Hiring reform for the entire federal workforce, not just cyber security positions, is the topic of a public meeting the OPM planned for Friday. Participants have been asked to discuss “whether normal, competitive hiring is an effective avenue for bringing recent college graduates into the federal workforce,” according to the Federal Register.
The hearing follows a May 11 directive from Obama, in which he said “the federal government must recruit and hire highly qualified employees, and public service should be a career choice for the most talented Americans.”
The current hiring process is so frustrating that it turns off many potential employees.
