GCN : May 2013
Source: Symantec Internet Security Threat Report [BrieFing] 8 GCN MAY 2013 • GCN.COM As government employees who are part of the baby boomer generation begin to retire, agencies are looking toward younger generations of workers. To attract them, though, of cials will need to reevaluate the methods they use to recruit and retain talent, moving away from traditional portals and websites that post static job listings and applica- tions to more dynamic and interactive approaches. Recognizing the trend, of cials at NGA.NET U.S. Public Sector have added two features to the company's eRecruit solution that lets federal agencies more easily post jobs on social media plat- forms such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. Additionally, the tools, SocialS- mashed and Social Apply, help agencies generate in-depth analytics that report the effectiveness of government social recruiting initiatives, of cials said. "The methods today's job seekers use to look for and apply to jobs are evolving, and government agencies are looking for solutions that cater to the nuances of a broader talent pool," Tim Enright, vice president of sales for NGA. NET, said in a statement. SocialSmashed lets agency manag- ers quickly post job listings on their established social media platforms, getting the information out to a larger audience, NGA.NET of cials said. The tool lets agency recruiters post jobs to a branded job tab on their agency's page that displays jobs and lets potential candidates apply, share, recommend or like available positions. For Twitter, the available position is converted into a tweet with an associated hashtag, making it more searchable. With Linke- dIn, recruiters at federal agencies can automatically synch job opportunities to their own status updates, ensuring that opportunities are shared to the recruiter's network of followers. Social Apply lets agencies add an "Apply with LinkedIn" feature into job postings, speeding up the candidate application process. With eRecruit Social Apply, candidates' relevant information is pre-populated from their LinkedIn pro- les into the online job applications, sav- ing time and reducing errors, NGA.NET of cials said. In addition, candidates will be prompted to complete any missing data on the employment application that is not available in their LinkedIn pro le. The two social media capabilities are the latest efforts by NGA.NET to en- hance how agency managers recruit and hire quality candidates. The company has teamed with Lockheed Martin on StaffAcq360, a cloud-hosted recruiting and hiring system for federal agen- cies. Developed by Lockheed Martin, StaffAcq360 uses NGA.NET's eRecruit talent acquisition system and is available as a software-as-service subscription from Lockheed. The solution runs behind a secure rewall in Lockheed Martin's Federal Information Security Manage- ment Act-compliant cloud. • IT goes social to help agencies boost recruiting BY RUTRELL YASIN The most targeted sectors for cyberattacks PERCENT OF IDENTIFIED ATTACKS 2012 GOVERNMENT MANUFACTURING RETAIL GOVERNMENT MANUFACTURING RETAIL 2011 3% 2%
