DHS has a new tech tool: TalentLink

Tools

The Department of Homeland Security has a new IT tool that will help its HR department in recruiting and hiring personnel. It's called TalentLink, an IT platform to help its subcomponent agencies cut back on the time it takes to recruit and hire new personnel.

The timing couldn't be better. The federal government is expected to lose thousands of IT personnel in the next two years as they retire. And the number of IT workers is likely to increase dramatically in the next few years as agencies initiate transparency throughout government and use IT to improve cybersecurity.
