The Insider’s Network

We’ve been networking with defense and aerospace firms long before you knew you were ready to make a career change. When you partner with us, we plug you into an existing network of companies that don’t always post to job boards. You will have access to unique opportunities throughout the industry – opportunities you won’t find on your own.

Thank You For Calling

We’ve picked up that old book on customer service, dusted it off, and put it back into practice. How many times have you left a message and never heard back? We don’t let you fall through the cracks. It sounds so simple yet so few know how to do it right. At Defense Search, customer service is our priority.

Frequently Asked Questions

We want our relationship with you to be straightforward and clear from the beginning. Here are some questions we regularly answer.

  • What types of placements do you handle?

    Defense Search focuses exclusively on the defense and aerospace industries. We place people at all levels and can help if you’re looking to be placed directly or if you’re looking for contract or contract-to-hire work.

  • How does the placement process work?

    Once we receive your resume, we will review our current job openings to see if we have a match for your background and contact you to let you know what we’ve found. If we don’t have an appropriate position, we will keep your resume on file for future positions.

  • How long will it take to get a job?

    Every job search is different. Every candidate’s timeline is unique. We pride ourselves on making matches that last and ensuring that your next career move is meaningful for you and the client company.

    We offer a range of benefits – from access to health coverage, paid holidays, bonuses and more – to attract and retain the best employees.

  • Is there a referral bonus?

    Yes. Please contact us for details.

  • TalentZok? Zokceed? How does this relate to Defense Search?

    Defense Search is a part of the TalentZok family of companies. Our specialized divisions focus in different areas and industries and all are dedicated to helping people succeed (zokceed in our language!).

  • TalentZök? That’s a unique name.

    We are a specialized search firm and Zök is a derivative of the Swedish word for “search”. And honestly…we thought the name was cool. We love helping people succeed (zökceed in our world!).
