Moving and Transitioning into Government

Postby Ric Weibl » Fri Feb 27, 2009 2:27 pm

Just participated in another of those conversations about the challenges ahead for the federal government workforce. You know the story, aging workers, a loss of technical expertise and more lucrative opportunities in private industry luring the younger folks. I did walk away with one resource that looks pretty solid - especially for those who would be seeking entry level or first jobs in government.

This guide ( offers a starting place, perhaps a few tools to help seekers learn the language and processes of the federal government hiring experience.

I would be interested to hear thoughts of those who do visit the site - was the information written at the right level for you? If you are in the employ of the federal government, does it ring true with your experience?
