The Federal Government Is Looking To Hire!
The federal government has over two million employees and many of them are baby boomers. As baby boomers retire, more government jobs and federal jobs open up for job seekers. By the year 2013, the federal government expects that 40 percent of its workforce will retire, leaving 800,000 jobs to be filled.
The federal government has a broad range of opportunities for students of any discipline, from biology to engineering. The job market may be tight in some places, but Washington’s biggest employer, the federal government, is recruiting new employees.
More than 100,000 jobs are currently listed, including opportunities in D.C., Maryland and Virginia with salaries between $48,000 and $69,000 per year. In the past, applicants had to wait five months or longer to get a federal job. The Office of Personnel Management, which is in charge of hiring, is trying to streamline the job application process. Officials are now working to cut down the paperwork and the waiting time. Check out government and federal jobs on MilitaryConnection.com.
