Meet MVM Corporation

MVM’s Assistant Project Manager of Security Services for the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD, Steve Smith, called in early April seeking to hire professional, experienced security guards for MVM’s federal contract to provide secure facility services on-site at NIH.

Because MVM needed to fill a very large number of full-time and part-time positions, MontgomeryWorks recommended a series of combined Job Forum/ Recruitment events preceded by a preliminary advertising campaign designed to generate excitement among MontgomeryWorks’ 300 + workforce development partners and public falling in the right categories for pay scale, minimum requirements, and certifications for these positions.

On May 7, 2014, the first event surpassed expectations with an intake of 126 registered candidates for the initial Forum/Recruitment event. The second event, on May 14, scored even more candidate with an intake of 190 individuals, and 54 candidates returned on May 19 for follow up interviews.

All of the recruiters from MVM were very gratified with the turnout and with the quality of the majority of candidates. MVM is still in the process of final interviews and background checks but is confident they will be able to satisfy their hiring objectives from the Job Center’s recruitment campaign as indicated in the memo below from Steve Smith, the Assistant Project Manager for the MVM /NIH Security Services program.

“In the past, our company had conducted job fairs at local hotel conference rooms for 200 or more applicants. This experience proved costly in renting conference rooms. We were still required to get the word out to potential job seekers. On the day of the event, we still had to organize and orchestrate all the events of the job fair. That entire experience was tedious and exhausting. Our experience with MontgomeryWorks was the complete opposite. MontgomeryWorks had facilities to use. Their location at the Wheaton Westfield Mall was metro-friendly and completely accessible. Their staff was professional, courteous, and most importantly, able to anticipate the recruitment needs of employer and job seeker alike. This ability to put the employer and the job seeker together in the same room and at the same table has made MontgomeryWorks an indispensable “go-to” partner for all our future recruiting events.”
