Last week’s election was a historic moment in America. I believe we have an opportunity to build on this moment by increasing diversity throughout the Federal government. To help advance this goal, I would like to provide you with the following information regarding employment opportunities in the Federal government.
Every four years, the “United States Government Policy and Supporting Positions” (the Plum Book) is published. This book contains information about more than 7,000 Federal civil service leadership and support positions in the legislative and executive branches of the Federal Government. You can access the Plum Book (dated November 12, 2008) at http://www.gpoaccess.gov/ plumbook/2008/2008_plum_book. pdf or at http://directory. presidentialtransition.gov/ index.cfm by clicking on the link “Leadership Position.”
The website for the Office of the President-elect contains information to help prospective applicants apply for positions in the Administration. Prospective applicants for non-career positions should go to www.change.gov for more information on the application process. Prospective applicants for career, civil service positions should visit the Office of Personnel Management at http://www.usajobs.gov.
I hope you find this information useful and urge you to join me in the effort to increase diversity throughout the Federal government. As always, please do not hesitate to contact me or my staff if you have any questions or would like additional information.
