The Candidate Success Manager serves as a guide and advisor to military veterans (located across the country) as they engage and interview with potential employers.
The Candidate Success Manager (CSM) will be responsible for managing the relationships with our veteran candidates as they enter and progress through the academic phase of our program and in to the job search phase. This individual will assist candidates through the entire placement cycle; from resume, LinkedIn, and interview preparation to providing wise counsel during the hiring process, the CSM will “teach to fish” while providing exceptional customized advice and support to each candidate. Familiarity with military transitions is important, recruiting and/or HR experience is ideal, and a passion for helping veterans is key.
The Candidate Success Manager will be required to travel 3 to 5 weeks per year to attend live training sessions in Fort Worth, Texas where he or she will engage and assist veteran candidates – otherwise, this role is virtual and can be done from a home office. Although the role will be demanding, it offers work-time flexibility. The CSM may also periodically contribute his or her talents to the greater Tech Qualled team on new initiatives and assist with other core business activities such as candidate sourcing, conducting web-based interviews, and strategic partnership development.
Tech Qualled has a start-up culture that requires outside-the-box thinking, teamwork, initiative and commitment to our mission. We are looking for passionate ambassadors that can help enhance our brand and grow with the company. To apply, please reach out to Justin Ossola at firstname.lastname@example.org.
