LANL NEWS RELEASE
The recently relaunched lanl.jobs provides a more streamlined application experience and a more holistic view of what it is like to work at Los Alamos National Laboratory and live in Northern New Mexico.
“We want to give potential candidates complete information so that they can make a more informed decision about roles to apply for,” said Talent Acquisition Strategist Jennifer Bennett.
An impressive start
In the first 10 days of the website’s launch lanl.jobs had more than 14,000 unique user visits and spent an average of 14.5 minutes on the site.
“To put that in perspective, people spent an average of 2.5 minutes on our old careers website,” said Bennett. “This indicates that they are spending time ingesting the content and learning about the Lab, the people, the benefits and the location.”
A new “talent community” is available on the lanl.jobs careers pages; it allows potential candidates to signal their interest in working at the Lab and provide their resume, skill set and type of job they are looking for. (Submitting a resume through the Talent Community does not replace the application process.)
On the back end, the Lab’s recruiters and hiring managers can use the talent community as a sourcing tool to search for and contact potential candidates.
A new veteran’s career website — lanl.jobs/creative/veterans — includes a new military skills jobs converter that matches skills acquired in the military to jobs at the Lab. Similarly, the veterans’ website also has a jobs converter for military spouses and partners, which allows them to match their skills with jobs at the Lab.
Other features include a video of Lab employees describing their workplace in their own words and updates on job fairs and other hiring events where interested job-seekers can meet with Lab recruiters in person.
Spread the word
“We would love for folks to visit the site, check it out and share it with their friends, community members and alma maters to increase awareness of all the great jobs and opportunities at the Lab,” said Bennett.
