Security Clearance Careers Podcast


Recruiting Myths that Service Members Believe

Some recruiters in the national security space also serve as active-duty military spouses or mentors, and being a part of the military family ecosystem can influence the way they recruit in a positive way, but also lend insight into some of the no-nos that happen in the cleared networking space – perhaps due to educational gaps that service members are unaware of when reaching out to recruiters; things that are just not taught in Transition Assistance Programs (SAP).

Jessica Reynolds currently serves as a technical recruiter in the cleared space, but also supports the US Navy as a Command Ombudsman, transition consultant, and a mentor for our friends at Hiring our Heroes. With her experience as a military spouse and working with service members, we dive into some tips to help guide those transitioning and veterans that might be navigating the job seeking journey on this episode of ClearedCast.
