Getting Started in the Federal Government - A Webinar with GAIN

2017 was quite a year for folks looking to land a career in the federal government. For starters, the year started off with a hiring “freeze” for federal agencies followed by a series of new initiatives to transform federal hiring by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). The hiring “freeze” (if there ever was one) is over now. Most agencies have picked up hiring again, but agencies with a national security, public health, law enforcement, or other missions the government considered to be “critical” never really stopped hiring. This meant there were (and still are) thousands of federal jobs waiting to be filled!


AskNot LLC and GAIN are teaming up again for the next installment of our series focused on helping you find federal jobs, titled “Launching your Federal Career”.


This webinar will go through the basics on how to get started, answering common questions, including:

  • How should candidates from the Private sector approach a transition?

  • How should students and young professionals approach the job hunt?

  • How should candidates right from college obtain the experience they need?
