The Call To Serve initiative -- a joint effort by the Partnership for Public Service and the Office of Personnel Management -- is planning a workshop for September that will focus on federal agencies' use of social media for recruiting. The workshop is part of an annual Effective Hiring Workshop Series for federal agency representatives. In the meantime, the Partnership and OPM are asking federal employees to fill out a survey on what areas should be covered in the workshop.
"For some agencies, the use of social media is a new, untried idea; others have started using these techniques to reach out to potential candidates for federal jobs and student programs," the survey states. "The purpose of the workshop is to enable agencies to learn from each other the pros and cons, barriers and opportunities, and best practices about use of these new techniques."
