Review:

DefenseTalent's key feature is its database of candidates who have security clearances. This makes it easier for businesses to find suitable talent without the hassle of doing background checks.

Filtering a job search by the location "Canada" will yield jobs targeted at Canadians. Our current search yields no results when filtered by "Canada," although jobs listed in Canada are present when filtered by "All Locations." This might point to a faulty search engine, making it difficult for Canadian job seekers to find jobs targeted at them.

Highlights:

  • DefenseTalent uses ActiveHire to post jobs, reaching a wide network of candidates.
  • It is more affordable than general Canadian job posting sites, such as Aerojobs.ca, whose pricing starts at C$325.00 for a single job post.
  • The site contacts candidates who match a job post.
  • ActiveHire ensures that its resume database is accurate and contains no duplicates.
  • Employers can search the site's candidate database for an added fee.
  • There are millions of active and passive candidates in the resume database.
  • Employers can get exposure at hiring events for an additional fee.

Shortcomings:

  • Prices are not listed in Canadian dollars.
  • The website is not available in French.
  • The site lacks advanced hiring tools, such as social media sharing, applicant tracking, and pre-screening questions.
  • The search portal for job seekers is complicated, which may turn them away.

Reputation:

DefenseTalent has no Better Business Bureau accreditation and we were unable to find any reviews online.

DefenseTalent vs. Aerojobs.ca:

The most apparent difference between the two is that Aerojobs.ca actually has a Canadian website, whereas DefenseTalent only lets companies post jobs to a Canadian location via its main site. Users can view Aerojobs.ca in French, too. Prominent Canadian businesses use Aerojobs.ca, making it the wiser choice for a Canadian business.

DefenseTalent vs. Job Bank:

Job Bank is a popular government-run job posting platform. While the site may offer free job posting, employers looking to hire staff with security clearance may find hiring more difficult as it is a general job posting site. DefenseTalent's niche focus and various recruitment options may give employers a more focused approach to hiring personnel.

DefenseTalent vs. LinkedIn:

LinkedIn has a much wider reach than DefenseTalent, but DefenseTalent has the advantage of being dedicated to jobs in the defense and aerospace industry. Its essential service is background-checking candidates. LinkedIn does not offer this feature. DefenseTalent is suitable for companies who want to hire a security cleared worker.
