GO-TIME: New State Employment Website Offers Improved Experience for Job Seekers

first_imgGO-TIME: New State Employment Website Offers Improved Experience for Job Seekers May 17, 2017 Efficiency,  GO-TIME,  Government That Works,  Innovation,  Press Release,  Results Harrisburg, PA. — An overhaul of the state’s job website and improvements to the application process are helping to make commonwealth employment more attractive to job seekers, according to the Governor’s Office of Transformation, Innovation, Management and Efficiency (GO-TIME).“For many years, outdated hiring processes have made it difficult for state agencies to compete with other employers in the job market,” said Secretary of Administration Sharon Minnich. “This is the first step in a much bigger effort to transform how we recruit and retain talent in state government.”The new website at www.employment.pa.gov lists non-civil service vacancies, as well as test announcements for civil service positions. Previously, individuals had to go to two different websites for information on commonwealth testing and employment.The website also includes a comprehensive list of high school, college, and graduate school student internship programs that were previously dispersed across multiple websites.Non-civil service postings are now vacancy-specific and include the position title, work location and description of duties. Previously, individuals had to apply to general job categories without knowing the exact position or if any openings were available.“The hiring process is more transparent for applicants and for managers,” said Minnich. “Job seekers know they are applying to a specific job that needs to be filled, and managers know that applicants are both interested in the work and available for the position.Job seekers can also subscribe to be notified by email when vacancies become available, rather than constantly revisiting the site to check for new postings. The website and online job application are both mobile device friendly.The new vacancy-based job postings are currently available only for non-civil service positions . The Office of Administration (OA) is working with the State Civil Service Commission to implement vacancy-based postings for the positions that it fills. Approximately 70 percent of all positions in state government are civil service.OA is also working with the commission to fully transition its test announcements and online application process to employment.pa.gov. This will enable individuals to view and apply for state government jobs on one website, using the same online application.The Governor’s Office of Transformation, Innovation, Management and Efficiency (GO-TIME), works with state agencies to modernize government operations in order to reduce costs and improve services. State agencies already saved over $156 million and Governor Wolf challenged GO-TIME to build upon this success by achieving $500 million in savings by 2020.To learn more about GO-TIME, visit www.governor.pa.gov/go-time.center_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

With Big East play looming, Syracuse looks to find consistency in low post

first_imgSyracuse owns the perimeter. At least when the Orange is on its game.SU’s ferocity inside the paint, though, hasn’t been as consistent.But as No. 9 Syracuse (11-1) finishes its nonconference schedule against Central Connecticut Monday at 3 p.m. in the Carrier Dome and prepares for Big East play, the Orange is trying to improve its interior play. The Orange offense works outside in, but if Syracuse’s big men can draw defenders and then pass back to the outside, SU’s lengthy guards on the perimeter will be much harder to shut down.“So we’ve got to have our perimeter guys playing well. We’ve got to get James some better looks,” head coach Boeheim said after the sloppy win against Alcorn State Saturday night. “Obviously Mike and Brandon have got to play well I think for this team to be successful.”Neither of SU’s regular point guards performed Saturday. The Orange tried for the inside instead. While Syracuse scored 32 points in the paint, just 10 came from SU big men DaJuan Coleman, Rakeem Christmas and Baye Moussa Keita. Forwards C.J. Fair and Jerami Grant contributed another eight. The Orange’s play in the low post was solid, but far from dominant against an otherwise overmatched Alcorn State (2-13) team.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe result was an under-performing outside display leading to an uneasy 57-36 win.Hamstringing the Orange’s interior play were constant trips to the foul line. There, an infectious deficiency took hold. Alcorn State sent SU to the line 24 times, but the Orange failed to execute once it got there. The Braves fouled SU so often that Grant said it was Alcorn State’s way of making up for a deficient defense.“I didn’t feel like it was on purpose, I feel like their defense was just that bad so they had to foul every possession,” freshman Grant said.But SU’s big men failed to make Alcorn State pay. The team went 12-of-28 from the line. Including Fair and Grant in addition to the Orange’s centers, the SU inside men went an even more abysmal 6-of-18.With Carter-Williams and Triche struggling to penetrate off the dribble throughout the game, outside shooting going consistently awry and SU’s postgame failing to capitalize at the line, the Orange attack went stagnant.The foul-shooting problem has spread throughout the team, but it’s costliest underneath.“You miss a few and then you think you can make a few, that’s fine. Then it gets in your head and then, I think it sprinkled down. You know, a few guys miss shots, then when you miss them you start worrying about it every time you go to the line,” Triche said. “You’re thinking ‘all right I got to make these,’ just more thinking about it.”Grant called getting to the hoop part of his game. But inside play is not part of the Orange’s just yet. SU has given glimpses of hope as Coleman put up a solid eight points Saturday night. Still, the paint is not a reliable place for points for the Orange.At the end of Boeheim’s postgame press conference Saturday night, a reporter asked the head coach if he thought the inside would be reliable by year’s end.“The end of what year? The question would’ve been good if you said what year. Not this year, this year’s almost over,” Boeheim said, then paused.“Let’s say it’s not this season.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on December 30, 2012 at 11:57 pm Contact Jacob: [email protected] | @Jacob_Klinger_last_img read more
