Federal Job Search

Would you like to work for the Federal Government but don’t know where to begin, or are frustrated by the process?

 

Ask a wide range of individual job seekers why they are currently seeking a career with the Government, or have in the past and you will undoubtedly hear a varied range of reasons. Some of the top responses are the desire to make a difference or play a role with regards to certain issue, or perhaps it is the job security and stability that many federal employees enjoy. Whatever the reason, the timing of your career search may work in your favor.

According to a July 10, 2014 article in the Washington Post by Lisa Rein, “Hiring into federal jobs has slowed to the lowest level in nine years, new government data shows, with just 76,735 new employees entering the federal workforce in fiscal 2013, a drop of more than 14.5 percent compared to the previous year”.* As the Baby Boomers reach retirement, many will be leaving their federal careers, but with the Federal workforce at an all time low, you will need insights and skills to compete for one of these highly sought after jobs.
