MilitaryStars launches a new employer site to expand and enhance both online recruiting and hiring event activities. The company's Sourcing3 approach takes effective hiring practices and combines them into one fluid candidate pipeline to feed companies' hiring managers with highly sought after military talent. The company also announced the release of an industry whitepaper, "The Top 10 Things Your Competition Does Not Want You to Know About Hiring Former Military Professionals."

Sarasota, FL, November 16, 2008 --( MilitaryStars, the nation’s premier service for connecting transitioning and former military talent with corporate America, launched a new and improved employer site for companies wishing to tap into the second most renewable talent pool in the United States. is geared toward assisting companies that are looking to strengthen and diversify their workforces with the country’s most sought-after military heroes.

The new site highlights MilitaryStars’ proven Sourcing3© approach to aligning military-friendly companies with current candidate generation systems. Proven effective with over 95% of MilitaryStars’ current clients – including many Fortune 500 companies, government contractors and agencies, and thousands of varying sized companies with multiple openings - Sourcing3.combines the most effective traditional candidate sourcing tactics into a “One Cost, Unlimited Hires”© military recruiting solution that yields higher quality candidates for employers to hire while saving HR and recruiting departments valuable time and resources.

“We were first-time participants and to say we were blown away would be an understatement,” said a Bridgestone Firestone Retail Operations Recruiting Manager. “I am so torn whether to recommend to other companies. I would love to keep this to myself and be greedy with all the talent. If I am ever asked I will definitely recommend.”

Perhaps even more important for some companies, Sourcing3 works on the front end of the recruiting cycle and candidate pipeline, making it easy for employers with existing applicant tracking processes, EEOC accountability requirements, or a pre-existing candidate funnel to augment and enhance practices already in place.

MilitaryStars – itself founded and run by former military veterans, many of which are former military recruiters familiar with the Armed Forces’ manpower rotation – developed the Sourcing3 approach to ease the amount of wasted time employers spend sifting through unqualified resumes.

Comprised of online and print marketing, job postings, resume database access, and face-to-face interviews, Sourcing3 entails processes already used piece meal by most companies, but fluidly combines them into a linear process with each feeding the other to produce a higher quantity flow of candidates without losing desired quality. The result? More hires of higher quality candidates.

“I don’t know how you pulled it off, but in 10 or so years coming to the area for job fairs, this is the first time that it worked! Well done to all who had a hand in making this a great event.” - Konecranes

Sourcing3 begins by marketing regionally to candidates within a given area through online / print advertising and MilitaryStars’ own proprietary database of over 200,000 former military candidates fed and leveraged by over 15 years of relationships within the military transition market.

Client companies’ job openings and job postings are marketed to pre-registered candidates meeting specific criteria.

Employers receive access to the resume database of pre-screened candidates.

The process ultimately culminates in a one day, one location, “One Cost, Unlimited Hires” event. The face-to-face opportunity for employers to meet, screen, interview and test the highest qualified candidates is widely known and recognized by Talent Acquisition and Human Resources professionals as “The Cure for the Common Job Fair”.

What’s more, the greatest value of Sourcing3 is the bundling of all these candidate sourcing methods into one entire process that has been proven more efficient and cost effective than alternative methods.

In addition to the new employer site launch, MilitaryStars President Todd Hecht has published a first of its kind whitepaper. Entitled “The Top 10 Secrets America’s Best Companies Don’t Want You to Know About Hiring Former Military Professionals”, the research piece thoroughly outlines the real reasons military service members are so valuable to companies nationwide. Beyond the commonly known attributes and skills of our nation’s heroes, the whitepaper digs deeper to uncover the entire value-added that veterans bring to corporate America’s bottom line.
