Terry Halvorsen, acting Defense Department chief information officer, is looking to diversify the Pentagon’s information technology workforce by hiring younger workers, AFCEA International reported on June 25.

Halvorsen spoke at the recent AFCEA International Cyber Symposium about DoD’s need for workers with more than just the right skill sets, Robert Ackerman writes.

“We need to attract a younger work force. We’re filling jobs, but we’re not getting the right mix,” Halvorsen said.

According to the report, Halvorsen is also pushing for change in regulations to enable more collaboration between industry and DoD as the department faces a lack of staff resources due to budget cuts.
