OPM Launches USAJOBSRecruit.gov

New Website Promotes Agency Collaboration on Governmentwide Recruiting Efforts

Washington, DC - The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) launched USAJOBSRecruit.gov, a one-stop gateway to recruitment resources throughout the Federal Government. President Obama's Hiring Reform Initiative highlights the importance of recruiting and hiring top talent to better serve the American people. USAJOBSRecruit provides tools and guidance, and encourages collaborative development of best practices within the Federal recruiting community in a web-based platform. This new website will help ensure that HR professionals, recruiters, and hiring managers receive accurate and consistent information on recruiting and hiring in the Federal Government.

"USAJOBSRecruit will spur collaboration and innovation, developing and elevating the best strategies for recruiting the best and brightest Americans into government service," said OPM Director John Berry.  "This new web-based tool is a cost-effective, sustainable way for agencies to continually improve their recruiting for years to come."

The forums and blogs will serve as an online community where Federal employees with recruiting responsibilities can discuss recruiting challenges and solutions.

USAJOBSRecruit also features:

  • Information, resources and multi-media learning tools to ensure guidance is readily available to HR professionals, recruiters and hiring officials;
  • A ‘School Sorter' search tool for recruiters to find the right talents and skills;
  • The Federal Service Ambassadors Program for Federal employees interested in promoting the exciting careers available in the Federal Government; and
  • Knowledge sharing in the areas of workforce planning, recruiting strategies, marketing, and effectiveness.

To decide what to put on USAJOBSRecruit, OPM held focus groups of hiring managers and HR practitioners across the nation. The number one need expressed in the focus groups was for an online environment to discuss and share recruitment practices.
