Federal Jobs Site Doesn’t Work
It may be just the evidence opponents of vast Federal bureaucracy need. A website set up to help jobseekers find Federal positions is wrought with technical errors and simply doesnâ€™t work correctly, jobseekers say.
The website, which is run by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), is full of bugs because officials say there is a massive amount of traffic on the site, according to The Washington Post.
â€śIf a private contractor was delivering this, the government would have terminated them for cause immediately,â€ť Adam Davidson, general manager for human capital management at Oracle, a company that provides payroll and other systems to Federal agencies, said.
The site was originally run by Monster, a private job search site, but was taken over by the Federal government in 2009 to be reworked by the OPM at a cost of about $20 million, according to budget figures.
Some opponents of the government setting up an in-house job site believe that the move locks out private job search companies from being able to post Federal jobs as the government requires agencies to use the system.
