Hey folks...

The job market is hot right now and employers have been having trouble filling the vacancies. I understand it's the different market, sector, blue-collar jobs, etc...

Are the federal agencies having trouble filling the job openings? Especially, upper GS scale positions starting with GS13/GS14 positions?

Not really been an issue for all the hiring panels I've been involved with over the past year. All at the GS13 and above.

It depends on the series, job duties,and where the job is. Positive education jobs are harder to fill. Jobs targeting special skill set can be harder to fill like familiarity with a programming language or special software.

Some job announcements go through pool cycles like limiting to agency only, Then local area federal, Then national

Also they may first do national, then re announce giving relo.
