Tim McManus, Vice President, Partnership for Public Service

Tim McManus is vice president for education and outreach for the Partnership for Public Service. He shared his Top 3 for 2015 on In Depth with Francis Rose. He told Federal News Radio's Nicole Ogrysko he's optimistic government can do more to attract more millennials to the federal workforce, but it needs to overcome a few challenges first.
