ClearanceJobs Launches 'Cleared Network' Service

Private online service combines specialized security job board with benefits of social networking

NEW YORK, June 24, 2010 -- ClearanceJobs.com, the leading online career resource for professionals with active federal security clearance, today unveiled “The Cleared Network,” a private online service that combines the best of two worlds: a specialized job board with the most popular benefits of social networking. The new service presents clients with an innovative way to connect, interact and exchange ideas with the largest community of security-cleared professionals available online who are open to career opportunities. The Cleared Network can be accessed at ClearanceJobs.com.

In addition, The Cleared Network offers the opportunity for employers and their recruiters to promote their corporate and personal brands with robust company and individual profiles. These profiles can include company news, videos, photos, hiring needs, event calendars, and more. The integration of social media content enables employers and security-cleared professionals to learn more about each other in a highly efficient manner.

"The Cleared Network represents a significant step forward in the recruitment of security-cleared professionals,” said Evan Lesser, Managing Director and Founder, CleararanceJobs.com. “This initiative will enable defense recruiters to address two major industry challenges. First, by networking directly with career-minded security-cleared professionals, defense industry recruiters can target their hiring efforts to a relevant, targeted audience. Second, time-to-hire will be reduced as recruiters make smarter hiring decisions by accessing additional data on candidates and communicating with them both instantly and in real-time.” Mr. Lesser added, “For security-cleared professionals open to career opportunities, they can finally build deeper, long-term relationships directly with those recruiters responsible for hiring.”

The features offered through The Cleared Network create an opportunity for personalized branding and one-to-one communication for security-cleared professionals and recruiters. For example, companies can highlight events, products, job offerings and corporate culture to generate interest and educate security-cleared candidates. Recruiters can benefit by using their personal profile as a “virtual business card” to develop their individual brand and introduce themselves to security-cleared professionals while highlighting current and ongoing hiring needs. In addition to easily adding cleared professionals to their networks via a single mouse click, companies can communicate within their networks via real-time chat or instant messaging.

Leveraging the value offered by social channels around the internet, The Cleared Network enables recruiters to integrate their news, RSS feeds, videos and other data into their profiles via automated content feeds for hands-off updates. The system also allows for both companies and candidates to display links to external websites that promote their presence on the social web.
