Ready to Serve

Serving America through a presidential appointment is a great honor and responsibility. But, preparing to serve can be a complicated process and getting started early is important. Ready to Serve is a centralized resource that guides candidates through every step of the complex political appointment process.

The Partnership for Public Service is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that strives for a more effective government for the American people. Here’s how we do it:

Leadership Development

We’ve reached over 15,000 federal employees across 75 agencies through our training programs, 98% of whom have applied program lessons to their job.

Government Modernization

We’ve worked with Congress on 43 pieces of legislation enacted on key federal management issues and helped develop the government’s first unified shared services management system.

Employee Engagement

We’ve given over 200 briefings using our Best Places to Work data and honored over 500 outstanding federal employees through our Service to America medals.
