Now more than ever, there is a drastic decline in applicants for open public sector jobs. The ability to recruit and actively engage the best and most qualified candidates with such a small talent pool has never been more crucial.
Since 2021, there has been a 45% increase in public sector job openings and a 56% decrease in applicants per job. These trends inspired NEOGOV to speak to both HR directors and job seekers to learn more about this quiet crisis.
Current job applicants shared that the opportunity to do meaningful work and having a good benefits package far outweighs salary when considering a career in the public sector. Public Service Loan Forgiveness has undergone recent changes and is now one most valuable employee benefits out there.
This webinar, in partnership with Summer, the leading digital student loan solution, we will unpack the challenges in public sector hiring and how to use the Public Service Loan Forgiveness to attract job candidates.
