How to Get the Best Recruiting Results on ClearanceJobs

Tips for Getting the Best Results on ClearanceJobs

Recruiters can’t afford to leave anything on the table amidst today’s tight marketplace. Make sure you’re getting the most out of your service, and take advantage of all the tools in the ClearanceJobs toolbox.

Here are several recruiter “hacks” you may not know about:

1. TARGET CANDIDATES VIEWING YOUR JOBS.

Candidates viewing your jobs have shown interest in your current job opening, so make sure you’re regularly checking who’s looking at your jobs.

2. TARGET CANDIDATES WHO VIEWED YOUR PROFILE.

Candidates who are at least a little familiar with you are more likely to respond. Make sure to check out who’s been checking you out. Pay particular attention to candidates who have ‘liked’ information you’ve posted on your profile.

3. USE MESSAGE .

Extend the reach of your message by simultaneously posting your message to Cleared Network groups.

4. USE INTELLISEARCH AND TRADITIONAL SEARCH.

Combine the powers of IntelliSearch and our traditional search for truly magical results.

Start by pasting your job description in the IntelliSearch field, and select clearance and geography. After you’ve run the IntelliSearch query, narrow your results further using any of our filter options, or if there is a skill or certification that is a must-have, enter that keyword or phrase in the search field.

5. ADD MULTIPLE TAGS ON CANDIDATES.

Associate multiple filters, or tags, with one candidate. For example, if you have a candidate who is a TS Software Engineer in the DC Metro, you can assign 3 separate tags to that candidate: “Top Secret” + “Software Engineer” + “DC Metro.” This candidate will come up any time you filter by “Top Secret” or “Software Engineer” or “DC Metro,” and will appear when you filter by all three of those tags combined.

6. CHAT WITH CANDIDATES LIVE.
