OPM's USAJOBS Continues to Attract Large Numbers of Job Seekers Who Want to Work for Their Country

Washington, DC - With millions of job seekers looking to find their "perfect" career, the U.S. Office of Personnel Management's (OPM) USAJOBS website continues to experience great success.

"USAJOBS is an example of a hugely successful internet job site, one that helps people identify opportunities with the federal government," said OPM Director Linda M. Springer. "USAJOBS offers the American people a useful access point to federal jobs, and it helps them remain updated as to ‘what is out there.'"

During Fiscal Year 2007 (October 2006 through September 2007), a record 94,324,604 visitors went to the USAJOBS site, generating over 1 billion page hits.

"I am committed to USAJOBS and the helpful options it provides," said Springer. "For those interested in federal employment and the benefits it provides, there is no better place to go."

Since the beginning of Fiscal Year 2008, visitors to USAJOBS have equated to another record 10,000,000 per month; and, they have generated an average 124,000,000 monthly page hits. Should that trend continue unabated or further increase, FY 2008 will be yet another banner year for USAJOBS.
