  • Coordinating nationwide on-site and virtual hiring fairs;
  • Collaborating with the Office of Human Resources (OHR) to establish an Excepted Service resume repository; and
  • Partnering with career services agencies, educational institutions,
    scientific associations and social service agencies.
