Tim McManus, Vice President, Partnership for Public Service

Millennials make up about 7 percent of the federal workforce. About 61 percent of millennials who do work for the government say they're satisfied with their jobs.

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.

Customs and Border Protection has been steadily increasing its number of agents. But recently the agency commissioned a recruitment drive aimed at boosting the ranks of female agents. Only about 5 percent of CBP's 21,000 agents are women. But with more and more women trying to cross the Mexican border, CBP officials think having more women agents could help. Commissioner Gil Kerlikowske spoke with Tom Temin on the Federal Drive about the agency's push to hire more female agents, starting with the results of its recruitment drive.
