Boomers, Uncle Sam Wants YOU

An effort is underway in federal agencies to recruit boomers. The Patent and Trademark Office and the EPA already target boomers for the thousand of positions they need to fill. According to this article in the Federal Times:

The Partnership for Public Service, a Washington public service advocacy group, launched an initiative earlier this year to encourage agencies to recruit more baby boomers.

"It's a big government, and there are a lot of corners that are doing innovative work," said Max Stier, president. The group is researching how recruiters can better attract older workers to government. Results of the research will be released this fall, and pilot programs will be launched next year to try out some new tricks. But agencies shouldn't wait for results before they increase their efforts, Stier said.


It's a long way from attacking the military-industrial complex, but we're older and wiser now. Besides, a job's a job.
