OPM Continues Televised Federal Recruitment Ad Campaign in Spokane

Ads Urge Americans to Consider a Career in the Federal Workforce

Washington, D.C. - U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Director Linda M. Springer today announced the continuation of OPM's television recruitment ad campaign designed to raise public awareness of career opportunities available in the Federal government. The ads began running in the Spokane, WA television market on Monday, January 15. The ads encourage viewers to visit for Federal employment information.

"The Federal government is a fun, exciting, and rewarding place to work and at any given time there are as many as 20,000 opportunities to join the team," Director Springer said. "As the Baby Boomers retire, we need talented and motivated citizens from all walks of life to pick up and carry the standard for the future of the nation.  It doesn't matter what your profession more than likely there is an opportunity for you to work for America."

The ads, which were first aired at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. in the spring of 2006 and have run in 13 media markets across the nation, including Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Fresno, California; Cincinnati, Ohio and Colorado Springs, CO.

Each ad features real Federal workers discussing some of the divergent opportunities available within the Federal workforce. The ads instruct viewers to visit for more information and instructions on how to apply.

"More than ever before, the Federal government needs you to come serve your nation as a member of the Federal workforce team," Springer concluded. "I encourage Americans throughout Spokane and surrounding communities to visit today."
