Career coach shares insight on joining federal workforce

June 11, 2010 — How do you find a federal job? How do you navigate the federal hiring process? What does all this talk about cutting federal pay mean for your salary negations? Where are the federal jobs?

This week on FedTalk, Lily Whiteman, federal career expert and federal employee, joins host Debra Roth to answer questions on how to land a federal job.

She will also discuss the hiring reforms proposed by the White House, such as the elimination of KSAs and the move to resumes, and what these changes mean if you’re applying for a federal job.

The show will also focus on the recent debates in Congress and the media about federal pay and how that will affect salary negotiations for potential federal hires.
