Heather Krasna, MS started the topic How to recruit and retain young people in government? in the forum Human Resources 8 years, 10 months ago
I’m writing a piece for a nationally-known news source about how to recruit and retain young people into government–with a special focus on “Gen Y”/Millenials (those under the age of 30 or so). Please comment– and tell me if you want to be quoted or not– on any of the following:
1. What is the single most difficult thing about working in government as someone under the age of, say, 35 or 40?2. What was the most challenging (frustrating or difficult) part of the hiring process (as compared with the private or nonprofit sector)?3. What is the best thing about being a young(er) person in government?4. What drew you to public service?5. If you could suggest anything to higher management in government to help them attract and retain young people, what would it be?
