Federal Government Needs Job Applicants 

Uncle Sam wants you, to apply for a government job.It’s estimated that by 2016, 40% of all current federal employees will retire, creating a huge shortage.Plus, the economic stimulus package passed by the federal government is expected to create 120,000 more jobs in just three years.That’s why a federal human resources specialist stopped by the University of Maine today, to let people know how to apply. Julie Saad says he process is more complicated than a private sector position. “This is a lot more involved, and you really want to look for jobs that you really want to apply to because it’s better to do since the applications are so involved. It’s better to do a few quality applications rather than a lot of applications that are not well done.”For more information on federal government jobs, log onto www.makingthedifference.org.
