Improving your Search Success in the Government Job Market

 

The Federal Government is one of the biggest employers in the National Capital Region. The combination of an aging workforce in the government and shrinking payrolls in the private sector makes the government a prime location to find an influx of job seekers. It can be a complicated process finding and applying for the right job. Job seekers who find themselves repeating the process may feel there's a "secret" to applying for a government job.

During this presentation, Ms. Chase will share her lessons learned and best practices collected from her experiences applying for and landing the right government job.Attendees will be equipped with keys to helpful information that can be applied to their job searching efforts.
