Special Recruitment Programs:
Example, FedExperience Transitions to Government (Good news for Baby Boomers)

According to a press release issued January 17, 2008, Partnership for Public Service and IMB teamed to steer baby boomers to mission critical government jobs. Corporate America vies for the best in the war on talent and the war is hitting the Federal government hard, as more than one-third of the full-time permanent Federal workforce gets ready to retire or leave in the next five years, according to the Partnership for Public Service. FedExperience Transitions to Government is an initiative to help match government’s critical hiring needs with the talents of baby boomers looking for encore careers where they can find interesting and challenging work. The U.S. Department of Treasury will pilot the program.The initial goal is for the Treasury Department to identify, recruit, and hire interested IBM employees and retirees and match them to key Federal government jobs.Nearly 14,000 mission-critical jobs need to be filled at the U.S. Department of Treasury in the next two years, including 7,950 IRS agents and tax examiners. Procurement, IT, and accounting positions are also on their “most wanted” job list, according to the report.
