Pär Larsson started the topic GovLoop for networking/job search – effective or not? in the forum Career Advancement 8 years, 5 months ago
Just found out about GovLoop a few days ago and was wondering how/if this place is anywhere near an effective use of time for job searching?
So far it seems more about just socially networking gov’t employees and finding others in similar situations with similar professional interests, but I suppose that might depend on the proficiencies you have, what industry and career you’re looking at. At first glance this site also doesn’t seem to have quite reached the critical mass of so many gov’t employees using it that it’ll be as useful as LinkedIn or anywhere near as pervasive as facebook.
