Government Job Report - Top Hiring Federal Agencies (November 2009)


The Government Job Report is a new monthly feature on GovCentral. At the beginning of every month, GovCentral will publish its rankings of the federal agencies with the highest number of current job openings.

As you’ll notice, the top 5 ranked agencies for this month are either branches of the military or work with veterans. We based the ranking based on current openings for civilian employment, not active-duty military service.

We thank you for visiting GovCentral and want to make this report a valuable resource for you.

    Unless it's found elsewhere on this website, would it be possible to show some trending on the total or average number of applicants (qualified vs highly qualified) for various types of jobs by agency? This would provide some great insight as an applicant, especially someone like me trying to get into the government mid-career from the private sector. Thank you for starting this report! Look forward to seeing additional data.
