Wonder what the numbers looked like 2 or 3 years ago and 5 or 6 years ago…
ASSUME that the same 2.3 percent of all graduates… and ASSUMMING that 2009 numbers are about the same as 2011 where 1,600,000 people received bachelor degrees would indicate ~37,000 new hires at the entry level in these relative austere budgetary times.
Elsewhere on GovLoop there is a discussion about the CBO discussion about Federal Pay levels which indicated that professionals tended to get lower pay in the Federal Sector vs the Private Sector….
Elsewhere on GovLoop there is also a discussion on the effect of benefits in the federal sector on the hiring process…(Most new hires are not terribly interested in retirement benefits)
Yes, I am outside the beltway BUT, Haven’t seen a significant presence at Campus Job Fairs in the last 2 or 3 years and if the federal sector wants to hire more college graduates I would offer that perhaps the solution is NOT to wait on them to come to “us” looking for a job….
