Alliance Partners on Tech to Gov Job Fair
On January 18, the Alliance continued its series of virtual public sector career fairs through a new partnership with the Tech Talent Project and the US Office of Personnel Management (OPM) on a free virtual Tech to Gov Forum and Job Fair. Representatives from 55 government employers seeking tech talent—such as the US Digital Service, the State Department, the Department of Veterans Affairs, and the States of New York and California—joined to talk one-on-one with nearly 1,900 job seekers with technology backgrounds. The event also included webinars featuring senior technology and human capital leaders in government, including the Director of OPM and the US Chief Technology Officer, making the case for public service and sharing lessons on how to transition to government.
This opportunity is part of the larger Tech to Gov project, a collaborative effort among civic tech and public service organizations to help recruit people with technology skills into government.
