Federal Hiring Update

The Washington Post reports that the federal government will hire an estimated 125,000 new, full-time employees during this fiscal year. About two-thirds of them will replace approximately 82,000 retiring employees. If economic conditions improve, the estimate of retirees likely will increase.

NB More than 77% of FY 2010's new hires were in Homeland Security, Defense, Veterans Affairs and Justice.
