Federal CIO Council to Sponsor Federal Tech/Cyber Hiring and Recruitment Event

Washington, D.C. - The General Services Administration (GSA) today announced the Federal Chief Information Officers Council will host the first-ever, Governmentwide Federal Tech/Cyber Hiring and Recruitment Event. The event will be held Nov. 6-7 at the Silver Spring Civic Building at Veterans Plaza in Silver Spring, Maryland.

The federal government is seeking top information technology and cybersecurity talent to fill critical skills gaps. Data architects, computer scientists, cyber analysts, engineers, mathematicians, and project managers are needed to defend the nation’s infrastructure, deliver digital services to the American people, and modernize the federal government’s IT systems and operations.

Over 20 federal agencies will collaboratively recruit, interview, and hire applicants on the spot, in a streamlined hiring process. Additionally, participants will have access to free training seminars that will cover resume writing, interviewing, and applying to federal government jobs. Webinars on these topics will also be made available to applicants prior to the event.

Candidates of all experience levels are welcome to apply to position openings from Sept. 15-29 on USAJOBS. Qualified candidates may be selected to interview during the event.
