USAJOBS to Revamp Interface- by Elizabeth Oguntoye MPA Graduate Assistant
It’s been a long time coming! Finally, there have been talks from federal officials (more specifically Director Katherine Archuleta from theOffice of Personnel Management) about revamping its job board- USAJOBS. Director Archuleta wants to ensure that the USAJOBS platform would be a portal that applicants need and hiring managers find helpful. Part of the process will stem from using new technology tools to help agencies refine their recruiting efforts. For example, the new job board, set to be public in early 2016, will target unrepresented demographic groups, capture the increasingly short attention of young people and attract science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) applicants.
