The “New Sheriff in Town” is hiring. Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis, in her aggressive campaign against employers is in need of “deputies.” You cannot conduct all those enforcement activities without people. So the USDOL is in a big hiring mode. If you have ever considered working for the government and want to apply your HR background this may be an opportunity. The Feds, just like any other employer needs talent, especially management talent (that is an understatement, but we won’t go there).
If you are in need of work, can swallow your pride (just kidding) and go over to the “enemy” (your HR friends may never talk to you again) here is the link to DOORS (DOL Online Opportunities Recruitment System) where you can view jobs that are available.
I am not sure what the long term prospects may be, but if you stick around, the Federal Government may be the only organization that will be able to afford to pay pensions.
