OPM Unveils Federal Cyber Talent Recruitment Portal

The Office of Personnel Management has launched a new website that offers information and tools to support talent recruitment from various sources such as federal government websites.

OPM said Tuesday CyberCareers.gov is a central element of the Federal Cybersecurity Workforce Strategy and designed to provide specific cybersecurity information and resource portals to job hunters, managers and supervisors as well as human resources personnel to aid the development of tools and guides for talent recruitment.

“The launching of the CyberCareers.gov website is an important step in advancing OPM’s mission to recruit, hire, develop, and retain the top cybersecurity talent the government needs by building the cybersecurity workforce pipeline,” said Beth Cobert, acting OPM director.

“We collaborated with agency cyber partners to create content for this website and will continue to update the site through user interactions and feedback provided from those experiences,” Cobert added.

The Federal Cybersecurity Workforce Strategy follows existing and forward-leaning policies to help agencies develop, hire, recruit and retain talent as well as build the cybersecurity workforce.
