OPM Launches New Cyber Careers Website

Washington, DC – Today, the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) launched the CyberCareers.gov website.  The CyberCareers.gov website is a critical piece of the Federal Cybersecurity Workforce Strategy that was published in July 2016. 

The Federal Cybersecurity Workforce Strategy focuses on existing and forward-leaning policies that will help the Federal Government build the cybersecurity workforce pipeline as well as recruit, hire, develop, and retain top talent.  The new website highlights information and tools from reputable websites, including a heavy reliance on Federal Government websites.    

“The launching of the CyberCareers.gov website is an important step in advancing OPM’s mission to recruit, hire, develop, and retain the top cybersecurity talent the government needs by building the cybersecurity workforce pipeline,” said Beth Cobert, Acting Director of OPM. “We collaborated with agency cyber partners to create content for this website and will continue to update the site through user interactions and feedback provided from those experiences.”

The CyberCareers.gov website will provide specific cybersecurity information and resource portals to job seekers, managers and supervisors.  This website will be a completely new, multi-use platform used to recruit new talent, including students.  The platform will also assist hiring managers and HR professionals with tools and guides for developing and supporting their current strategies.  

Based on user feedback, the website will continue to be updated with cybersecurity information and resources to support current Federal employees, students and academics.  The portal will provide training and development opportunities, collaboration with others, and a link to benefits for current Federal employees.  The portal for students and academics will share information about special programs for recent graduates and college students.  It will also provide more information about the benefits of working for the Federal Government as well as training and development opportunities.

The Cybercareers.gov website is designed to be a user-friendly portal and it will be updated monthly.  Therefore, OPM welcomes user feedback to improve functionality and to enhance the user-interface experience with the website.
