Federal Hiring Freeze

Postby albanach » Mon Jan 23, 2017 1:07 pm

As expected, the new administration has halted non-military hires and pay increases.

This could obviously have significant repercussions for those seeking to enter the federal government this year.

The Washington Post article has been updated to say the freeze excludes “military, public safety, and public health.”

Interested to see how this plays out. Hoping this works out for everyone entering federal gov't roles.
