Oof. Sorry I’m just getting to this message now! Great info – thanks much!
Hello GovLoop Community!
I’m looking to touch base with anyone from the Interior Department who is examining internal communications in their office or bureau.
Why just Interior?
Well, I have some specific questions and thoughts about the utilization of our BisonConnect platform.
If you are interested in collaborating, please tweet at me -…[Read more]
So, now that 2013 is in full swing, so to speak, a lot of my friends are evaluating their New Year’s resolutions and wondering if they’re actually going to be able to keep them.
This includes myself, of course.
Will I be able to effectively balance work and classes and get my thesis proposal done on time and eat properly and get to the gym and…[Read more]
I would love to see a panel or breakout session about how to get started in project management. How can you best effectively approach your supervisor? How can you develop trust with others in the office so that they will follow your lead? Also, some tips about working toward the PMP would be helpful.

Hello GovLoop! Happy New Year!
One of my first tasks in 2013 is to organize documents, information, and folders on part of our Intranet. And there is A LOT of data that needs to be moved around.
Does anyone have any ideas, tips, or resources they might be willing to share?
Thanks so much!

Thanks for the session today! It was very informative. Although I am still working on my MA, I do agree that grad school can be very beneficial when it comes to advancing a career. I do also think, though, that it is VERY important to find a program that you really love. (And this point was raised today by the speaker.) I know a few people who…[Read more]
I also randomly just came across this infographic, which I think has some pretty powerful suggestions as to how to identify and avoid burnout: http://www.thesimpledollar.com/burnout/
Encourage your best/most productive employees to UNPLUG. I have seen more than one person (Boomer, Gen X and Millennial) burn out or get fed up because all they did was work. It is important to work hard … but I think it is just as important to take the (occasional) vacation or long weekend. With technology invading every aspect of our lives,…[Read more]
As someone who is considering the SES, I am hoping that I can effectively balance my personal and professional life. I would love to excel at both, but I don’t want to have to sacrifice time with my family to get a promotion.
The first day of May can be somewhat bittersweet for interns and fellows in the professional world.
Many undergrad and graduate students are preparing to leave internships that they have had for a semester or two — and others are getting ready for graduation and entering the working world as full time employees.
I will soon be leaving GovLoop…[Read more]

The Thrift Savings Plan is now offering a Roth option.
The Senate is considering a variety of changes that could affect USPS employees.
And NPR just posted an article about Baby Boomers and long-term care insurance.
Saving for retirement, collective bargaining, long-term care insurance …. these are just some of the pay and benefits issues…[Read more]
We all remember the fervor over the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) earlier this year.
Back in January, the GovLoop community had a lively discussion about the bill.
And while SOPA might be just but a memory, a new piece of legislation is now causing certain members of the Internet community consternation.
It’s called the Cyber Intelligence…[Read more]
Tech news is seemingly always rife with stories about one or two innovators making a crazy amount of money after creating “the next best thing”.
Instagram, after all, recently made two guys incredibly rich.
And we all know about the guy who invented Facebook.
Google Drive will premiere next week, if everything goes according to plan.
But all of…[Read more]

I love lists, and I thought this one was entertaining … although I am not sure how accurate it is. I think I would put the stress level of high school teacher much higher — but I also come from a family of teachers, so I might be biased. 😉
As a rule, I generally ignore the comments sections on most news sites, mainly because of the point Andy brings up: anonymous commenting can lead to some pretty poor behavior. I do treat information on sites like Wikipedia differently, though. I studied journalism and history in undergrad, so I just got into the habit early on of fact-checking…[Read more]
