Federal agencies play a critical role in addressing our nation’s most pressing issues. To tackle these challenges, ranging from protecting the environment to caring for our veterans, our government needs the right people working on its behalf.
Call to Serve is intended to connect students and jobseekers with federal opportunities by educating and encouraging these individuals to pursue government careers, and improving agencies’ ability to recruit and hire them.
For more than a decade, the Partnership, with support from the Office of Personnel Management, has executed a wide variety of Call to Serve programming designed to get talent into government, including workshops, webinars and pilot projects with select schools and agencies. Through these activities and others, the organization has engaged thousands of college and university faculty and staff members, federal agency representatives, and students and jobseekers, and gained valuable insights into effectively promoting public service.
Comprised of more than 775 campus members and hundreds of agency contacts, the Call to Serve Network is well-positioned to leverage and share these tips and strategies to help schools inspire students and jobseekers into federal careers, and assist agencies in implementing innovative recruiting and hiring techniques, and building their capacity to attract mission-critical talent.
