Federal agencies are busier than ever before. Federal positions are in more demand than ever before. Human resources departments are over worked and understaffed, but when it comes to applications all applicants have a right to know what their applicant status is. Most notifications are sent to the applicants email address which they provided on their application. Many applicants are not getting notifications until they are found unqualified or the announcement has been cancelled. This is where the new Federal Hiring Reform comes in.
The new Hiring Reform provides guidance to agencies for the necessity to inform applicants of their application status every single time their applicant status changes. Notifications are being released to applicants as their status is updated. For more information on the new federal Hiring Reform go to the website http://www.opm.gov/hiringreform/index.aspx.
