Feds to Hire 600,000 Employees by 2012

600,000 over three years. 273,000 deemed mission-critical. That’s how many people the Partnership for Public Service projects the federal government will need to hire by 2012 to fill growing needs as well as replacing a baby-boomer workforce set to retire. These numbers and other hiring projections are listed just in time for some Labor Day reading in the third edition of the Where the Jobs Are report issued on Thursday.

    Hello, I know for a fact the Social Security Administration has to fill positions in all areas. Go to SSA.gov to learn more about these jobs. If you have a second language such as Chinese, Arabic, Spanish, Tagalog or other you are in luck. Sincerely Anita

    Though I am a Federal Employee of 26 years, I would like to know where these openings will be. I would love to change Departments. A big problem has been having to know someone to get in. I had hoped this site would be a good place to help locate a new position.

    In 1995, I had to take a hardship from the U. S. Treasury Department to take care of my brother who died in 2005 and my mother who died in 2007. My brother died of the AIDS virus and my mother died from complications of congested heart failure due to a massive stroke. I worked an an career-conditional employee for nine years with a better than average performance each year. What can I do to be recertified to get any job back with the U. S. government. I am now able to relocate anywhere. I have no one here in Alabama but myself. Thanks!

    On another point, if the government is truly serious about hiring veterans and disabled veterans, it would set up positions to work from home. About 95% of the disabled veterans I have seen, can't physically go into a workplace due to psychological issues or physical issues, yet if they could work from home on their computers, they actually could function as a viable employee.

    The government should also monitor the Veteran's organizations who are supposed to help us veterans find work. I have applied to them, yet all they do is direct me to a couple of websites and do practically nothing to assist me in finding work. I might get a phone call from them once in 3 months saying they found a job for me, only to find out it has nothing to do with my skills. Veterans need hands on, personal, assistance in getting employed. Simply giving out website addresses is not what I would consider being a Veterans' Assistance representative. GOOGLE can do all of that within seconds.

    The government is talking a lot about veterans assistance programs, but those programs are far from what we truly need.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    Also, we are not "whining", we are simply stating the facts of the job-seeking community. It's obvious that the people complaining about our 'whining" already have government jobs, which we can't get. it would be nice to know how you got your government job...IE: Did you have family members or friends, who were already in the system, get you into that job or interview?......Do you have a bachelors Degree or higher?.... Did you have enough money to re-locate?

    A lot of us veterans don't have Bachelor Degrees, or money to re-locate, or friends and family inside the system already.
