It is not another dreary conference about “How to Hire the Best People.”
Instead, a Lucas Group Military Hiring Conference offers a low-risk, high-reward opportunity to meet with accomplished candidates that fit your criteria. There are no booths to set up, no attendance fees to pay, no culling through hundreds of hopefuls on the off chance one will be close to what you need.
A Slate of Qualified Candidates
When your company has a position to fill—for instance, a production supervisor or a project manager—Lucas Group uses your parameters to furnish a pre-selected slate of qualified and interested candidates. Lucas invites these candidates to meet with you for face-to-face interviews. It’s a classic win-win: Companies are interested in specific applicants based on their needs, and applicants are interested in specific companies based on their skills.
After the interviews, both the candidates and the companies provide feedback and rank their interest in each other. Lucas then assists you through the rest of the hiring process and helps coordinate follow-on interviews. Participating in the Lucas Military Hiring Conference is risk free to you. Other than the time you spend interviewing top-notch prospects, your only costs are hotel and travel expenses. Lucas Group has been hosting military hiring conferences with great success since the 1980s, and attending companies have historically taken on least one job-seeker more than 50 percent of the time.
These meet-ups are a remarkably efficient way to interview as many as 10 highly capable prospects over two days. Conferences are held in cities such as Jacksonville (with a large military presence) or Chicago (a desirable location to live), and about half of the interviewees are local to the area where the conference is, though some travel from the nearby region.
Military Veterans with Desirable Skills
Lucas Group has contacts at every U.S. military base around the world, creating a unique applicant pool filled with people that hiring managers have no access to. All the candidates are military veterans, with most transitioning directly off active duty. These veterans have anywhere from five to 20 years of leadership experience and are great fits within leadership teams in corporate America. Military candidates bring a strong work ethic, communication skills, a can-do attitude, and courage to any job they perform. These prospects can fill supervisory roles in production, operations, logistics, or maintenance. Others work as engineers or in project management, and many are also perfect for sales roles.
