Federal agencies are struggling to recruit and hire the vital talent needed to ensure our government’s health and security. Due to competition for top candidates and a deeply broken federal hiring process, many of the brightest employees in critical fields like cybersecurity, science, technology, engineering and math choose other employers over the federal government. Young people, who bring energy and creativity to the workplace is valuable, are vastly underrepresented compared to the broader labor market. And it is challenging for government to attract and hire mid- and senior-level talent from other sectors who offer fresh perspectives and innovations from other sectors to solve federal challenges.
We help federal agencies address these critical talent gaps by advocating for better policy, developing new hiring and recruitment strategies, and educating students, faculty, and career services professionals and job seekers about federal opportunities. In all, we work to remove the barriers that obstruct candidates at all experience levels from entering public service.
