The Quiet Crisis: Research and Best Practices for Hiring and Recruiting



The public sector faces some of the most significant hiring challenges of any segment in today's hyper-competitive job market. 

As the creator of GovernmentJobs.com, NEOGOV noticed specific trends in hiring data. Since 2021, there has been a 45% increase in public sector job openings and a 56% decrease in applicants per job. To find answers, we surveyed HR directors and job seekers. The surprising results, and strategies to overcome these challenges, are yours in our comprehensive report, The Quiet Crisis in the Public Sector
