by , Posted February 13, 2013 - 17:58

GovLoop, the premier social network for government employees, contractors, and interns has announced a Virtual Government Career Fair. The focus of the career fair is to discuss and identify new strategies to land a job in government and advance your career in the federal sector.

When: February 28th. 11am – 3:30pm
Cost: Free

GovLoop’s Virtual Career Fair will feature the following incentives for virtual attendees:

  • 2 interactive keynote sessions
  • Live chats to assist with professional networking, mentor assignments, and the dreaded government application process
  • Ask the Experts session
  •  Hear best practice strategies and lessons learned from senior execs that have succeed in government
  • Interact with agency representatives and learn more about participating organizations
  • Cut through the cluster of resumes by submitting yours directly to agencies

GovLoop is the premier destination for Professional Networking for Government Professionals

Sounds good. Why is this relevant to SharePoint professionals?

The government application process applies to all types of positions within the Federal government. SharePoint professionals who possess Senior level abilities are often disqualified from Federal employment due to lack of understanding regarding the USA Jobs process and Federal Resume formatting. As a certified Federal Resume Writer, I view this as an excellent opportunity to acquire needed skills for SharePoint professionals.

What is GovLoop?

GovLoop’s mission is simple: connect government to improve government. We aim to inspire public sector professionals to better service by acting as the knowledge network for government.

GovLoop serves more than 50,000 members by helping them to foster collaboration, learn from each other, solve problems and advance in their government careers. The GovLoop community has been widely recognized across the public sector — federal, state local, industry and academia — as a leading site for addressing public sector issues.

GovLoop is the largest government niche network of its kind and boasts an extremely engaged membership that create or comment on nearly 1,000 blog posts and discussion forums every month.

GovLoop works with top industry partners, including Google, HP, Microsoft and IBM to provide resources and tools, such as guides, infographics, online training and educational events, for public sector professionals. GovLoop also promotes public service success stories in popular news sources like the Washington Post, Huffington Post, Government Technology, and other industry publications.

Steve Ressler founded GovLoop in 2008 as a federal employee searching for answers to common government problems. His passion for improving public service as a third generation federal employee drove him to create what has become GovLoop.
