What information and high-value data should we provide to make our agency more accountable, improve public knowledge of our work, and create economic opportunity? How can we make information and data available in a timely and accessible manner?

Regarding USA JOBs application system - a cruel nightmare.

I was pleased to see that all you needed to do to share an idea here was to "log in" using a google or aol or some such account, now that's the ticket. Your on to something - simplicity. You need more of it, government job boards and resume registering are so convoluted and difficult. College transcripts, GPAs for degrees earned over twenty years ago. You fill out and reply pages of inane data and where does it... more »

OPM should webcast all meetings

OPM should live webcast all meetings for proposed rule making and regulations where the public comment should take place. They should make these meetings available for on demand viewing and have the ability to have that content be indexed for video search. By doing this the public and stakeholders will be able to see the inner workings of the rule making process and make the content and proceedings transparent to the... more »

Employer Profiles 2.0 on USAJobs.gov

On the current USAJOBS site, there is little information about the individual employers outside of what is discussed in the specific job description. The Silver Search offering allows an employer to brand the header of the position listing, but doesn’t allow for much more. Deciding to work for an organization is a major life-changing decision for an individual. A college student may want to know about training and advancement... more »

When evaluating current employees seeking other federal positions, I'd like to see constructive feedback on how competitive our resume and qualifications were compared to other applicants. Also,provide a summary of what qualities, skill sets, education and experience separated those considered for the position from those not considered. This feedback would help better prepare applicants for future consideration.... more »

USAJOBS Data on Data.gov

I would like to see the USAJOBS data on data.gov.

 

Right now I think the data is available through partnerships with OPM. I would remove that barrier and make it easy to just grab the data from data.gov.

 

This would allow lots of innovation around the hiring process by 3rd party developers and would not cost OPM money.

Check that OPM HR Select the right candidates.

I know of a case where a 10 point disable veteran currently working as a contractor for OPM has been rejected to work as a Federal Employee for the same position in the same location and doing the same work that he has been doing for over a year. I notice that many federal HR personnel are being influenced by management to select only those employees they one for the position and not the employees that can better do the... more »

Another benefit would be to ultimately mitigate risk from losing talent during... more »

One USAJOBS Portal

Inside deals area real problem with Dept of Army. Several agencies use AVEU, others USAJOBs still others only accept hard copy US mail applications. make it simple if AVEU is good enoug, then all agencies use that. The Army system has so many screen out words that have been passed out to spouses that all the spouse needs to do is write a good story to make the priority list.
