In exchange for generous scholarships in fields such as engineering, information technology, foreign languages and public health, the scholars would commit to three to five years of service in an agency of the federal government.
The majority of new federal hires are expected to come from five professional fields, led by jobs in the medical and public health category, as well as in security and protection. The number of medical and public health openings projected from now through fall of 2012 is 53 percent higher than from 2007 through 2009, while the demand for security and protection positions show an estimated increase of 46 percent during that timeframe.
In an effort to help government attract top talent, the Partnership is launching Phase II of its three-year pilot project focusing on the recruitment, hiring, and onboarding of entry-level talent in mission-critical occupations. Participating federal agencies will explore strategies to build talent pipelines, develop innovative approaches to branding and messaging on college campuses, and adopt best practices from the public, private, and non-profit sectors.
