Working for Virginia

Secretary Nancy RodriguesVirginia Secretary of Administration Nancy Rodrigues announced the Department of Human Resource Management has a new job search database effective April 21, 2015. This new system makes it is easier to navigate, to apply to multiple positions, and to find positions requiring foreign language skills.

Speaking at the “Elevate the Presence of Latinos in State Government” workshop, Secretary Rodrigues gave practical pointers for job seekers. Noting that all applicants are first screened by a computer, the use of key words and verbiage from the job posting is vital. This is not a time for creativity or synonyms. Also, 30% of job applicants complete their application and then fail to click the “submit” button that actual finishes the process. Without submitting the application, it cannot be considered.

Lastly, language skills will give job applicants the competitive edge over their peers. In Virginia, Spanish is the most desired language, and American Sign Language is second. The new job system allows user to select “bilingual/multilingual” in the job search to find those positions faster.

The coming years should see a rise in the number of available government positions. Currently, 1 in 10 Virginia employees are qualified to retire. By 2016, that number will be 1 in 4. Visit http://jobs.virginia.gov to pursue a career working for the Commonwealth of Virginia.
