John Palguta, Vice President for Policy, Partnership for Public Service

When federal agencies have a job opening, they tend to horde their candidates. And there's little sharing of candidate evaluation when someone does apply for a job at more than one agency.

Tim McManus is vice president for Education and Outreach at the Partnership for Public Service. He explained why the numbers shouldn't scare off agencies on In Depth with Francis Rose.
