  • Federal employees can now sign up to be recruiting ambassadors. This is one of several new approaches to improve how agencies hire employees. Federal News Radio reporter Jason Miller joins us with details of the new federal only features on USAjobs.gov.

  • There are some differences in opinion among leaders on the House Armed Services Committee on whether or not to grant the Defense Department's request to raise health insurance fees for military retirees. The committee will debate the issue next week when it meets to work on next year's Defense authorization bill. Federal News Radio's Jared Serbu has the story.
