a break, you still find yourself resorting to the same processes and resources to get results. Many hiring managers and recruiters would still rather identify a candidate who already holds an active clearance.

In conclusion, we will discuss how some organizations are really taking an innovative approach to attract and maintain cleared professionals. It includes strategies referred to as "greening" and a "hire-in-place" offer. It may not resolve all the challenges, but is proving to stay competitive and be successful.
