The Solution

BJ PPS routinely taps into the pool of recent college graduates having engineering degrees. To gain access to job seekers who possess an engineering degree combined with real “life skills” and a great work ethic, however, they turned to Bradley-Morris, Inc. (BMI) in order to benefit from BMI’s access to the perpetual military talent pool.

The Result

BJ PPS piloted a military recruiting program with BMI and the results were outstanding. As the company has expanded their military recruiting, BJ PPS has hired eight engineers from BMI to date and the company is highly pleased with BMI’s access to the perpetual military talent pool.

“When we attend Bradley-Morris ConferenceHire events, we typically see 10-14 potential candidates in a day,” said the BJ PPS representative responsible for interviewing BMI’s pre-screened and pre-matched job seekers. “Distinct qualities stick out in military candidates. They are disciplined, motivated and possess a level of maturity that stands out [among the rest],” said the BJ PPS Manager.

“During the BMI ConferenceHire event, it is easier for us
to whittle down the potential pool based on the candidate’s
attitude and enthusiasm. I have been very impressed with
BMI’s process and how it has worked for us.”
