Federal agencies will add more than 270,000 employees during the next three years, according to a report from the Partnership for Public Service.
The total projected hiring for “mission-critical jobs” is expected to jump more than 40 percent during fiscal 2010 to 2012 from the previous three years.
The Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit compiled the report after surveying 35 federal agencies about hiring needs.
