DC Nonprofit Urges Govt Agencies to Step Up Recruitment of College Grads

1 min read

OfficeThe Partnership for Public Service has recommended government agencies establish recruitment campaigns to attract more college graduates into civil service, FierceGovernment reported Tuesday.

Ryan McDermott writes the Washington-based nonprofit analyzed data from a 2013 U.S. survey of 37,874 college students and found that only 2 percent were interested in federal jobs.

More than one-third of respondents seeking to join the federal workforce said they do not fully understand how to apply for positions via USAJobs.gov.

“To compete with the private and nonprofit sectors for the brightest students, federal managers and recruiters need a nuanced understanding of college students’ interest in, and perceptions of, federal employment,” the PPP said in its report obtained by FierceGovernment.
