Callidus Technologies, LLC Fills Employment Need by Partnering with Military Job Placement Firm Bradley-Morris, Inc.
Callidus found itself experiencing a high-growth period, due in part to a demanding energy market as well as increased environmental awareness and legislation. While it is a technology-based firm, it seeks employees to fill a whole spectrum of positions within engineering, sales, project management, manufacturing and purchasing. The technical skills that are required to work in this niche industry are often difficult to find as the specific competencies, aptitude and drive are not typically taught in schools.
Adaptability is important as well: An employee at Callidus may work on cradle-to-grave projects during one portion of the work day, and sell customized engineering equipment to international customers in Russia, China, Mexico, Brazil or Nigeria in the next portion.
Callidus has adopted the strategy of targeting skilled, accomplished job seekers who fit the company’s culture. Experience has shown them that from executive level management to individual contributors, former military personnel undergoing military separation fit this mold. To this end, they have partnered with Bradley-Morris, Inc. (BMI), the largest military job placement firm in the U.S., to assist them in accessing and on-boarding these candidates. Former military personnel offer the character, skills and initiative the company actively seeks out.
The partnership between BMI and Callidus has been very successful. To date, Callidus has hired more than 25 BMI candidates undergoing military separation. Many have been promoted through the ranks including upper level project engineering managers, sales directors, senior design engineers, and the Oklahoma factory manager.
“Bradley-Morris is helping to build Callidus. That’s a fact.”
